LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

H ave you figured out your vacation yet? If not, Weekly Wire certainly isn't the best guide you could read, and probably isn't even a good one. But we do offer some rare travel tidbits that you won't find anywhere else.

If you're gay and you've always wanted to visit Reykjavík, for example, we've got a story that can tell you all about it. You heard me right -- queerwise (is that a word?), Iceland is where it's at.

Or, if you've always wanted to crawl around in tunnels full of Krazy Straws and bacon, you'll definitely want to read this article about a gargantuan cave in Nevada. Alright, so they're really stalagtites and other natural formations -- the author still says they look like Krazy Straws and bacon. And at a steady 50 degrees, this spelunking Sizzlean may be the best method yet for escaping the summer heat.

Unfortunately, if your idea of a vacation is playing thousands of video games with your geeky friends, you're too late for the convention written up in this story. But it still offers a great overview of the state of the art in high-adrenaline electronic time-killing. What's this? Girls in tight clothing blowing away psycho space bunnies? You can't beat that.

Naturally you'll want some sort of incredibly weird chilled beverages to keep you cool during your travails. You're in luck: A Utah writer skipped his daily regimen of buttermilk spiked with Alka Seltzer so he could write reviews of some truly odd libations. God bless him. Pepsi is for punks.
