Q: I work as an attorney at a firm in downtown Houston. And though I drive a 2018 Ford F-150 King Ranch, it’s never too much of an issue navigating the parking garage of the tower where we office. Lately, though, I’ve been coming across a Chevy Silverado 2500 HD crew cab with a long bed that is way too much truck to park in our garage. When that thing is in certain spots, I can barely get by. One time I had to back down two levels, which took about twenty minutes and really pissed me off.
Q: It’s been more than 60 years since I took Texas history, but I seem to recall pretty clearly that many of Texas’s most significant formative events occurred during the month of March. So why isn’t March known as Texas History Month? A: Congratulations, Mr. Clatt. Your power of recall is strong. Though not, the Texanist feels compelled to note, exceptionally strong, at least among Texans. Whether one is a pimply-faced seventh-grader sitting rapt at the front of Coach E.A.
Q: I am a born and raised Texan from Sinton. I now live in New Braunfels and I often go to Gruene Hall for shows when legendary entertainers blow through there. Lately, I’m bothered by something that I hope you can shed some light on. More and more people are showing up at Gruene Hall in cargo shorts and flip flops. Is this proper? Gruene Hall is the oldest dance hall in Texas and it needs to be respected.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
