José Guadalupe Posada
Arts Story  September 15, 1995
"...He saw himself as a technician, a printmaker, a competent draftsman, and a keen observer of his surroundings. One has only to look closely at his frisky skeleton caricatures (calaveras) and devilish assortment of otherworldly creatures to see that imagination as well as observation guided his hand...."

The Next Wave
A comprehensive look at the emerging Rock en Español movement in the United States
Music Story  November 12, 1999, by Melissa Sattley
"...In Austin to support their new album, La Marcha del Golazo Solitario ("March of the Solitary Goal"), Los Cadillacs are traveling down a mellower and jazzier avenue than on their last release, Fabulosos Calaveras, which resulted in last year's riotous show at Liberty Lunch. Maybe it's the new songs, or the fact that it's a Monday night, but tonight, things at La Zona Rosa are somewhat more low-key..."

Record Reviews
Music Review  December 5, 1997
"...Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Argentina's longtime rude boys now on their 12th album, might sound more spiritually akin to the excitingly schizophrenic Spanish/French/Arabic mulch of Mano Negra, but their confident, no-holds-barred lurching from style to style is Sandinista-era Clash all the way. Every song introduces something different to the mix: from the Santana-gets-sideways "El Muerto" and horn-driven Chicago-isms of "Surfer Calavera," to the Sepultura death vocals of "El Carnicero de Giles/sueno," Dixieland piano of "Howen," Parisian jazz stylings of "A Amigo JV," and old-world reggaeisms of "Calaveras y Diablitos" ("Niño Diamante" is pure Police)..."

The Q&A Hole: What's the Best Thing They Got for Christmas?
And what's the best thing they gave? Nine citizens answer.
DAILY Arts  January 1, 2014, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Burl Ives has a special place near the top of my Significant List Of Lifetime Horrors for the vomitous night I had gallstones. I took my doped-up first ambulance ride to the hospital in Calaveras County one Christmas Eve, where I was left sitting partially nude for hours in a freezing room listening to a small-town medical community chorus of "Holly Jolly Christmas" while high as a stratocumulus cloud made of morphine.
So I tend to avoid shopping or patronizing any business where I might hear a holiday classic re-rerecorded into a soulless cochlear analgesic, or hipped up into un-singalongability..."

Battling the Toxicity of Coal-Burning Power Plants
'Clear Skies' gets shot down, and Legislators try to cut the crud in Texas
News Story  March 18, 2005, by Rachel Proctor May
"...Texas is responsible for 11% of the nation's mercury emissions, much of it in "hot spots" around coal-burning plants in East Texas. (For Austinites, the closest source of mercury is San Antonio's three coal-burning plants at Calaveras Lake; a fourth plant is currently in the permitting process.) The "hot spot" factor makes environmentalists particularly irate that the EPA rules would allow plants to "trade" mercury emissions, allowing less-polluting plants to sell allowable pollution "credits" to heavier-polluting ones..."
