What Happened to the No-Kill Millennium?
Austin's plan to end wholesale euthanasia at Town Lake shelter remains a distant dream
News Story  November 18, 2005, by Rachel Proctor May
"...But there's one big area where everyone doesn't agree: Spay/neuter groups and most of the Animal Advisory Commission want council to pass an ordinance requiring pet owners either to fix their animals, or to buy pricey licenses to keep them intact. Others, particularly hobby breeders and dog show people, have made clear they'd rather eat high-end puppy chow than allow government to get between their pets' legs..."

The Daily Hustle: 7/26/10
Item! From council!
DAILY News  July 26, 2010, by Wells Dunbar
"...Item 90, lead sponsor Mike Martinez, also deals with animals, creating an ordinance that would ban retail sale of dogs and cats in pet stores. “A a review of USDA inspection reports from more than 100 breeders who sold animals to the nation’s largest retail pet store chain revealed more than 60 percent of the inspections found serious violations of basic animal care standards, including sick or dead animals in their cages, lack of proper veterinary care, inadequate shelter from weather conditions, and dirty, unkempt cages that were too small,” reads the item backup...."

Screens Story  August 30, 2002, by Marrit Ingman
"...Despite the plenitude of parenting Web sites, there's a paucity of online destinations offering more than recipes, due-date calculators, and pop-up ads for belly balm. Why? Most breeders don't check their brains at the delivery-room door (or toss them out after the homebirth)..."

Gearing up for 1998 Titles
Screens Story  March 6, 1998, by Kayte VanScoy
"...Clan of the Cave Bea meets Frankenstein-goes-to-war is about the most concise description I can muster for Illusion Machine's spring release Dawn of War, which features warring bands of Cro-Magnons, Neanderthals, and a fantasy race of post-dinosaurian humanoids. Not only can each band learn and develop new technologies during play, but they can sire stronger, smarter offspring with the right combination of breeders..."

No Aloha
Going long distance with Kim Deal
DAILY Music  September 21, 2010, by Audra Schroeder
"...However, for a whole generation of ladies who came of age in the early 1990s and didn't necessarily identify with shaggy-hair dude rock, Kim Deal was the ideal. The Breeders, the band she formed with twin sister Kelley after the Pixies split, agreed with my Midwest sensibilities, and their 1993 LP Last Splash is forever part of my musical education...."

The Breeders were my catalyst: during a road trip with non-stop abuse to my Breeders & Pixies cassettes (back in the day!) I was feeling inspired so I pulled over at a rest stop and called Greg (ahem - Wendell Stivers)..."

Imagine Me & You
A traditional romantic comedy with a lesbian twist, Imagine Me and You has its charms, but for a movie about loving radically, it sure plays it safe.
starstarhalfstar
Film Review  February 10, 2006, by Marrit Ingman
"...The lesbian twist is the movie’s only really remarkable feature, although the actors are fine, and Goode makes a favorable impression as a likable guy trying to figure things out and make his marriage work. I’m hesitant to commend the filmmakers for making a real bisexual date movie, although that is an achievement, and the movie gives Luce and Rachel’s relationship plenty of romantic-comedy juice (they get a meet cute, a date montage, and a tense third-act miscommunication, just like the breeders do)..."
