    In order to broaden their appeal, leaders of the Neighborhood Safety Alliance recently formed Speak Out Seattle (SOS), a new coalition of Seattle “residents, business owners and community groups,” to fight legalizing homeless camping, oppose legalized drug-consumption and treatment sites, and demand as many as 300 new police officers by the end of the year.
  • The safety of enemies
    Mayor Murray's dramatic declaration that he will sue the federal government for any information they don't hand over about President Trump's immigration orders sounds good -- but it's the legal equivalent of promising to check out a library book.
  • 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

    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.
  • Marching against Trump won't be enough
    In the coming days, local as well as national and international news will be filled with news of Donald Trump's inauguration, his and the Republican-led Congress's efforts to dismantle, well, whatever they can, and the public's response to it.
  • EDITORIAL: Our brutal year
    By show of hands, who is just absolutely relieved it’s about to be 2017?
  • After a year in which "fake news" became a thing and a "reality" TV star became president, we can only hope it gets better. 

  • Our political wish list
    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.
