What's 'The Austin Chronicle'?

RECEIVED Tue., May 23, 2006

To the editor,
    Dateline 2020. "Hey Pops! This is Mindy. I e-texted you about that story for my blog.” "Mindy who?” "About the salamander.” "Oh! Mindy.” "Tell me what you can remember, Pops.” "Well ... I guess we could'a run a better campaign – you know, more slicker. It ain't easy though, makin' a hero out'a a salamander. Maybe some tights and a cape, or maybe some cool sunglasses and a tie-dye bandana – you know, keepin' it weird. But I gotta admit it: those rascals had it in for the little amphibian; and that my enemy is the enemy of my friend crap really works. I guess I was just living in the past anyway, remembering when I used to play in the creeks and the brooks with the tadpoles and the frogs and the turtles.” "Hey Pops! I've seen pictures of those things, I'll slap a few up with the story.” "Well I guess that endorsement from The Austin Chronicle really sunk our rowboat.” "Hey Pops! What's that?”
   "What's what, Mindy?” "What's The Austin Chronicle?”
