LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

D eath and taxes. The two things we can all count on. Ever wonder how much of your work life is dedicated to paying those taxes? Ever wonder if death is the better option? Read all about it "Taxes and More Taxes!" from Weekly Alibi's Dennis Domrzalski.

Weekly Alibi's Captain Opinion is looking for some answers in the case of the President and his relationship with the country. With the recent revelations in the Wall Street Journal about a decades old incident with Juanita Broaddrick, is it an easy jump to believe he went from overzealous swinger to rapist? Explore the issue in "Do We Care About Rape?"

Is information knowledge? If so, then computer and 'Net literate folks are way ahead in the game. Some would suggest that not only must you have information to gain knowledge but have the ability to consider that information and sift it through the mind--something that happens in large part through the arts. Austin Chronicle's Michael Ventura pursues this line of analysis in "Letters at 3 AM."

Also in News & Opinion this week, coupon "clipping" on the 'Net, the 10-10-220 phone deal, media analysis, and more.
