AISD's 'Movie of the Week'

RECEIVED Tue., June 27, 2006

Dear Editor,
    I was impressed by the way Michael May covered the "much-ado" story of Austin High art teacher Tamara Hoover in your June 23 issue [“Hoover: Caught in the Flash,” News]. Thank goodness Mr. May brought revealing insights to the subject matter. If only the other paper's writers could have such moxie. This is frickin' Austin for cryin' out loud! Home of Hippie Hollow, where even allegedly one of our high ranking city officials once sunbathed on a regular basis. They didn't run them out of town. They help run the town now.
    Could this whole hullabaloo simply be due to some closed-minders being jealous of a teacher who is leading a life of artistic expression?
    She is not afraid to show it. Thank you Mr. May for peeling the layers in this whole "movie of the week" wannabe mess. And to Ms. Hoover and Danger, dammit, you go girls. Do not let them break your creative spirit. Turn a negative into a positive and show those scant few just how incredibly foolish they are.
