Austin Gets Its VW Payout
It took some doing, but Austin will see $16 million from Volkswagen AG's emissions control scandal fallout
News Story  November 22, 2018, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...Many thought that Texas would turn around and parcel the air-quality funds out to different regions in the same manner, but this was not required by the terms of the settlement. The state's first plan for using the VW money instead allocated the funds to air quality regions with the greatest need – which didn't include Austin, even though our metro area has more of the affected cars (per capita) than anywhere else in Texas..."

Austin Powers in Goldmember
Like a patient too long under laughing gas, the latest installment in the Austin Powers series has stopped making much sense at all, but it sure gets its giggle on,...
Film Review  July 26, 2002, by Kimberley Jones
"...(And Myers clearly gets a kick out of mocking 69's obvious inspiration, Studio 54, and its flamboyant overlord Steve Rubell, who Myers ably portrayed in 54, his only dramatic role to date.) To put his evil plan into action, Goldmember time-travels to the present, with Powers' spy dad, Nigel Powers (Caine), nabbed as bait to lure in Austin, now in league with soul sister Foxxy Cleopatra (Knowles). None of this really matters (and a good half of it is completely incomprehensible); any plot development is just an occasion around which to construct skits for Myers..."

Dark Times in Austin With Noir City
The czar of noir Eddie Muller on Walter White and classic dread
DAILY Screens  February 16, 2014, by Richard Whittaker
"...So what is a true noir? To Muller, it's another case of "you know it when you see it." "It's a certain story where the reader can empathize with characters who are bad, who are doing something that's bad." It's not just crime stories: He sees the style spilling over into westerns, court room dramas, and even the borderline surrealist. While the exact timing of classic noir is hazy around the edges, like a drunk's recollection after an all-night bender, for him the core era runs from 1944 to 1952..."

Neither of those things is within CAMPO's purview; transit is up to the voters in November, and land use is up to the city councils and county commissioners...."
