Margin of Error
Some Texas high schools may be violating the "top 10%" law, which guarantees admission to UT and other Texas colleges and universities, by exaggerating the number of students in the top 10% of their graduating classes.
News Story  April 21, 2000, by Jonathan David Carroll
"...The director of under-graduate admissions at the University of Texas says a number of Texas high schools are exaggerating the top 10% of their graduating classes -- thereby granting more students automatic admission to UT and other Texas colleges and universities. "I suspect high schools are fudging," director Bruce Walker said in a recent interview, referring to House Bill 588, a 1997 law that automatically admits students in the top 10% of their high school graduating classes to UT, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and other state schools regardless of scores on college entrance exams...."

"...The latest unhappy target is 1997's HB 588, more popularly known as the "Top 10% Law." Under this nationally heralded response to the U.S. Supreme Court's limitations on racially based affirmative action, any student in a Texas high school who graduates in the top 10% of his or her high school class is automatically eligible for admission to any state college or university..."

Mayor of the Sunset Strip
Profile of L.A. radio deejay Rodney Bingenheimer, perpetual handmaiden to rock & roll royalty.
Film Review  April 30, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...Everything I know about rock & roll, I learned from Rodney Bingenheimer. OK, maybe not everything (my brother hit me with the Devo stick early on, and I understood that Elvis was cool from the womb onward), but Bingenheimer’s long-running Rodney on the Roq Top 10 column in the seminal SoCal punk zine Flipside dictated my musical tastes from the moment I first laid eyes on it, circa 1982..."

Dead Silence
A supernatural thriller about a ventriloquist who goes mad, from the team that brought us Saw.
Film Review  March 23, 2007, by Marc Savlov
"...All three directors are such patent horror geeks that if it weren't for timeless popularity of the genre – little is ever certain outside of death, taxes, and evergreen cinematic purr of chainsaw lullabies – they'd probably be out doing something knifey to that postcoital couple down the block. But horror, unlike Lucio Fulci, lives and thrives in these tense times, and Dead Silence, while unlikely to make anybody's Top 10 list, is still a kicky exercise in spook-show atmospherics that manages to hit all the right notes while never quite coalescing into the Dario Argento-esque aria of creepiness it so clearly aspires to..."

Film Review  April 5, 1996, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...As is his style, Godard's musings span a spectrum that goes from silly to visionary. This movie ranks with some of Godard's best work (it made several critics' “top 10” lists in 1992), but it probably requires some prior familiarity with Godard's previous films in order to recognize that fact...."

Split Decision for Austin Film Critics Association
Get Out, The Shape of Water top local critic awards
Screens Story  January 11, 2018, by Richard Whittaker
"...What was 2017's top movie? According to the Austin Film Critics Association, the honor is divided between Get Out and The Shape of Water: Jordan Peele's breakout socio-horror was voted the best film of the year, while Guillermo del Toro's Cold War fantasy heads up the AFCA Top 10 list, as compiled from the individual top 10 lists of the 37 members of the association.

That is something for me to write, as I have never scouted a player, not even Peyton Manning, thought to be 100% “Death Proof.” After Johnson, we have five nice looking lads, about 10 guys I would like to have play for the Colts, and then around 200 players that could be drafted in the late first round to late fifth round depending on a team's hopes, dreams, and desires..."
