Seattle's head tax is the law of the municipal land now. What do local businesses think? Bill Radke and KUOW reporter Carolyn Adolph sat down with Todd Biesold, owner and CFO of Merlino Foods, for a perspective.

Six years ago, former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis sat down and began writing a letter in answer a deceptively simple question: why so much inequality?

It's called Upon Further Review, and it gave him a unique look at things like Seattle's thwarted superbowl ambitions and the (hopefully temporary) demise of Robinson Canó's hand.
