News Story  June 21, 1996, by Roseana Auten
"..."And we wanted somebody to work with Ronee, and find out what happened to Ronee." The Larivees didn't wait for Prudential's next move; Ronee's well-being was too fragile. Although again, it was not their "choice" to do so, the Larivees found another, female therapist for Ronee -- out-of-network. Determining "Medical Necessity" Prudential does provide for a three-level process of appeals when "members" have grievances (although on January 1, 1996, the company amended this policy to only two appeals). Sheri, rocketing between despondency and outrage, has already exhausted all three of her appeals -- during which, she says, Prudential mangled many of the facts of her case..."

Film Review  February 18, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...With his black trenchcoat and jaded, doom-centric mien, he pulls it off, capturing, however improbably, the sheer, soulless exhaustion of a man who has nothing left to lose and everything to gain. Of course, he’s no longer playing in punk rock band Mucous Membrane, as Alan Moore would have it, but all in all it’s a fair trade-off..."

Film Review  September 11, 1998, by Hollis Chacona
"...She is almost always somebody else's mother, but she is so full of warmth and kindness and of such a generous nature she has plenty of mothering to share.

"...At the age of 17, he joined Monks' Night Out, a leading local troupe in the Nineties, and two years later joined Only 90% Effective, the first gang of improvisers launched at the University of Texas. The group's shift to more scripted work and Heilbron's focus on stand-up led him away from improv and Austin for several years, but since returning in 2010, he's found a base at the Institution Theater, where he's written the hit Fuck It's Hot sketch shows, guested with Girls Girls Girls during a Boys of Summer run, and begun teaching "Stand-Up for Improvisers." He also fronts the emo puppet band Fragile Rock and produces the Stand Up Empire TV program...."
