Jesus Is Coming
The video mailed across the state, the Christian film that found an audience in Austin, and other stories of evangelicals using film to spread the word
Screens Story  April 27, 2001, by Sarah Hepola
"...What might be surprising (it was to Hollywood, anyway) was that Christians could wage a mass media campaign so invisible to the rest of us -- on the radio station at the far end of our dial, on the television channel we occasionally flip past, the churches we pass on our way to work, and on the Web sites we have probably never, ever seen. By doing so, evangelicals turned The Omega Code -- by all accounts a clunky failure of a techno-thriller -- into a marketing triumph...."

"...A grocery clerk is a grocery clerk, right? Well, sure, unless you've fumbled your way through a trainee at the chain store or been grilled on what you are buying, and does it taste good?

Plus she looks kinda like Sixties Cher in all the good ways...."

Take Out the Heat
Sure, complaining about the heat only makes it worse. A long string of 100 degree days presents an unsolvable problem but it just so happens that there's one summer problem we can solve. What to do about dinner on a day when the ambient blast furnace is stuck in the triple digits and operating any appliance hotter than a microwave is a sure sign of madness? Where to go, what to buy, how to put a tasty meal on the table without working up a sweat?

Cut and Dried: A Primer
The Central Texas meat market roundup
Food Story  January 30, 2004
"...Independent Meat Markets These companies are our local stalwarts of the old-style butcher shops, the kind of shops that used to be in every neighborhood before the advent of the supermarket, which brought us the convenience of one-stop shopping, later hours, slightly cheaper pricing, and mediocrity of product.
