News Story  August 31, 2001, by Michael King
"...The forum didn't get much saucier than that. After a few exchanges, an unasked question hovered in the air: "Is there anything on which any of you disagree?"

News Column  September 29, 2000, by Jim Hightower

Because all three of these steps require an influx of new government funding, George and the GOP are against them..."

During Gov. Bush's campaign for his party's presidential nomination last fall, reporters asked the candidate to comment on a federal government report asserting that many Texans, including large numbers of children, were going to bed hungry. "I saw the report that children in Texas are going hungry. Where?" he demanded, going on to say, "You'd think the governor would have heard if there are pockets of hunger in Texas."

Wood explains as she explores the very pockets of hunger in Austin Bush has difficulty fathoming.

Breaking the Biker Code

Features Story  December 10, 1999, by Kathy McCarty
"...(Some of them certainly could be nightclub bouncers, though.) So I decided that the thing to do was to interview a lot of bikers to find out the answers to these pressing questions. Had I been a bit more insightful, and less like a naive 10-year-old, I would have realized before I began my interviewing that no one wants to break character and openly admit they are a farb! (And the number of people who will admit to making a living illegally is even smaller.) The few guys who did admit to having jobs all said they "worked for the city," which is pretty obscure. I thought it was interesting that they all used the same terminology (as teachers? as garbage men? as urban planners?)..."

SXSW Records
Jeff Beck
Music Story  March 11, 1999
"...Right off the bat, or rather right after the fiendish opener "Dream Date," Goodbye Private Life scores with "Never Been Kissed," the sharpest ode to sexual frustration since "Add It Up." Phillip Niemeyer breaks it down: "I'm 23 and I've never been kissed/Be 35 and I'll never be touched/Be 45 and I'll never be fucked." Be that as it may, before the Kiss Offs close things out with "The Horrible, Shocking Truth," a ? & the Mysterians-guided peepshow of kissing booths, kidney thieves, and leather-lovin' eighth-grade teachers, the Austin fivepiece have gotten a whole album's worth of rocks off. Niemeyer and Katey Jones' trade-off vocals have all the sexual tension of East Coast neo-soulsters The Make Up or Delta 72 (Jones has those groovy Farfisa lines on lock), but instead of aloofly sipping Manhattans, they're getting trashed on Pearl and Cuervo shots..."

Columns  December 25, 1998
"...I can't imagine every one of those children have trees at home, because I know not all of them celebrate Christmas. I know from my own experience, at elementary school, that Chanukah was never mentioned when it came to "Christmas" vacation or "What do you want for Christmas?" Due to peer pressure and intimidation of Christmas being heaped upon me (by teachers, too), as a young shy girl I felt embarrassed to admit I didn't "do" Christmas..."
