Point Austin: We Won!
Celebrating 'the fierce urgency of now'
News Column November 7, 2008, by Michael King
"...I guess I should at least climb out as far on a limb as Garry Trudeau and Doonesbury and personally but officially declare Barack Obama the winner of the presidential race. After obsessively reviewing the daily polls, consulting my few national sources, and longing to be in Grant Park, on Chicago's Michigan Ave.,* with the rest of the Obamamaniacs celebrating the victory on Tuesday night, I feel pretty damn confident in declaring that our long national nightmare is over, that Obama will win easily – and that I haven't jinxed anything because the Chronicle won't go to press until Wednesday evening...."

Point Austin: What's Next?
A day or two for cheering, and then back to work
News Column November 10, 2006, by Michael King
"...A few observers, Chronicle readers among them, have instead described Friedman as the Ralph Nader of this campaign because his 12% of the overall vote presumably could have made the difference for Democrat Chris Bell, who ended with a respectable 30% to Perry's 39%. Alas, that presumes that a solid three-fourths of Friedman's voters were disaffected Dems, a real stretch when you consider that beyond biodiesel and casinos, Kinky effectively ran a budget-slashing, border-militarizing, Republican-lite campaign...."
Austin on Authorship
Arts Story March 31, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...In connection with this story, the Chronicle sought out the views of some Austinites on the authorship debate.

In the wake of the Times report (worth rereading in full, along with Mary Tuma's Chronicle stories), Sanchez has moved to divest of some of these properties while also vowing to continue expanding the organization...."
