LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

V alentine's Day is plowing down the highway at 90 m.p.h., trapping every man alive like a deer in it's headlights. That's right, it's just ahead, so flock to the greeting card store and grab a card and stuffed animal. All you dating folks can rejoice in the freshness and excitement, but what about the married? The folks in long term relationships? Austin Chronicle's Anna Hanks delves into the issue in "The Reason for the Season."

Meanwhile, the folks in Salt Lake City are in turns, blushing with embarrassment over the Olympic controversy, giggling about their leaders getting caught with their pants down, and pondering the lasting impact the scandal will have. Salt Lake City Weekly's D.P. Sorensen explores the Mormon Church's possible outlook on the whole turn of events in "Prostitution vs. Polygamy."

Also in News & Opinion this week: online shopping, witnessing heinous crimes, un-stinking the dog after a horrible skunk accident, and the latest from the automotive world.
