"...They "reorganize" the TEA so hard that thousands of teachers will be laid off and schools will (once again) be forced to do more with less, but they throw millions of corporate welfare dollars at the cattle industry to research cow genomes? They've all but guaranteed that insurance companies will lower services and raise rates. They've invented the catch phrase "Tort Reform" because it fits on a bumper sticker better than "Negligent Corporations Can Injure or Kill You With Unsafe Products and Poisoned Food and You (Or Your Grieving Family) Can't Sue Them to Recover Damages." Now they're costing us $1.7 million to hold a special legislative session just so they can blatantly gerrymander the state, the better to hand over more of our tax dollars to their corporate masters next regular session...."

SIMS Health Fair/Caritas South by Soup Fest
Music Showcase
Music Review  March 14, 2003, by Christopher Hess
"...If nothing else, it'll help put the buffets of other daytime parties into their proper perspective. Back at the Health Fair, there were free health services for all who came, from free HIV testing to a dental mobile that'd scare the crap out of many an unsuspecting kid and any number of other tables, most handing out food and nonalcoholic beverages along with their pamphlets..."

Columns  July 19, 2002
"...Wow! So a building whose main virtue is that it is so close to everything that people can walk everywhere, including the food store, is according to your writer adding to the traffic ["Naked City," July 12]. Does she prefer these residents live in Circle C, so that they must drive everywhere? And to fabricate that some units have stunning views "into the inmate recreational yard" while sniffing at the hype and buzz about the building just go to show some people just can't accept a success story even when its completely environmentally friendly..."

Playwright as Architect
In a conversation on art and craft, playwrights Dan Dietz and Wayne Alan Brenner discuss making the blueprints for and building a drama.
Arts Story  October 26, 2001, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...My own efforts in writing for the stage include Bloodbrother Weekend, directed by Steve Bacher for the Vortex over a decade ago, which examined social dynamics at a dope-saturated Karen Black Film Festival; Waiting on Godot, a half-food-service-rant, half-Beckett-homage that packed the old Electric Lounge; and the recent Art Stripped Naked, directed by Ken Webster, a look at the differences between life and art and the way love can sometimes bridge those gaps. As a playwright who came to theatre after writing prose, I wanted to discuss the hows and whys of writing for theatre...."

'What Is Justice?'
A state program that enables offenders and their victims meet face-to-face has helped Andrew Papke take full responsibility for the drunken driving-related deaths of Beth Early and Daniel London.
News Story  August 24, 2001, by Michael May
"...On the morning of June 29, 1996, Papke -- who had spent the previous night partying until 4am -- drove Janine from their North Austin apartment to an abortion clinic across town. Instead of waiting, Andrew recalls, he told Janine he needed to "get some food in his stomach." Shaking and nauseous from alcohol withdrawal, he drove back home and pulled a beer from the fridge..."

Readers' last gasps on light rail.
Columns  November 3, 2000
"...This passenger train for Austin that you are endorsing is going to do a couple of bad things against the native population: Increase the property value along its lines, benefiting the European-owned northwest portion, the Middle East-owned central, and their Latino supporters selling junk food and alcohol on the Eastside; serve mostly students and middle-classers that arrived recently; and when the time comes to build it, manage it, and operate it, the City Council is going to do a "nationwide search." You guys and the Statesman are running a nonstop campaign mostly in favor of it. You know damn well that the Capital Metro aberration was created by the outsiders that got here in the Eighties boom, currently managed by this mistake-prone girl from New York, and that light rail, whatever, will be implemented by the new voters, the outsiders of the Nineties, who are bringing in wealth and leaving misery for the locals..."

Warning! Nudity!
Austinites love to shed their clothes, and a number of them do it onstage -- what's up with that? Some of the city's most nakedness-prone actors, performance artists, and directors expose their reasons to arts writer Ada Calhoun.
Arts Story  April 14, 2000, by Ada Calhoun
"...But it's not always a good thing. One way Fix says it's nearly always misused is in a commercial context, where semi-nude women are draped over everything from cars to food..."

Adventures in Backpacking
While traversing the globe in search of enlightenment, writer Mary Fitzgerald finds something altogether different: the steadily growing tribe of the full-time traveler. Outfitted to the teeth with Stussy, batik, Birkenstock, and the latest John Grisham novel, these nomadic wanderers have an entire culture all their own.
Features Story  March 24, 2000, by Mary Fitzgerald
"...While cities such as Bangkok and Kathmandu can absorb these ghettos, smaller places can have their characters irreversibly changed by pandering to travelers' demands for Western food, bars, and other home comforts. The Lonely Planet guidebook series helps promote, however unwittingly, this rash of traveler-oriented centers..."

Eat the fresh eggs of the watchchickens at the Luckenbach Inn Bed & Breakfast.
Columns  February 4, 2000, by Gerald E. McLeod
"...Carinbas calls it "small and cozy." Rather long and narrow, the building was actually the original smokehouse for the ranch. Smoked meats were cured in the attic, the ranch's saddles and tack were stored on the ground floor, and the root cellar below, which is now a wine cellar, was used to store foods before refrigeration came to the Hill Country...."

Thistle Cafe
Food Review  February 4, 2000, by Rachel Feit
"...Still, for busy families who want a wholesome meal without the hassle of cooking and cleanup, the Thistle Cafe just might be sized to fit. The kids will love inventing their own pizzas, pastas, and sandwiches, while moms and dads will appreciate the convenience of a restaurant that offers fresh food, available not just for dining in, but also for takeout..."

Such things are the food of the gods indeed...."

Arts & Entertainment
Best of Austin Story  September 24, 1999
"...While the idea of dinner theatre (mediocre food and a play featuring fading TV stars) has gone the way of the dinosaur, this downtown cinema reinvents the concept with top-notch nibbles and a choice lineup of flicks. Readers all slapped their foreheads and said "duh" when it opened, and now they queue up at every opportunity...."

"...Mark books by appointment only, guarantees his work, and fixes only what's necessary. One food critic drives an '83 pickup with 438,000 miles on the odometer -- it runs like it's brand-new, and Mark's the only one who's ever worked on it..."

Laura's Bluebonnet Kitchen
Food Column  September 10, 1999
"...Homestyle food with an urban flair, Laura's Bluebonnet Kitchen serves a hearty dollop of kitsch with each Southern comfort meal at this blue-hued restaurant decorated with vintage kitchen appliances. Specialties such as tender pork loin with savory cornbread dressing, spinach casserole, and cheese mashed potatoes star among the cast of cuisines offered here..."

Live at Liberty Lunch
The Neville Brothers
Music Story  July 22, 1999
"...Wolfson For all its legend as an Austin music institution, I prefer looking at Liberty Lunch as a personal marker, beginning in the mid-Seventies when Shannon Sedwick and Michael Shelton dreamed up the open air cafe/music venue as an extension of their Esther's Follies empire. Distinguished by Doug Jacques' aquarium mural on the west wall, the club's first drawing card was the food, but within a couple years, the lunch part had been shelved in favor of music when Sedwick and Shelton opted out and Mark Pratz and J-Net Ward stepped in..."

Bush on Borderline
Columns  June 10, 1999
"... Let us instead focus on his mythical underprivileged family and consider the justice of a culture which places major physical obstacles to the access of basic human needs (i.e. jobs, food, medical care, etc) without the expenditure of thousands of dollars annually on two tons of pollution-belching metal..."

Playing on the Past
Screens Story  June 10, 1999, by Chris Baker
"...Some of the rarest and most prized retrogames were simply crass advertising ploys that were never offered for sale. Coke Wins, Proctor and Gamble's Tooth Protectors, and Chase the Chuckwagon ("a dog food promotional; awful game") were the stuff of legend among retrogamers for years...."

Guilty Pleasures for June
Screens Column  June 3, 1999, by Belinda Acosta
"...Sure, June is the beginning of fun in the sun, picnics, camping out, and all that. But for those of us who can't take the Texas heat, get tired of shooing bugs from our food, and refuse to use facilities with non-flushing appliances, a little TV in air-conditioned comfort is the perfect summer getaway..."

The Emperor Jones
Arts Story  April 29, 1999, by Robi Polgar
"...In March, he directed the premiere of Woman at the Window, written by his wife, Cyndi Williams, for the Refraction Arts Project. Onstage, he has been even busier: singing with The Barkers in Refraction's revival of Durrenmatt's The Visit; stealing comic moments as Ford in Subterranean Theatre Company's staging of Nicky Silver's The Food Chain; brooding ominously as cuckolded husband Robert in The Public Domain's production of Pinter's Betrayal; and now playing Richard, the partner of a dying man surrounded by family, in Daniel MacIvor's The Soldier Dreams, which Subterranean opens this weekend...."

Stompy Jones
Music Story  April 29, 1999, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Though the orchestra had been playing live simulcasts since its earliest shows at the Cotton Club, adding motion pictures to their résumé in 1929, and Broadway in '30, it was through radio that Ellington's music began seeping into the public consciousness. The cheapest form of entertainment in a time when a dust bowl full of Americans could not afford food and shelter, radio brought Ellington to millions, who, rather than being turned off by the cosmopolitaness of it all, were swept away by the wordless romance, tales of far away places and better times..."

Texas Platters
Jimmy Lafave
Music Story  April 22, 1999
"...Slick, soulless, generic. And over-long, which brings to mind that joke about the food being terrible and the portions too small..."

Gang of Guerillas
Books Review  January 28, 1999
"...Just as surprisingly, rarely do they call up their ghosts for cooking advice, and their loves are just as sweet when they are not stuck in the time of cholera. At first glance, Francisco Hinojosa's slim collection of stories, Hectic Ethics, provides a surprising reprieve from the familiar tradition of magical realism that has made all those ghosts and rich food such clichés: His characters are lonely and cruel, and every twist of the plotline leads to the further destruction of an already apocalyptic Mexico City..."

Faces and Places
Books Story  December 18, 1998, by Margaret Moser
"...At school, bomb drills and duck-and-cover have supplanted fire drills. My parents keep a closet full of non-perishable food, blankets, a transistor radio and batteries, and distilled water in case the Cubans attack..."

Raised in Captivity: Family Values
Arts Review  September 18, 1998
"...Anyone familiar with Nicky Silver's work should recognize these kinds of extreme characters from such plays as The Food Chain and Pterodactyls, both of which have been staged by Subterranean Theatre Company, the group producing here. As in those comedies, Silver magnifies the degree of self-absorption to a point of absurdity, allowing his characters to be played for overwrought fools, which, generally, the actors in these Subterranean shows do memorably..."

Live Shots
Music Story  September 4, 1998
"...For anyone who would condemn the arguably corrupting influence of this ritual of popular culture on the moral fiber of these unsuspecting youths, breathe easy; if nothing else, this particular event reinforced a major tenet of the American Way of Life – our God-given right to be consumers (I consume, therefore I am). The T-shirt/tour book concessions I expected, and of course, the endless lines for junk food, but this dad proved to be the naive one as I wasn't quite prepared for the inescapable multimedia blitz of advertisements that pummeled this captured audience with cyber-frenetic images and electro-hypnotic grooves from huge video monitors and stacks of speakers..."
