From Library Journal
Jane Reno, Janet Reno's alligator-wrestling mother, was a staple of press accounts of the attorney general's confirmation hearings. Fortunately, this collection of newspaper columns written for the Miami News fleshes out the nightly news caricature. A brief biography written by Wood's nephew Hurchalla, who edited this book, and Janet Reno's moving funeral eulogy for her mother are also included. A talented journalist, fascinated by the unique southern Florida environment, the isolated Seminole people, and various Miami characters, both straight and criminal, Reno enlivened her columns by such means as impersonating a pregnant woman to expose illegal baby-selling, walking 104 miles up the Florida coast, or interviewing a scuba diver underwater. In her spare time, she built her own house, survived hurricanes, and raised a remarkable family. Although appropriate citations to her columns are inexplicably lacking, journalism and regional collections, as well as libraries interested in Reno's famous daughter, will find this volume a worthwhile purchase.

In this story Agatha explains,
"Everything comes from something.
Nothing comes from nothing.
Just like paper comes from trees
and glass comes from sand.
An answer comes from a question
all you have to do is ask."
