They're History
The Blue Genie boys -- those whimsical artists responsible for the armadillo-festooned entrance to Threadgill's World Headquarters, the guitar gal atop Fran's Hamburgers, and other mini-landmarks around Austin -- have been fun for the people who see them and fun for the people who made them. Making giant panels for the new Texas State History Museum, though, was a bit more than just that.

The Secret History
That a man from San Antonio named Richard Santos has as much to add to the world of Jewish intellectual pursuits as an attorney named Rosen is as fascinating as it should be obvious, David Garza writes after he attended the Texas Jewish Historical Society's 22nd annual gathering.
