Hey, PAL: Get Lost

Budget cutbacks threaten one city program that works

Q.So, basically, Germans were the hotties of the era?

A.Very much so. They had this big inferiority complex…they are constantly feeling like their fashion is inferior to Paris. So they refer to Parisians as these whores and they're trying to make Paris fashion [seem] as abysmal as possible, but in fact most of the German women want Paris fashion…Isn't it weird that [the Nazis] can kill millions of people but they can't get women to wear what they want them to wear?

Q.You concentrate on women in the book, but given the homoerotic tones of the famous Leni Riefenstahl films, were the men chic also?

You can't spell "It's snazzy!" without N-A-Z-I. Bullwhip 
sold separately.

New water park: The posh Post Oak Little 
League famously compromised last year with the T.H. 
Rogers K-8 school, earning the right to keep using 
HISD fields in exchange for upgrading school property. 
After last week's rains, however, it's clear the luxurious 
baseball fields still have a place to drain to: the Rogers 
playground.

New water park: The posh Post Oak Little League famously compromised last year with the T.H. Rogers K-8 school, earning the right to keep using HISD fields in exchange for upgrading school property. After last week's rains, however, it's clear the luxurious baseball fields still have a place to drain to: the Rogers playground.

A. Oh, I think so, very much…Certainly when you get into these organizational groups, the men especially, they were like preening peacocks! The SS really valued the fact that they were the only ones who could wear black and shiny boots.

Q.Any thought to a pinup calendar to accompany the book?

A. No, no. I'm not sure who would pose for it -- maybe males in Nazi women's outfits?

Rest Easy, Criminal Kingpins

The Future Criminal Masterminds club has, sadly, lost a potential member with the May 12 arrest of 18-year-old Larry Akeem Rasberry.

Rasberry attended Kashmere High School as a freshman, but even though he left school he still felt the tug of being a Ram.

Being a well-armed Ram, as it turned out -- he showed up before school May 4 and started displaying a gun, HISD says. But a well-armed Ram is not always a well-coordinated Ram -- Rasberry dropped the gun and it went off, hitting no one. He picked up the gun and fled.

Principal Stanton Lawrence wasn't satisfied. "I take it quite personally and feel extremely violated when anyone compromises the safety of students and staff at Kashmere High," he says. Lawrence began looking out for Rasberry.

Which turned out to be a not-quite-exhausting task. Eight days later, he spotted Rasberry on a bike near the school -- the school where they were actively looking for him. HISD police arrested him and he faces a felony of carrying a weapon in a weapons-free zone.

Given his history, it's surprising that Rasberry wasn't wearing a neon shirt that said, "Arrest Me Now!" but HISD still managed to crack the case.
