Trillin on Texas By Calvin Trillin
Dear Senior Attorney Jina Hwang: You state: "Congressman Ron Paul, who advised us that these allegations, concerning Watergate and Iraq weapons purchases were derived from a book that you authored related to these matters. Gonzalez and other Democratic members on the assigned oversight of the Federal Reserve functions of that committee. Of course, I want to assist in bringing forward the problems I found in Federal Reserve operations that are deceptive, abusive and corrupt.
I spent a number of years at the LBJ School of Public Affairs carefully documenting the record in my book that includes some of my experiences with the Fed's IG office. Since you have given me short notice to return my reply, until this Friday, May 20, , I believe that the most helpful document other than my book would be the note I sent to Congressman Paul immediately after the February 24, Financial Services Committee hearing.
He placed my note shown below in the Congressional Record. Urquijo-Ruiz Arriving at the University of California, Riverside, the first member of my extended family to go to college, I read everything my professors recommended. Such experts, however, did not assign any texts that spoke directly to me and my experiences as a young woman of working-class Mexican descent who had begun to question her sexuality. I devoured such texts because they validated my experiences and empowered me as a Chicana lesbian. Scholars in fields like gender studies and English literature would also benefit from incorporating this book into their literary canons.
A lot can change in 22 years, not the least of which are the names we associate with the wildflowers in the first edition but we will come to that shortly. Since the Loughmillers' guide was first published in , more than , copies of Texas Wildflowers have been sold, placing it among the top three bestsellers for the University of Texas Press.
Those who subscribe to the "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" philosophy might question the reasons for a new edition, especially one that departs so radically in appearance from the first. Let's start by judging the book by its cover, literally.
The cover stock is made of a much more durable material to ensure longer life in the field, and the book is a bit narrower, to facilitate carrying it in a pack or pocket. These physical changes are all part of the University of Texas Press plan to develop a complete series of natural history field guides, covering everything that creeps, crawls, runs, swims, flies, or grows in our fair state.

Texas Wildflowers is the second book published in this University of Texas Press natural history series. Within the pages of this edition, great care was taken to preserve the spirit of the original text, including the original foreword written by Lady Bird Johnson. In it, she refers to the National Wildflower Research Center founded in on a farm-to-market road near Austin. Shortly thereafter, the name was changed to honor the center's co-founder and chairperson. Today, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center's acre site serves as a model native plant botanic garden with programs that protect, conserve, and restore our natural plant heritage.
It is a must-see if you are ever in the Austin area.

I've been a devoted customer since, and I have followed the making of this cookbook with great interest. Turns out it has exceeded every expectation. Thanks to Jessica Dupuy, who guided and polished the text while allowing Cole's voice to come through, reading the book is like talking to Cole in person. Dupuy truly brings the Uchi and Uchiko experience to life in these pages, and just like the food at both restaurants, the book is visually stunning, with impressive images by local photographer Rebecca Fondren.

Cuban Artists Across the Diaspora. This did not mean that they went out with guns to kill wolves. It meant that they kept packs of hound dogs and one or two nights a week they would take the dogs out and stay up all night listening to the dogs chase a wolf through the woods, following the chase in pickup trucks on back roads or, sometimes, sitting around a camp fire while the dogs circled around them through the woods.
The wolves that they hunted were actually coyotes, as wolves had been extirpated in that part of Texas since the s, but the terminology had clung to the sport long after the wolves had gone.
