Freaks of Nature
I and many other native plant “freaks” have enjoyed our own little refuges of native habitat, experiencing the flora and fauna that used to be so common here—a true reflection of Texas—before the manicured lawn with its plants from Asia, Africa and Europe came to be the standard [Meadow Oasis, September 2020].

Thank you for highlighting the story of Jessie Daniel Ames, a compassionate, strong, confident woman who fought for our right to vote in addition to protesting against lynchings of people of color [Empowering Every Vote, August 2020].

The first time I saw Giant, I was very young [Reel Moments, September 2020]. It made such an impression on me. I am 63 and have seen it more times than I can count. Thank you for the wonderfully written story.

It is amazing that so many good movies have been made in Texas. One that was left out, Secondhand Lions, was filmed around Austin in 2002 and was, hands down, one of the best movies ever made.

How can you do a story on films in Texas and not mention Hud?

How could you not include The Last Picture Show, filmed in Archer City, written by Larry McMurtry and nominated for eight Academy Awards?
