  • The Iceman Cometh
    Early Saturday morning, a short 66 years ago, I took the No. 11 bus and found myself standing on the corner of Broadway and Pike, right where the QFC is now.
  • Departed Pronto, we hardly knew you
    It would be easy to blame Mayor Ed Murray for pulling the plug on Pronto. But the City Council approved a budget in late November that anticipated Pronto’s end this March.
  • Living beside four new Madison Valley construction projects in the past five years has given me a first-hand view of differences that exist between residential and commercial building in Seattle.
  • The incoming total-control regime in Washington, D.C., and its egomaniacal central figure are existentially frightening in their threat to every aspect of the American republic, its people and, by extension, all the peoples of the globe.
  • Responding to our story about Seattle Public Schools’ potential budget deficit, a reader wrote:
  • With Republican Congress bent on depriving 22 million Americans of medical insurance, this is a great time to provide our own, totally free and totally effective health insurance — a plant-based diet.
  • HALA's hypocrites

    There’s a false narrative driving the massive upzoning of Seattle’s neighborhoods — the centerpiece of Mayor Ed Murray’s so called Housing Affordability and Livability Agenda (HALA).

  • So you marched. Now what?
    Marches are great for primal scream therapy and for community solidarity. They lubricate activist networking and inspire future organizing. They convince nobody of anything, but those other elements are essential.
  • Too Much Fun
    Large, stately mansions were leased to several responsible types who threw parties requiring dress attire and propriety.
  • The project that seeks to develop over the site of City People's has been delayed for a number of important reasons.
  • EDITORIAL: Our brutal year
    By show of hands, who is just absolutely relieved it’s about to be 2017?
  • It’s the season for gift giving, resolutions, and New Year's wishes. Here’s our political wish list for 2017 — presents we'd like to see under every Seattle resident’s tree.
  • Our divisive garments

    How many of us were told it wasn’t polite to discuss politics in mixed company? I would guess the answer is “a lot.”

    Of course, the important phrase in that rule was “mixed company."

  • Seattle by Night: Keep it on the down-low
    If First Avenue was so bad, why did all the young ladies look like they felt quite comfortable there? Why was it so crowded? We had heard of ladies of the night but we liked to think of them more as friends of the serviceman.  
  • The election of Donald Trump as president, and control of all three branches of government by radical Republicans, will drastically impact the numerous urgent social and political crises brought about by Seattle’s unprecedented economic growth.
  • After disaster's struck
    Well. Not too many people around here saw THAT ONE coming.
  • Reviving an analog book for a digital age
    I just reissued a big book, “LOSER: The Real Seattle Music Story,” about the ‘80s-’90s Seattle rock scene. But resurrecting a large and complicated book from the dark ages of 1995 can be a Herculean task.
  • A budget to benefit all?
    It’s that time of year when the City Council decides on the mayor’s proposed budget for the coming year. Owing to good economic times, Mayor Ed Murray has proposed a general fund budget of $1.2 billion — $300 million above what was available for city programs in 2015. A careful look it, however, shows it to be business as usual.
  • Guest Editorial: 'Two-second delay' at City People's site is a mile of nonsense
    This site will be developed, along with a myriad of other projects around the city. But let’s see that our neighborhood is developed with integrity.
  • Time to tell Congress: 'You're fired!'
    The president can use the bully pulpit to try and sway public opinion, or veto power to stop bad legislation in its tracks, but the real power to shape fiscal and social policy rests with the House of Representatives and the Senate.
