The Weather Man
In this heartfelt comic drama, a wonderfully controlled Nicolas Cage plays a man who, despite the appearance of success, is despondent over his superficiality.
Film Review  October 28, 2005, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...David Spritz (Cage) belongs to that dissatisfied modern movie breed of privileged white men who reach some kind of spiritual breaking point and decide to fight back: Think Kevin Spacey in American Beauty, Edward Norton in Fight Club, or Michael Douglas in Wonder Boys or Falling Down. Ostensibly a success story, Spritz is a top Chicago weatherman who’s currently under consideration for a broadcasting position on a New York morning show, Hello America (co-hosted by Bryant Gumbel, in an amusing cameo)..."

Gumbo Weather: Winter Warmup, Cajun-style
Food Story  February 4, 1999
"...It's also the time that food-crazy Cajuns lovingly refer to as "gumbo weather." The first frigid north winds trigger a communal urge for huge bowls filled with the cold-weather favorite -- a magical middle ground between stew and soup that reflects the land's bounty and fertile culinary culture. Whether it's chunky with chicken and smoked pork sausage or laced with halved blue crabs and plump Gulf shrimp, hot gumbo counts as the only true antidote for a wetland winter and one of French Louisiana's primary food groups...."

Why Do Texans Let Weather Get in the Way?
Postmarks  January 17, 2007
"...Hell, it looks from here like Austin is closed! And why? Because there's a hint of ice on the ground? A quarter inch of ice renders us helpless? We can't deliver mail, go to work, school, etc., whenever we have one of these winter storms? I mean, sure, going out in this wet, cold misery on foot is an act of masochism to say the least, but still. Well, I suppose ice storms haven't happened that often in the four-plus years I've lived here, but they are a fairly well-known condition of Texas winter. Suppose this weather continues; are we just going to keep closing things down, keep delaying important services, for as long as the storm goes on? This does not make sense to me..."

Nothing Warm but the Weather
Postmarks  May 21, 2018
"...In my opinion, you are both among the more knowledgeable and objective in verbally cutting through the myriad local issues and positions. In other words, you are usually the antithesis of “fake news.” However, your article last week about the Chamber’s CodeNEXT survey was, in my opinion, way off base in implying a recent “warming to CodeNEXT.” ["Warming to CodeNEXT?" News, May 18.] The only thing warming since the 6-month-old survey is the weather..."

"... One of the great things about an improve show is that it's always a one-time experience! I love that last night will never repeat itself in history- ever. Sharing one-time jokes with the comedians on stage and those sitting around you is worth the effort of getting out into the suddenly cold weather.

Doctor Evil? – has hacked their way into said satellites and the ginormous international space station that controls and constructs them. This results in a Weather Channeling orgy of cascading meteorological fiascos..."

In its gadget-lust and obvious Transformers envy, G-Force is a loud and stupid Jerry Bruckheimer production, and its guinea pig spies are similarly crude.

Film Review  July 31, 2009, by Kimberley Jones
"...The adolescent ticket-taker at Monday's matinee told me I have really pretty hair, and I very nearly fell over – how often, really, are people kind without provocation or generous without hope of reward? I was a little bit shamed, actually, and I decided I was going to be a better person, starting right then and there – starting, in fact, with G-Force, a movie I had only an hour before referred to, sight unseen, as "that goddamn gerbil spy movie." My first mistake: G-Force stars guinea pigs, not gerbils. My second mistake: I should have pledged to start this new open-hearts policy in another 89 minutes, which is how long it takes to weather this technically competent if utterly artless family film from überproducer Jerry Bruckheimer..."
