Robert Nathan Allen Wants You to Eat Some Bugs
And you could, too – especially this Saturday in Zilker Park
DAILY Food  June 26, 2013, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...I keep wanting him to be some odd-looking geek who's totally into the idea of insects just for themselves, some eccentric yet lovable bug aficionado like those FBI entomologists at Quantico in Thomas Harris's Silence of the Lambs, and so that's the reason he's co-presenting the sixth annual Bug Festival in Zilker Park this weekend, that's why he's all about promoting insects as food...."

Robert Jensen Cancels Thanksgiving
DAILY News  November 21, 2006, by Wells Dunbar
"...But that's a whooooole 'nother post.) And when he's on, he's on. This passage is especially damning: "Thomas Jefferson -- president #3 and author of the Declaration of Independence, which refers to Indians as the "merciless Indian Savages" -- was known to romanticize Indians and their culture, but that didn't stop him in 1807 from writing to his secretary of war that in a coming conflict with certain tribes, "[W]e shall destroy all of them." As the genocide was winding down in the early 20th century, Theodore Roosevelt (president #26) defended the expansion of whites across the continent as an inevitable process "due solely to the power of the mighty civilized races which have not lost the fighting instinct, and which by their expansion are gradually bringing peace into the red wastes where the barbarian peoples of the world hold sway." Roosevelt also once said, "I don't go so far as to think that the only good Indians are dead Indians, but I believe nine out of ten are, and I shouldn't like to inquire too closely into the case of the tenth." Of course, the prevailing winds in the Dallas Blog comments section are as narrow minded as they are predictable..."

Dr. Robert Van Boven, the Whistleblower
Lakeway neurologist battles hospitals, officials, and the "culture of silence"
News Story  April 19, 2018, by Michael King
"...According to the sworn testimony (during the May 2017 SOAH hearing) of Casey Low, one of Van Boven's attorneys, in February of 2016 he'd been trying to schedule a hearing when one of LRMC's attorneys, Thomas Wat­kins, told him that his clients wanted the doctor to know that if he continued to pursue the lawsuit, "he would never work in this town again." A few days later, Van Boven and his attorney learned of the Tem­porary Status Restriction Hearing that would result in the long-delayed "emergency" restriction of Van Boven's practice to male patients only. Low testified that he later asked his counterpart if the earlier warning had referred to the TSRH, and Watkins told him yes...."

AISD Sends Signals on Future Budget Cuts
School closures and the redrawing of school boundaries eyed as potential ways to address $29 million deficit
News Story  November 15, 2018, by Austin Sanders
"...Task force tri-chair Robert Thomas noted his committee was charged to make "courageous" recommendations on how the district could save money, adding that "all of the easy decisions have been made" by past district leaders. That means the recommendations to be submitted by the task force could be politically fraught, but Thomas said the group agreed early on that its job was not to be popular, but to be honest: "We decided that tail is not going to wag this dog."..."

Film Review  March 4, 2000, by Marc Savlov
"...Schlesinger, whose lengthy career has given us some of the most inspired and powerful films ever made, from Midnight Cowboy to Marathon Man, proves more than up to the task of helming this distinctly modern tale of love, friendship, and American family mores. It says much about the director that he manages to keep a busy script (by Thomas Ropelewski) afloat as long as he does..."

AISD Prepares to Slice the Apple
School district battles its budget monsters
News Story  December 6, 2018, by Austin Sanders
"...One of the task force's tri-chairs, Robert Thomas, articulated the challenge facing the committee at a work session for the board of trustees on Nov. 12: "The easy cuts have been made, so the downside to serving on the BSTF [at] this time is that there are no easy decisions." Phrases like "no easy decisions" and "time to make hard choices" are gestures toward school closures and consolidations, impacts to teachers such as increasing class sizes, or redrawing attendance zones to shift students to less crowded campuses..."

The Never-Ending (Crime) Story
Although their case has hit a dead end, prosecutors of the yogurt shop murders say they're determined to find the 'unknown suspect' – and then to retry Michael Scott and Robert Springsteen
News Story  July 17, 2009, by Jordan Smith
"...From the beginning, the investigation into the murder of the four girls – Amy Ayers, 13; sisters Sarah and Jennifer Harbison, 15 and 17; and Eliza Thomas, 17 – was plagued by misfortune, mistakes, and missteps. Physical evidence was lost in the water used to put out the fire, for example, and police were unable to keep particular details about the crime scene – withheld facts that would help them find the killer or killers – from leaking out of the department..."

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
In this comedy sequel, the CG action moves to Washington, D.C., as the Smithsonian's exhibits are put into storage during a renovation.
Film Review  May 29, 2009, by Marc Savlov
"...Certainly it's nowhere near as transgressive or entertaining as Stiller's shaggy, half-over-the-ear haircut (which, frankly, deserves its own spin-off franchise). Director Levy and returning screenwriters Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon have moved the location from New York's American Museum of Natural History to D.C.'s Smithsonian, but virtually every other aspect of this sequel was touched on (manhandled, actually) in the original film..."

Film Review  February 14, 2003, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...In this new version, Australian director Philip Noyce (Rabbit-Proof Fence, Clear and Present Danger) and his ensemble hit just the right notes in telling this cautionary tale about the unwritten rules of engagement in the battle for the hearts, minds, and territories of the people of far-flung continents. Caine, in one of the best performances of his career, plays lackadaisical journalist Thomas Fowler, a past-his-prime foreign reporter for The London Times who has established a comfortable and effortless life for himself in Saigon..."

The Hitcher
This remake of Robert Harmon's original 1986 horror semiclassic serves as a primer in how not to generate suspense.

Film Review  January 26, 2007, by Marc Savlov
"...(It certainly didn't hurt matters that Harmon cast the terminally fearless Rutger Hauer in the title role.) When teen hottie couple Jim (Knighton, in the original's C. Thomas Howell role) and Grace (Bush) kindly but foolishly offer a lift to roadside mystery vagabond John Ryder (Bean doing Rutger Hauer doing Satan), their spring break bacchanal ricochets into the preposterously overblown (and for a Michael Bay-produced film, that's saying a lot)..."

A Career Hooligan Looks Back, But Mostly Forward
Robert Rodriguez on a lifetime of innovation and the movie, 'El Mariachi,' that started it all
Screens Story  August 24, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...The parallels between Troublemaker's self-contained, self-sustaining digital world and the fledgling indie United Artists Corporation are striking, but the historical echoes of what Rodriguez is doing go back even further, to the birth of filmmaking as we know it, when pioneering inventors and artists like the Lumière Brothers, Georges Méliès, and Thomas Edison literally made it up as they went along...."

Crafting the Song
Austin theatre actor Robert Fisher has the heart of a rock & roller, the work ethic of a medieval craftsman, and the style of a Bob Fosse. Either he's in the wrong business or he is, as playwright Kirk Lynn calls him, "a wonder."
Arts Story  March 16, 2001, by C. Denby Swanson
"...But his performance as a harlequin-like combination of Mark Twain and Thomas Edison in the Rude Mechanicals' just-closed production, Requiem for Tesla, pretty much blows that gig. Split down the middle, a black suit and slicked-down hair for Edison and a white suit, mustache, and frizzy mane for Twain, he locks his jaw onto the Rude Mechs' use of spectacle and gives it a glorious bulldog shake..."
