Simmering controversy between two Sixth Street businesses is boiling over
Food Column  July 16, 2010, by Virginia B. Wood
"...Notarthomas is a guitar player who provides employment for other musicians – parkside hires musicians, as well, and participates in annual benefits for the SIMS Foundation, so that point appears to be a wash. The Best Wurst bills itself as "a cheap eats" option that's an "integral part of the definitive Sixth Street experience."

Books Story  December 5, 1997
"..."Once I realized that I'm a voice that people listen to, I realized I had to fill my voice with something of substance," says Chuck D in Fight the Power: Rap, Race and Reality by Chuck D with Yusuf Jah (Delacorte Press, $23.95), a powerful hip-hop memoir that doubles as a poignant and occasionally angry political dispatch. Indeed, on the written page, where he's finally free from the inherent constraints of rhymes and beats, Chuck D's voice and its unabashedly militant substance come off as downright literary..."
