RE: RE-SISTERS
Jan 22nd, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

Last Friday, I suggested the Women’s March 2.0 might not be as humungous as it was last year.

I was wrong.

Another estimated 100,000 women, children, and men strode through downtown Seattle, reasserting their opposition to the hyper-reactionary DC regime and demanding a better future.

What’s next: continuing to resist and fight back, in measures large and small.
The biggest such moment will be at the midterm elections, a little more than nine months from now.

And you already know what miracles women can create within THAT timeframe.

1/22/18: RE-SISTERS
Jan 21st, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

To start off your week: Women’s March scenes; local comix legend dies; getting a taste of dementia; tech-biz sexism’s even worse than some imagine.

1/19/18: AND THE NOMINEES FOR CORPORATE GROVELING ARE…
Jan 19th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In your big weekend letter: Seattle won’t get Amazon’s HQ2; pre-Women’s March thoughts; health-care-crisis comix; there’s a state construction budget at last; and scads of weekend events.

1/18/18: GOING ANALOG
Jan 17th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday perusal: Nintendo’s tangible video-game add-ons; Microsoft pleads for AI ethics; what it takes to get a Twitter account ‘un-hacked’; a local TV legend retires.

1/8/17: I HAVE THE (LOW) POWER!
Jan 7th, 2018 by Clark Humphrey

In our first Monday missive in three weeks: Seattle DIY radio makes the NYT; the EPA re-hires State Sen. Doug Ericksen; MS fights a gender-discrimination suit; and Rattlesnake Ridge gets scarier.

12/14/17: NEUTRAL SPIRITS
Dec 14th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday perusal: everyone loves net neutrality except (some) corporations and the politicians they own; simply “praising” black women’s not enough; Fisherman’s terminal gets bigger; light-rail expansion to speed (slightly) up.

12/7/17: ALONG COMES MARY(S)
Dec 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your Thursday edification: Sung and unsung heroines of history; local sports legend sued for harassment; original 13 Coins’ last day; new Viaduct demolition schedule.

11/15/17: NOT THE SAME OLD SONG
Nov 15th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

For your post-blackout (we hope) Wednesday: David Bazan on being an ‘ex-Evangelical’; city council nixes ‘head tax’; another legal victory against Longview coal port; Marvel comes to MoPOP.

11/9/17: GOODNIGHT, MOON
Nov 9th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Jenny Durkan’s officially 2017 Seattle mayor #4; the state Senate ‘flips’; coastal seabirds are dying off; UW will inspect Nike contractors’ plants; teens in one OR town are officially forbidden to have sex.

11/8/17: ELECTION NIGHT IN THE BIZARRO WORLD
Nov 8th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

The “business progressive” leads for mayor; so do the leftish-leaning candidates for sheriff and state Senate; 77 years since Galloping Gertie; the Boeing 747’s last hurrah.

11/7/17: ON THE SPOT
Nov 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

In your pre-election letter: Fun-folky art saved in Eastern Wash.; Capitol women workers demand change; John Oliver vs. HQ2; a local name in the ‘Paradise Papers.’

11/6/17: FAKE FIR
Nov 6th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

On yet another day of mourning, our local focus is on keeping the Cascadia flag away from racist co-option; details of April’s downtown police shooting; and ‘indoor farming’ coming to Kent.

11/1/17: THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS
Nov 1st, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We start a new month, and with it one year to save America from its ‘saviors’. Other topics today: making local history less white; Olympia’s ‘old boys’ club’ and its discontents; big kudos for the local lit scene.

9/7/17: ‘FACE TO BEAK’
Sep 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

We won’t have Rep. Dave Reichert to kick around any more; Washington’s one of 15 states preparing to sue over the DACA decision; and wildfires continue to destroy forest lands and choke up the skies. But let’s also talk today about something REALLY important: the new Seahawks “alternate” logo, and the fun online commenters are having with it.

8/7/17: STATE OF THE ART (OF THE STATE)
Aug 7th, 2017 by Clark Humphrey

Seattle’s big, annual arts-travaganzas have come and gone, with subjects of identity and resistance scattered throughout. We touch upon that in Monday’s missive, as well as the sad decline of the hydros; alleged “shaming” harassment at an officially “inclusive” fandom convention; a phony Starbucks “meme” graphic; and how much Nikkita Oliver may have already changed local politics.
