You can tell a lot about newspapers by what they don't cover
News Column  April 11, 2008, by Michael King
"...Just for fun, I searched the major Texas daily newspapers (Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio, El Paso) for the last month to see how they compared to the overall national media for the stories Greenwald had searched. That small a sample is a little inconclusive (a search through all Texas papers would be more lamentable), but it's still roughly comparable:..."

How New Plays Are Developed in Austin
Arts Story  October 18, 1996, by Brett Holloway-Reeves
"...The process for an over-the-top musical like Branson or Bust (with 12 characters, a five-piece band, mobile props, and a projection sequence) may be very different from that for a one-man historical drama like The Confessions of David Crockett, which Remembrance Through the Performing Arts has been nurturing along for some months now. It so happens that these two new plays are both receiving full productions on Austin stages this month, and a look at each is instructive in what can be involved in new play development...."

Looking beyond the WTP4 controversy
News Column  October 23, 2009, by Wells Dunbar
"...Surely, with proponents pointing to water-tight examples like San Antonio, more could be done on the conservation front. To that end, the three votes likely against the plant – Laura Morrison, Chris Riley, and Bill Spelman – have called for creating an "Integrated Water Management Plan" with the goal "to position Austin as a national leader in water conservation by 2020." Moreover, on WTP4's cost – which they point out may raise water rates by as much as 15% – the anti- bloc proposes a resolution to ameliorate the hike for the water utility's low-income users...."

Point Austin: Future in the Balance
Local Prop. 1 proponents claim a fighting chance
News Column  October 2, 2014, by Michael King
"...I have to admit I was surprised last week when I was handed initial poll numbers by the Let's Go Austin folks, indicating that their mid-September survey on the Novem­ber transportation bond – local bond Proposition 1, for rail and road projects – garnered 52% support for the proposition, to 43% opposed. The margin of error (+/-4.4%) is enough to collapse those numbers into a virtual tie, but according to the pollsters (Greenberg Quinlan Ros­ner Research), the survey reflects a citywide sample of 500 likely voters, and support among "progressives" (69%) and Dem­ocrats (61%) was sufficient to override opposition from Republicans and independents..."

Located right beside the grand slash of concrete that is Highway 183 N., GAMA is one island of that great expanse of industrialized real estate devoted primarily to the temporary storage of automobiles: one sprawling parking lot after another, accessible only by car, and otherwise useless...."

As concrete Christmas arrives, who's got the last laugh now?
News Column  December 24, 2004, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...This development has driven other I-35 cities batshit, or at least into a coalition to aggressively lobby against the corridor. How that's going to affect Austin remains to be seen, because technically State Highway 130 will be our leg of the corridor, and it's already being built by a consortium led by Fluor (who came in last in the three-way race for this initial TTC-35 contract), and everyone strenuously denies that SH 130's toll-road needs will goad TxDOT into shelving its I-35 plans through Central Austin..."

"...Once an instance of Prince’s keen humor, the line “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life” rang like space-age gospel in Austin. The Revolution then launched Purple Rain triptych “Let’s Go Crazy,” “When Doves Cry,” and “Purple Rain.” Likewise, “Listen to my body tonight,” a line from “1999,” bottled Prince’s other religion – outrageous sexuality..."

Doug Dorst puts the S. in 'Ship of Theseus' with this JJ Abrams Collaboration
The author presents his new literary creation at BookPeople tonight
DAILY Books  December 9, 2013, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...That book is S., a many-layered, story-within-a-story-surrounded-by-footnotes-and-marginalia that progresses like something Poe and Borges might have concocted after being enchanted by Griffin and Sabine, and it was sparked by an idea from JJ Abrams. Abrams is, of course, that producer-director whose various media franchises (Lost, Cloverfield, Star Trek, the next cinematic chapter of the Star Wars mythos) can be polarizing, opinionwise, but about whom there's general agreement on at least one thing: Choosing to team up with the Austin-based Dorst to create this newest work was one hell of a smart move...."

Suzan-Lori Parks isn't coasting, 'cause she's still listening
Arts Story  May 12, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...Calling Suzan-Lori Parks' visit to Austin this week a homecoming may be overstating the case, but the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Topdog/Underdog did call Texas home for a time in her youth, and the state looms large in her life. Her memories of it, particularly the part of West Texas where she spent a few years while her father was stationed in Vietnam, led her to make it the setting for her 2003 novel Getting Mother's Body, in which a poor and pregnant teenager sets out to dig up her mother's grave and retrieve the jewelry she was buried with before a supermarket is built on the spot..."

It's a safe bet as well that every show Johnson's ever played in Austin is on those shelves. There's little doubt of the genius encrypted on those tapes or that the personally modest but musically vain Johnson will ever release anything on them to his adoring public...."

"...As it stands, the agenda is set: We banned 'em over the aquifer, and we're gonna make them pretty with new design standards, so what else can we do, the city asks? Look at our study! It says the Wal-Marts and Home Depots don't really compete with small local indie businesses, and it says we need to approve 'em to maintain our share of the regional retail market and keep pulling in sales tax revenue. Y'know, as long as we keep doing the Keep Austin Weird thing, all will be rosy..."
