LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he McCain candidacy is the best way for liberals to make some noise in 2000, and the man himself is almost beside the point. Plus, a strong showing by McCain would lay the groundwork for a progressive mandate in the near future.

If all things intimate have become mainstream, then wouldn't it follow that strip clubs would have become respectable, a good place to conduct business with the boys?

The past couple of years have seen the romance heat up between mainstream pop culture and all things Asian. The trend extends from the world of haute couture to the schoolyards full of Pokémon cards. But what really stands out, to a lot of Asian-Americans, is the headway being made by Asian actresses.

Plus, coyotes in Tennessee, risking life and limb in national parks, funeral messages, and more.
