Public Notice: A Week of Peace
One final tidbit for the year
News Column  December 23, 2015, by Nick Barbaro
"...This Christmas Eve, as Austinites gather 'round the electronic fireplace (Fireplace for Your Home, season 1, available on Netflix), we can be thankful, every one, that this is one Thursday evening when there is no City Council meeting. The disturbance of the peace that was last Thurs­day's meeting is covered amply elsewhere (see "Point Austin," "Leave No Fingerprints," and "Uber and Lyft Go to City Hall"), there is mercifully little public process going on over the next 10 days (see "Civics 101"), and next week is the Chronicle's annual Top 10s of the Year issue..."

"...Then there's America Is Still the Place, which recounts the 1971 San Francisco Bay oil spill – in which 800,000 gallons of crude were unleashed on the ocean after two oil tankers collided – through the eyes of Charlie Walker, whose efforts to clean up Stinson Bay are impeded by systemic racism and corruption. If that sounds a bit dry, let's just say that Mike Colter (cast as Luke Cage in the upcoming Marvel/Netflix TV series) oozes charisma, and the film leans more toward tall tale than clinical indictment...."
