A Great Big Bundle of Rail and Roads
Council moves transportation bonds toward a November vote
News Story  August 7, 2014, by Mac McCann
"...Not everyone agrees. Public transit advocates Scott Morris and Lyndon Henry, who strongly oppose this particular plan, issued a press release in late June denouncing how the LPA had been "hastily bundled with hundreds of millions of dollars of highway projects to increase support and private funding for the rail's planned political campaign." They said they "oppose combining an urban rail decision with unrelated highway infrastructure that would be otherwise unneeded with a good rail plan."..."

Project Connect Accelerates
As decisions near, controversy dogs urban rail plan
News Story  June 12, 2014, by Mac McCann and Michael King
"...Our Rail, which in the past has suggested petitioning a counter-option onto the ballot, recently declared (via Twitter), "We will OPPOSE a Project Connect ballot measure containing ANY investment that threatens the development of urban rail on Guad-North Lamar." To Our Rail Treasurer Scott Morris, "It doesn't matter what the phasing is, because the phasing is simply the menu for what will be served to the voters, and we want the real question addressed, which is: Is this train going to carry anybody?" Our Rail has also criticized the East Riverside corridor as inadequately "supported with appropriate data." (For more on the opposition, see "Dissenting Voices," p.23.)..."

Project Connect: Phases and Stages
Advisory group gets closer to official Council recommendation
News Story  April 4, 2014, by Mac McCann
"...The argument remains increasingly polarized, as reflected in the recent creation of a political action committee – "Our Rail" – formed to oppose any Highland rail route, and perhaps to place a charter amendment on the November ballot to require a Lamar/Guadalupe route. Scott Morris, listed as treasurer for the Our Rail PAC, said the group has made no certain decision on a charter petition, but that such an amendment would "direct the city build a minimum operable segment of light rail in the Guadalupe-North Lamar corridor before other corridors."..."

Project Connect Draws a Line
Group makes official recommendation to Mayor Leffingwell
News Story  November 22, 2013, by Mac McCann
"...Not all transit advocates welcomed the decision. Scott Morris of the Central Aus­tin Community Development Corporation said, "We're disappointed in the initial recommendation in that it really does not serve the residential densities in Austin north of the river..."

November Calling: PACs Form on Rail Vote
Groups organizing for and against potential bond proposition
DAILY News  April 8, 2014, by Mac McCann and Michael King
"...Finally, the Scott Morris-led “Our Rail” PAC was recently formed as well, and is an unofficial extension of the ongoing argument over the preliminary Central Corridor Advisory Group route recommendation to build a “Highland sub-corridor” rail line (running along the western side of the UT-Austin campus to the Highland neighborhood). According to its treasurer filing, “Our Rail” was specifically formed “to support a city charter amendment to designate the Guadalupe-North Lamar corridor to receive top priority for a light rail transit alignment” and “to oppose the 'Project Connect' Mass Transit Referendum,” or “A ballot measure authorizing a mass transit alignment serving the City Manager-recommended sub-corridors approved by Austin City Council on 12/12/13" (i.e., the Highland sub-corridor)...."

Point Austin: Still Waiting for the Train
Will Austin ever get a proper light rail system?
News Column  December 17, 2015, by Michael King
"...1 attended last week's Urban Transportation Commission meeting, to pitch a renewed vision for light rail. Scott Morris of the grandly named Central Austin Community Development Corpor­a­tion and Nathan Brigmon of the Civic Ana­lytics consultant firm presented their new draft proposal, running south from Rund­berg along the Lamar/Guadalupe corridor, across Lady Bird Lake at First Street, and heading over to Pleasant Valley, with potential extensions to the southeast and southwest..."

Aiming for the Big Kill
Scott Martin on the inaccurate West in his new gunslinger flick
DAILY Screens  October 18, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...In Martin's new film Big Kill (which he wrote, directed, and stars in), it's a messy West. Guns-for-hire Jake (Morris) and Travis (Clint Hummel) have been run out of Mexico, and take the first available job: Escorting genteel accountant Jim (Christoph Sanders) to the two-horse town of of Big Kill, Arizona..."

Point Austin: From Frontage Road, Texas
Traffic jamming at the Urban Rail Town Hall
News Column  August 28, 2014, by Michael King
"...After apparently significant backstage pushback, the official panel suddenly included a wider range of viewpoints: rail opponents Jim Skaggs and Bill Oakey; Project Connect opponents Scott Morris (subbed Tuesday by Andrew Clements) and Lyndon Henry; and Project supporters Mar­tha Smiley of the Chamber of Commerce, CM Bill Spelman, and Thomas Butler of the Downtown Austin Alliance and Let's Go Austin. The result was a lively discussion, and though it was hard to tell if any minds were changed, by the end it was least possible to imagine progress on Smiley's injunction: "Whether you vote it up or down, you will at least understand what you're voting on." Best and Worst..."

Point Austin: More Connected Than Thou
Multimodal objections to a multimodal project
News Column  August 7, 2014, by Michael King
"...Of late, opponents have accused the planning team of lying and unethical behavior, and of "promoting" the project instead of just describing it neutrally, and even of failing to repeat the opponents' arguments for them. This week, a couple of those opponents, Scott Morris and Lyndon Henry – representing yet more fleeting groupuscules – charged, in a lengthy press release, that Project Connect had surreptitiously and deceptively withdrawn from the Federal Transportation Administration process for environmental review, and the entire process will now be subject to a wasteful "Do Over."..."

SXSW Comedy Review: Comedy Bang! Bang!
Aukerman’s high-wire absurdism makes for an electric live show
DAILY Arts  March 13, 2017, by Sean L. Malin
"...McKenna commanded the stage until the entrance of Seth Morris (best known to podcast devotees as the perennially ill Bob Ducca) as a semi-official city employee tasked with “keeping Austin weird.” With a caterpillar mustache and long limbs, it takes little for Morris to play a hipster creep that requires all homemade kombucha “to have that little loogie thing at the top.” But when Morris got a classic improv scene going which found him measuring several Austinite couples’ weirdness quotients, Esther’s became cacophonous with familiar, lightly drunken hooting...."

Bedfellows Getting Strange
Urban rail project slammed from opposite wings
DAILY News  June 9, 2014, by Michael King
"...A few days later (June 5), the Central Austin Community Development Corporation, a community organizing nonprofit, issued a press release announcing a “powerful grassroots coalition” to oppose the Project Connect plan, arguing instead for the Guadalupe-North Lamar corridor. Issued by CDC Director Scott Morris, the release was co-signed by representatives of the Crestview, Highland, Hyde Park, and Northfield neighborhood associations, and UT-Austin student government, collectively self-described as “serving over 100,000 Austinites.” The release argues against Project Connect’s current plan: “Our groups strongly support light rail, but Project Connect's East Riverside to Highland Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) would result in a broken system, an ineffective transportation investment for our city and region, and a politically non-viable ballot measure.” (Morris is also treasurer of “Our Rail,” a PAC organized to support only a Guadalupe-Lamar alignment and to oppose any Project Connect plan for the Highland corridor.)..."

Austin radio stations scramble to keep the money flowing in a strange new media world
News Story  December 17, 2004, by Kevin Brass
"...Although it routinely finishes in the top five stations among listeners 25-54 – the key target demographic for most stations – KGSR, for all the adoration, rarely cracks the top 10 in overall listeners, trailing such ratings monsters as country station KASE-FM and the "soft rock" of KKMJ-FM, Majic 95.5. "KGSR's strength as a station is that it targets people in higher-end ZIP codes," said Ben Morris, partner in MQ&C Advertising...."

In Person
Disregarding any traces of overstatement, it was hard to not think of Jean Genet while studying the work of Floyd Bell, whose studio is the Snake River Correctional Institution in Ontario, Ore. …
Books Story  March 28, 2003, by Shawn Badgley
"...Sales themselves were slow: This wasn't, after all, your typical art-buying crowd, though prices were reasonable. And there was formidable artwork up on the rickety wooden fence and store walls: Scott Servis' disturbing pencil drawing of a droidlike figure nailing himself to a cross, bordered with the jagged text of "To sustain its existence, the ruling microcosm needs your total subservience"; a man called Morris' smudgy charcoals of wide-eyed, weeping women; Andy Reindeau's vivid, symbolist collage..."
