Film Review  June 14, 1996, by Marc Savlov
"...War film, history lesson, love story? Loach's new work is all of these and more, a sometimes-astonishing, sometimes-pedantic look at the Spanish Civil War of 1936, the first such film to deal with Franco and company since For Whom the Bell Tolls. Hart plays David, an unemployed, idealistic Brit who drops everything and rushes off to strike a blow for freedom alongside an international mix of incoming fighters from places such as Ireland, Italy, France, Germany, the United States, and, of course, Spain..."

Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom
Idris Elba is spellbinding in this biopic that reveres the man but slights the movement.
Film Review  December 20, 2013, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...The planned December release of this biopic about the universally revered South African leader could not be better timed. This nation-builder and worldwide face of the anti-apartheid movement died at the beginning of this month at the age of 95, following a prolonged illness, and was laid to rest after a 10-day mourning period that coincidentally coincided with the planned international rollout of Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom..."

From Freedom Fries to Fess Parker

Food Story  May 30, 2003, by Rebecca Chastenet dé Gery
"...I've just returned from a place where french fries have little to do with "freedom." Comfortably installed at a Parisian sidewalk cafe for lunch recently, freedom came into play only in my decision to devour the salty fried potato batons that curved around my plate as opposed to leaving them there because they were ... um, French...."

America: Freedom to Fascism
Although grounded in Libertarian theory, this documentary by producer-turned-director Aaron Russo presents provocative material about the perceived illegality of income taxes – and various freedom-restricting consequences of the new world order.
Film Review  July 28, 2006, by Marjorie Baumgarten
"...Yet the majority of Russo’s speakers are supporters of his cause – a cause that this former music promoter; former Bette Midler manager, producer of the films The Rose and Trading Places and failed candidate in the Nevada governor’s race is championing with this self-produced film. His efforts have been rewarded with a genuine grassroots campaign of viewer support, and in one of the odder examples of politics making strange bedfellows America: From Freedom to Fascism is being distributed by Cinema Libre – the independent company that has also released such left-identified fare as Uncovered: The War on Iraq, WMD: Weapons of Mass Deception, The Future of Food, and Tim Robbins’ Embedded Live..."

"...Dear Editor, Regarding the indignation over the cover of the Jan. 27 Chronicle [“The New Texas Family Planning,” News]; should we riot and burn in protest, as our contemporaries in the Middle East are doing in retaliation for recent cartoon depictions of their prophet? Supposedly, our country was founded on freedom of speech and a free press..."

Freedom Under Attack
Postmarks  July 19, 2018
"...Dear Editor, "Red flag" laws, or should we call them false flag laws, continue the attack on our freedoms! ["Gun Control? In Texas?" News, July 20.] Due process, one of the very foundations of our freedom, has been under attack for years (civil asset forfeiture laws allow the police to steal your property without even charging you with a crime!) and these laws accelerate that attack. These unconstitutional and immoral laws give the government, whether state or local or federal, much more power and the cost to the citizens is much less freedom! This is much more than a Second Amendment issue, although this basic human right must be protected vigorously! Article 1, Section 9 and 10 of the Texas Constitution and the Fourth Amendment to the U.S..."

Limits on Freedom
Postmarks  May 4, 2015
"...Dear Editor, While I strongly condemn the Garland shooting, I do wonder if freedom of speech means ridiculing a religious figure revered by more than a billion people.

Responsibilities of Freedom
Postmarks  May 8, 2018
"...The longtime owner of the tract, mindful of its historic and cultural importance, as well as the sensitive nature of both its neighbors and geology, sold it to a developer after being promised he would build three or four estate homes there. The developer then flipped it to the Blacks after realizing the land had a 12% impervious cover limit due to being an integral part of the Edwards Aquifer recharge zone. Lastly, yes, property rights are part of the freedom we enjoy, but freedom requires certain responsibilities, part of which is respect and consideration for each other..."

A Vote for Sexual Freedom
Postmarks  December 17, 2003
"...It's about sexual mores. Are we to live in a land where sexual freedom between consenting adults is considered acceptable and respectable, or a land where every act of sexual intercourse must be fraught with at least a slight threat of pregnancy and the decades of perhaps unwanted responsibilities that must inevitably follow, lest we stray from God's alleged intended purpose and engage in it purely for our own selfish pleasure? Personally, I vote for sexual freedom..."

What Price Freedom of Information?
Open government could come with a per-page surcharge.
DAILY News  May 7, 2007, by Richard Whittaker
"...It's a good thing that Texas is passing a journalism shield law, because reporters may need new tools to redress the hammering that the Freedom of Information Act could take this session. Today, while the House Judiciary committee will be taking testimony on that very shield law, House State Affairs will be hearing Senate Bill 889. This subtle but radical bill does away with the established idea that a FOIA request should be free (after all, it's your government, paid for with your taxes)..."
