Point Austin: Stop Me If You've Heard This One
Can the mayor persuade Austin voters this is a real city?
News Column  February 25, 2011, by Michael King
"...All this said, there is no reason to feel confident that a change the mayor and the whole council are now said to support – and one that the Chronicle has regularly endorsed – has any better chance of passing this time than it did the last six. In late 2007, when I asked the Charter Revision Committee chair, Mayor Emeritus Gus Garcia, how the latest effort was going, he said Public Apathy seemed to be winning the day – five public meetings had elicited only seven unique witnesses..."

Point Austin: Legitimate Public Concern
The Keller prosecution is an enduring stain on Austin's honor and sense of justice
News Column  March 27, 2009, by Michael King
"...Rather than provide the public document, city attorneys requested an advisory opinion from the state attor­ney general, whose office responded that the 17-year-old material could be withheld as "private" ("highly intimate and embarrassing") and "not of legitimate concern to the public." That opinion was wrong on both the facts and the law, but the city attorneys relied on it and convinced a judge to support their discretion. Thanks to the Chronicle's attorney, Pete Kennedy of Graves Dougherty, the 3rd Court of Appeals found the arguments of the city, the A.G., and the hearing judge unpersuasive and ordered the report released..."

The resulting document is not only an autobiography; it is a gentle attempt to recover Winik's loved ones from the ravages of time and memory while also serving as an account of late-20th century life told through the lens of an archive of death, an archive that forced Winik to revisit a number of deeply profound and intimate relationships...."

Is This Keeping Austin Weird?
Postmarks  June 18, 2007
"...Dear Editor, Speaking of "weird," did anyone else notice that the most prominent sponsor of the Keep Austin Weird Festival and 5K was AT&T? My understanding of the "Keep Austin Weird" concept was the support and promotion of local businesses like RunTex, Amy's, The Austin Chronicle, and Waterloo, etc. If that's the case, why was AT&T involved so conspicuously? Obviously it had a lot to do with their generous financial support, but doesn't it seem glaringly against the spirit of this event?..."

News Column  March 24, 2006, by Michael King
"...In any case, we will have lost the knowledge and input and voice of an experienced politician and citizen, who undoubtedly has much to add to the public discussion. "The '97 ordinance makes it very difficult to raise money independently of the PACs, and then the failure of the local media – including the Statesman, the Chronicle, and television – to really engage the campaign process early enough, make it difficult to get your message out without that money," Uribe told me..."
