Set in an unnamed town on the Jersey shore sometime in the Fifties, Big Night centers on the plight of two Italian immigrant brothers, Primo and Secondo, who are struggling to keep the doors of their little restaurant open. The problem is one of vulgar American tastes: While the flashy Italian eatery around the corner does booming business serving transatlantic bastardizations like spaghetti and meatballs, the brothers' trattoria offers a bill of fare faithful to their native land's culinary traditions..."

Activist groups beg to differ with the city's big-box report
News Story  October 15, 2004, by Mike Clark-Madison

That review, released last week, challenges Hockenyos' report, which argued that "there appears to be relatively little direct competition between big boxes and local retailers"; said little about the public costs of big-box development; claimed (mistakenly) that Austin was rapidly losing sales tax to the suburbs; and recommended (in the current review's words) that "the city's principal concern should be establishing design standards for a subset of big box retailers."..."

Music Story  August 25, 2016, by Jim Caligiuri
"...Transatlanticana, the new album from guitarist Bill Kirchen and keyboardist Austin de Lone, closes with a red-blooded version of Bob Dylan's "The Times They Are A-Changin'." It's an unexpected, seemingly political turn after a disc of good-natured country and rockabilly seasoned with semi-sweet R&B. Kirchen, 68, admits that his music – going back to the early Seventies with the riotous Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen – never had a civic side...."

Cellular Phone Bill Is Just Another Government Power Grab
Postmarks  January 12, 2009
"...Dear Editor, The cellular-phone ban is yet another Big Brother control grab (read: seat belt, DWI, insurance check) that criminalizes social behavior and creates yet another revenue stream for law enforcement growth in a slowed economy and funnels mass amounts of money into the state government and its lobbying opportunists' coffers. Like Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the National Safety Council wants to flex its self-righteous conservative muscle and exert more social control on a public tired of stolen freedoms. I tried to do a simple search for who is sponsoring this bill on and to find who is the money behind such a surreptitious bill, but there is no info – it may be one of those "buried" riders inside another bill..."

News Story  March 1, 2007, by Amy Smith
"...Perry also chatted up his Trans Texas Corridor project then taking shape, "with the private sector willing to expend $7.2 billion up front without asking for one dime in state money for construction." By the end of the regular session, and three special sessions that followed, Perry was still talking tough on school reform while the school-funding matter went unresolved. To finally get the job done and keep his political career intact, Perry summoned former comptroller and Democratic rival John Sharp and put him in charge of crafting a new franchise-tax bill and recruiting support from enough Democratic legislators to add some bipartisan flair to its passage...."
