The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle

"...That loud buzzing sound you hear isn't the City Council shredding another $1.4 million of your money to buy the Austin Police Department an expensive new toy. It is the toy: a shiny new police helicopter, fully equipped with high-powered lighting, a state-of-the-art radio system, and Forward Looking Infrared Radar, or FLIR, best known for its use by the FBI in the 1993 siege on the Branch Davidians' Waco compound...."

Dick Price Reviewed
Music Story  April 6, 2001, by Margaret Moser
"...Like the Austin Lounge Lizards' lone cousin, Price's wry compositions alternately skewer and praise pop culture with little more than a keyboard for accompaniment. Songs like "I Was a Go-Go Boy for the FBI," "Tiny Little Man," and "The Midnight Ride of Paula Revere" were staples of Price's Eighties repertoire and Nineties Dial-a-Tune service, as was the tune that's arguably his most famous, "Hillbillies in a Haunted House." Even better news, "Hillbillies" is one of 16 songs on Dick Price's CD debut, Dick Price's Theatre of Cruelty..."

Salon Editor David Talbot and Editor Michael Hirschorn have been on the media frontline throughout their careers. And both are well-versed in the pitfalls of providing a product -- online content -- that, so far at least, has few willing buyers. But the two have taken different approaches to achieving profitability on the Web.

"...And we had a reporter -- Murray Waas -- who came to us with a lot of stories, which we ran, about the Starr investigation." In fact, Salon may have made an impact on the Starr report. "An FBI source close to Starr's office told us that when Starr presented his report, he excluded the Whitewater information because Salon had already discredited the sources of it," Talbot says...."

Dick Holland assesses two Texas journalists, Gary Cartwright and Jan Reid, whose new collections of articles possess a cautionary wisdom, the kind you acquire when you court danger and danger provides you with a keen view of what lies beyond.
Books Story  February 23, 2001, by Dick Holland
"...The remainder of Cartwright's homage to Dallas is made up of compelling pieces on Dallas Black Power ("The Bad Brother"), on the Dallas Police Department's handling of the Randall Adams case (Adams was the subject of Errol Morris' documentary "The Thin Blue Line"), a portrait of Dallas gambler Benny Binion and his family, and "I Was Mandarin," an investigation of how Cartwright was led to the family of a Dallas policeman who had confessed to them that he had been a shooter from the grassy knoll on assassination day.

"...Written by Allen Rucker, who wrote the TV documentary Family Values: The Mob and the Movies and co-authored The History of White People in America with Martin Mull, this Sopranos book curiously (and with great skill) manages to maintain the fiction of the series. Unlike the Buffy books, which deal with Buffy as fiction, the Sopranos book carefully pieces together the Sopranos' back story with "interviews" with friends, relatives, and unnamed FBI agents doing surveillance on the Sopranos family..."

Safe Delivery
Books Review  December 1, 2000, by Mark Busby
"...The complications of the plot seem murky on reflection. Why would Mexican assassins set up their political enemies to be murdered in the United States, when they could more easily do so in the comfort of their home country? And in a novel where most of the secondary characters such as Vincent's father, Palo, and Parr's FBI pal, Ollie Nordmarken, are memorably presented, the revolutionary patsy, Angel Martinez, even with his tag name, is too thin to carry the emotional weight he needs to shoulder...."

"...The caption has her saying, "Isn't it tragic enough without us gossiping about it under the stars?" It seems too important a historical revelation to not get right. Nevertheless, Taraborrelli's bibliography and source notes are a scrupulous account of his research, and he has done a phenomenal amount of work in documenting for all future researchers the FBI file numbers that pertain to the Kennedys -- a previously unaccomplished feat that will save every future Kennedy chronicler an enormous amount of time and money..."

Promoting The Independent, Garofalo said, "The ones you do for next to nothing [financially] are the ones you believe in." She expressed admiration for both Romy and Michele's High School Reunion ("I thought it was hilarious") and Clay Pigeons, a noirish thriller she took part in because her role as an FBI agent was originally intended for a man ("I was determined to try to make a difference in that genre")..."
