"...Back Street D: David Miller (1961); with Susan Hayward, John Gavin, Reginald Gardiner, Natalie Schaefer. A typically lush Ross Hunter/Fanny Hurst gusher with Miss Hayward as Rae Smith, an aspiring young fashion designer who keeps coincidentally running into Captain Paul Saxon, played by the Ross Hunter staple, Gavin, also known as the poor man's Rock Hudson.

"...Fresh from the What Does Thom Yorke Have to Say About This?

"...So why would Peerman implore recipients of her e-mail to contact council members before 5pm Thursday? Explained AMD spokesman Travis Bullard: "It was important for the council to hear from AMD supporters before Thanksgiving simply because they are going to break for a couple of weeks, and we know that they are receiving misinformation from [the Save Our Springs Alliance] about AMD." The Alliance is part of a coalition of people and groups opposed to AMD's move to an area from which other major employers have steered clear, out of respect for the community's eco values and, more importantly from a PR perspective, to avoid negative campaigns like this one. Amy Smith..."

"...In response to your December 28 article titled "CPS: Protecting Children or Destroying Families" by Jordan Smith, I would like to outline the process by which Child Protective Services fulfills its responsibility for the protection of children of Texas.
