DAILY News  June 14, 2007, by Lee Nichols
"...Texas Monthly has released its biennial list of the best and worst lawmakers from the just-completed legislative session, and the magazine rated Austin Democratic Sen. Kirk Watson as the "Rookie of the Year." In an early release of the list, TexMo says, "The former Austin mayor (and once and future statewide candidate) instantly earned respect for his intellect and diplomacy – and for knowing enough to let his elders take credit for his accomplishments." None of the Travis County delegation made either the best or worst lists, but our neighbor Sen..."

"...A final funding formula was also calculated, in which the state would pay 15% of the total budget and the first $1 million of production costs -- the state's share amounting to nearly $2 million of a total cost approaching $6 million. (The balance has been guaranteed by the private foundation associated with the museum, and includes "gifts" of $1.5 million each from Southwest Airlines and ExxonMobil.) The director chosen was Al Reinert, the talented former Texas Monthly writer who co-wrote the screenplay of the award-winning Apollo 13..."

All Politics Is Local at Texas Tribune Festival
Evan Smith leads the fest’s move Downtown and brings national newsmakers to Austin
News Story  September 27, 2018, by Mike Clark-Madison
"...Conceptually, TribFest predates the Tribune itself; when Smith was still "just the lowly editor" of Texas Monthly, he started exploring the idea of a festival to extend that magazine's brand and reach, without much enthusiasm from his colleagues. Those explorations linked him up with South by Southwest Managing Direc­tor Roland Swenson and then-UT President Bill Powers; then just as the three parties solidified plans for the first Texas Monthly Festival, 10 years ago, Lehman Brothers collapsed and we were off to the Great Reces­sion races...."

Texas Tales
For those of you who are still pondering the eternal question that seems to arise wherever beer and English majors appear together in the Lone Star State, the answer is: Texas does indeed have a separate and distinctive literature, Tom Doyal writes. If you have been arguing the other side of this proposition, the writers and publishers of Texas have issued you a sharp rebuke in their new spring releases.

"..."You'll find copies of the Kyoto Treaty under your chairs," quipped Texas Monthly Editor Evan Smith at the start of the sixth Texas Film Hall of Fame induction ceremony, a nod to Friday night's unseasonable swelter. If anything, the sultry conditions inside the Austin Studios soundstage seemed to loosen purse strings, among other things; what followed was possibly the longest benefit auction on record, with well-heeled film patrons, egged on by auctioneer and radio personality Bob Cole, jostling to outdo one another in the bidding over Marfa getaway weekends and A Scanner Darkly premiere trips..."

"...Familiar with these numbers from years of work as an advocate and as a judge, CPPP director Scott McCown pointed out conservatively last week that to address the crisis at CPS, the number of caseworkers would have to be tripled from the current 800 to 2,700, allowing the monthly caseload to drop from its currently preposterous level of 62 per month.

Guess what – that costs money, which can be obtained only by creating a reasonable, progressive, and productive state tax system..."
