I first crossed paths with Mr. John Hathaway (aka The New Takhoman) back when Todd Matthews ran this story [The-Pen-is] Mightier than Swords in the Tacoma Daily Index profiling local Tacoma Political Cartoonists. After reading Todd's article I immediately subscribed to Mr. Hathaway's Email Newsletter and I highly recommend you do the same without haste! Happily, your in-box will be filled daily with curmudgeonly gripes keeping you informed on Tacoma things you would otherwise be completely oblivious to.

Like our ex-chief of police being a homicidal maniac! The TNT wouldn't touch The Brame story with a double insulated ten foot pole till Hathaway found out about it.  But Tacoma has learned it's lessons and everything old is new again.

To learn more about this dusty jewel citizen agitator, I recommend this waxing Melon PODCAST conducted by our friend Electric Elliot. Excelsior!

Does me good to know John is getting his health insurance from the city of Tacoma, that must stick in their craw.

I think I met this guy a few years back. Didn't he run a bowling alley?

Yeah Lincoln Lanes! I believe he was a bar tender there.

I think I loaned him some of my pulp magazines once.

ABSOLUTELY FREE AND NEW!

Electric Elliot and Chris Van Vechten speak with the New Takhoman's John Hathaway about Tacoma (crazy Dale Washam, Term Limits, Martin Luther King Housing Authority Pyramid Scheme, and Tacoma City Council) in this new podcast segment: The Rotten Melon.

RR Commentary: This is my favorite KUPS The Melon podcast EVER. well... Their old traveller episode would be a close second.

@RR_Anderson I have not heard from Mr. Hathaway since last Friday, but that doesn't really mean anything.
