6/26/17: NOT JUST ANOTHER SUNDAY ‘OUT’-ING
Jun 26th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The big-big-big Pride Parade couldn’t be stopped by heat, but was briefly paused by an unofficial “entrant,” a Charleena Lyles remembrance. In other MISCmedia MAIL subjects: Another needless shooting death, this time in the suburbs; the days still tick down toward a state-budget crisis; and 70 years since the first “flying saucer” sighting, right here in Wash. State.

6/22/17: ‘WE’RE HAVIN’ A HEAT WAVE…’
Jun 21st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

With summer finally, officially, among us, the hot-hot-hotness is due to arrive. And MISCmedia MAIL discusses more fallout from the Charleena Lyles shooting; the anniversary of the first foreign attack on the US mainland in WWII (in our state); still no progress in the state-budget stalemate; and what it means to be “Seattle-ready.”

5/22/17: I SEE YOU’VE MET THE ‘TWIN’S
May 22nd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Twin Peaks is back. Or rather, something mostly new under that title and with several of the old show’s characters has arrived, and it’s a beaut.  Today’s MISCmedia MAIL also looks at more Chris Cornell reactions; the death of a major local lit n’ history figure; one person named Grant dissing another; and a major Belltown arts-creation space going away.

5/5/17: LIGHTNING’S STRIKING AGAIN
May 4th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In MISCmedia MAIL: Yep, we had some weather Thursday. Like really big weather. Other things also occurred, including Dave Reichert’s meaningless “no” vote on decimating health care; a reprimand and fine against Ed Murray’s accuser’s attorney; and a bill to more easily arrest/prosecute “johns”. And we’ve got tons of weekend things-2-do.

4/24/17: THE SEASON FOR THE REASON
Apr 23rd, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your Monday newsletter: The signs at the March for Science may have been funny and punny, but the cause they represented is deadly serious. Plus: what a city income-tax measure would mean (not much at first except work for lawyers); reaching out to GLBT immigrants; Sounders and Mariners both finally win on the road; and a great local-politics blog bids a fond adieu.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/20/17: TIME FOR SPRING I SAY!
Mar 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

As we wait, sometimes more patiently than others, for the ol’ change-O-seasons thang, we take note of particularly dreadful faux-native American kitsch; a serious allegation against a local celeb; another call for less bro-dominance in tech; and the Case of the Paltry Pint Glass.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 3/8/17: YES, WHITE WOMEN ARE WHITE
Mar 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

International Women’s Day, and the call for a “Day Without a Woman” strike, have caused disunity and charges of “white privilege.” I also turn my eye to the White House’s war against Planet Earth; anti-Sikh violence a century ago and now; the city “sweeping” the homeless from a site the city had originally encouraged; and an impasse over the “levy cliff.”

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/28/17: TRAFFIC AND WEATHER TOGETHER
Feb 27th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Combine freakishly weird weather and a single accident that snarls car traffic all over town all day long, and you get just the thing to convince folk not to move here. We also talk about more anti-Semitic scare tactics; Gov. Inslee’s less-than-satisfactory day in DC; the twists n’ turns of a real-estate deal; and a squatted motel getting erased.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/20/17: FARM-FRESH JUSTICE
Feb 19th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Another weekend of protests included a rally by the extended family that is the Pike Place Market, along with a commemoration of the WWII internments. Our Monday e-missive also delves into a plan to save part of the Ramps to Nowhere; small towns suffering under Tim Eyman’s tax limits; a tragedy in my ol’ hometown; and the snarky heroism of Mark Cuban.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/17/17: I FEEL THE EARTH MOVE
Feb 16th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Mudslides knocked roads out of commission all over the area. Some might not be fully reopened until later today. Which might not matter if you’re participating in that general strike thang. We’re also observing a WA gay-rights victory; a black cop with words for black youth; the first court date for “dreamer” Daniel Ramirez Medina; and a credit union for the “financially abused.” And we’ve got dozens of weekend event choices as usual.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 2/7/17: SNOW-VANA
Feb 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The city on Monday was a temporary paradise of whiteness and silence and joy, a sign that brighter spirits and brighter times are indeed still possible. We’ve also got the latest of our Washington’s righteous fight back against that Washington; potential good news for oil-train opponents; the Port of Seattle’s now ex-CEO defending his record; and the most epic version of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” you’ll ever hear.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 1/19/17: THE DAY BEFORE
Jan 18th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

One day to rest up, make plans, and enjoy the calm before the GOPocalypse. So read up today about those weird restaurant-inspection icons; a possible municipal lawsuit against OxyContin’s makers; politicians who want to ban wind farms; and a UW Muslim student on the activist front lines.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 12/30/16: 86-ING ’16
Dec 29th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

I think pretty much all of us (even Sounders FC and Husky football fans) would consider this past year to have been, overall, a dud, a bomb, a Dumpster® fire; with even scarier days looming ahead. Nevertheless, we have news items to discuss in the here-n’-now, such as St. Mark’s Cathedral calling bigotry a sin; the pre-upzoning U District as America’s most competitive housing market; Mt. Rainier as one of the world’s “most dangerous volcanoes;” and dozens of places to go on the big night.

MISCmedia MAIL FOR 12/15/16: THIS YEAR’S MODEL
Dec 14th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We need all the socio-political allies we can get these days, even within the pages of Teen Vogue! We look as well at Amazon’s at-long-last charitable streak; a church sex-abuse victim who doesn’t like what the church said about her legal fight; the governor proposing a “carbon tax” while a state investment board puts money into the petrochemical biz; and a (justly) long-forgotten novelty sport.

MISCmedia MAIL for 12/9/16: SNOWTACULAR!
Dec 8th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Finally! Snow in the city, spectacular and beautiful (and rare and very temporary). Non-meteorological topics this day include gift books for the budding political activist in your family; a new, almost-1,200-unit residential complex; another local alt-media source needing support; a woman who videoed her own racial hate crime; and the usual umpteen weekend things-2-do.
