Me, with my son, as he gazes thoughtfully into the mountainous distance.

Rainier Valley News represents one man’s somewhat modest attempt at bringing news satire to the Greater Seattle Area and its people.

Why, oh, why?

The answer is simple: because everyone needs a good chuckle. Our broken world is rife with unhappy stories about unhappy people. It’s important to push back against that.

And that’s what I’m here trying to do.

It’s why I’m passionate about writing serious-sounding articles on absurd-sounding topics.

So, put your feet up on the coffee table (no shoes, please), grab a tablet, and take a look around.
