  • The Two Bells Bar and Grill has been the epicenter of a certain cozy, unpretentious, yet arty subculture for more than three decades.
  • CARTOON: Southern Nights
    Milt Priggee is an award-winning syndicated cartoonist. His work can be found at miltpriggee.com.
  • Kshama Sawant and her Socialist Alternative movement have a laudable plan to expand renters’ rights. 
  • In late June, the City of Seattle’s Human Services Department (HSD) released two important, seemingly contradictory documents that capture perfectly the destructive assumptions behind the city’s new, supposedly data-driven approach to our city’s homelessness pandemic. 
  • This is a critical election for the future of our city. Ballots are mailed June 12th for the August 1st primary, although at this time of year elections are probably far from your mind. 
  • A few years ago, I wrote something comparing and contrasting the Fremont Solstice Parade and the Seattle Pride Parade. 

  • New editor Ryan Murray says hello and thanks his predecessor.
  • While the city of Seattle indeed is growing up with a record increase in jobs, housing, and population (now over 700,000 and leading the nation in residential growth, according to a recent Seattle Times story), Kolko communicates a false notion that somehow we here in the Northwest have overcome sprawl and its trappings (longer commutes, automobile-dependency, and increased carbon emissions). Nothing could be further from the truth. 
  • This month we remember the Cafe Racer shooting, five years (and so many other needless tragedies) later.
  • In April, Bertha, the world’s largest boring machine, finally broke through just west of Aurora, completing a 1.7-mile underground journey. However, the tunnel itself won’t be finished until 2019 -- four years from its original 2015 completion date.  

  • Revisiting the Park: Making bread (and losing it) on the old delivery route
    The mid-20th Century  was a time for a new business enterprise to start up with little or no overhead, tax free.  It was a green company with few requirements--perhaps a 1927 Issue 45 Cal—it was a cash removal company called a Holdup!
  • Outside City Hall: The bullies Nextdoor
    Nextdoor is an online bulletin board where residents may post anything about their neighborhood:  lost cats and dogs, things they’re giving away or selling, upcoming events — or perhaps a post about criminal activity or something else amiss in their community.
  • A City on a Hill: Je t'aime, Seattle!
    The French have decided they love Seattle, and not just our pastoral fish-throwin’ and whale-watchin’ tourist draws. They love our arts scene.
  • Revisiting the Park: The art of the dance
    We — the almost-legal-agers — often met in one of the three taverns in Madison Park after a hard day’s work.
  • Our once quaint little fishing village, so used to being treated as America's "forgotten corner," has suddenly become the epicenter for defense of American freedom and democracy; the champion of an all-fronts war to pull this nation back from insanity, and forward into a better future.
  • I wholeheartedly support the decision to divest from Wells Fargo by the city council! 
  • Where is global warming when we need it? I do look forward to the first day of spring, balmy weather, and flowers in bloom.
  • This screwed up “world-class city” (or is it “no-class city?”) was lovely and accessible when I enrolled in the University of Washington School of Art in 1949.
  • LETTER: 100 Women Who Care thank neighbors in Madison Park
    On Feb. 1, 100 Women Who Care Greater Seattle met at Pyramid Alehouse and chose the Pink Daisy Project to receive our donation. With Madison Park neighbors' participation, it was our largest donation to date, $4,500. What a fun evening!
