Labor Intensive
John Fiege on 'Mississippi Chicken' and Anne Lewis on 'Morristown'
Screens Story  October 5, 2007, by Spencer Parsons
"...That kind of ground-level storytelling in the cinema verité mode also distinguishes the superficially similar Mississippi Chicken – both films concern immigration and poultry processing in the South – but the ultimate effects couldn't be more different. Where Lewis' clean and straightforward videography builds a structural narrative switching between Tennessee and Mexico to chart a successful drive toward labor organizing, first-time feature director John Fiege's textural and nostalgic Super-8 focuses his effort on gritty appreciation of milieu and moment..."

Anthrax in Texas (The Good Kind)
Will San Antonio be the new home to Homeland Security's new bioterrorism research facility?
DAILY News  July 12, 2007, by Richard Whittaker
"... The Texas Research Park in San Antonio, promoted by the Texas Biological and Agro-Defense Consortium, got through to the next round to select a site for the National Bio and Agro-Defense Facility (NBAF). These labs, run by the Department of Homeland Security, will research preventing animal diseases, especially "high-consequence biological threats involving human, zoonotic (i.e., transmitted from animals to humans), and foreign animal diseases." Basically, that means ways to tackle biowarfare, either through direct threats to people, or indirect threats like, say, wiping out every chicken through a genetically modified virus...."

Music Story  July 4, 2003, by Margaret Moser
"...Charles Ernest Gildon, "or maybe it was Ernest Charles Gildon, I'm not sure," was Sugar Bear's uncle, a man with a glad eye for a dollar who was in the right place at the right time. In 1960 he bought the after-hours joint called Cheryl Ann's and renamed it Ernie's Chicken Shack and would often continue the night's music from the Playhouse into the morning's wee hours..."

Pages That Rock
Books Story  March 14, 1997
"...More troubling is Goodman's righteous damnation of the "product" -- where despite his even tone in the historical portions he nonetheless manages to not so subtly cry "sell-out" each time his favorite artists disappoint him. But if rock & roll has truly become a "product," isn't it a chicken-and-egg scenario as to who's responsible -- the industry's proposal of bottom line economics, or the musicians' willingness to commercially compromise themselves? Without each other, neither the artists or industry exist as profitable entities, and less intelligent writers than Goodman have wisely stayed clear of that unanswerable question -- and instead, like Fredric Dannen's Hit Men, focused primarily on analyzing only a select piece of the equation...."
