News & Opinion

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

W hile the Eco-warriors of today are able to exert some very real political power, the 60's were a less influential time for groups such as the Sierra Club. Read one woman's story of anger and destruction as she moved from Hollywood hopeful to naturalist in the Colorado River area in "The Starlet's Passion."

While impeachment hearings proceed and Clinton tries to present his case for doing the work of the people, three writers check in with their take on the matter. Weekly Alibi's Cap'n O gives us a primer in "Constitutional Illiteracy." Salt Lake City Weekly's D.P. Sorenson and Kristen Riedelbach follow up with their musings in "Mind Over Matter" and "Sell It to Larry Flint."

Also in News & Opinion this week: depression, the iMac, internet Armageddon, crappy drivers, wedding rings, and more.
