From Wikipedia: "Marvin Harold Zindler (August 10, 1921 July 29, 2007) was a news reporter for television station KTRK-TV in Houston, Texas, United States. His investigative journalism, through which he mostly represented the city's elderly and working class, made him one of the city's most influential and well-known media personalities. Zindler made local and national headlines when he and reporter Larry Conners closed the Chicken Ranch in Fayette County, Texas, near La Grange, after he made a news report on it in 1973. The Chicken Ranch story was the basis for the Broadway and film musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. The closing did not go well with the sheriff of Fayette County, T.J. Flournoy, who later attacked Zindler in a fight that left Zindler with two fractured ribs, along with a snatched toupee." Condition: Good. Cover has some wear and soiling. Some cover curving.
