LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T his joint's chock full this week. Hmmmm, must be summer or something.....

As the World Cup is nearing the finals, soccer continues to be an ongoing topic. The rest of the world celebrates the sport and the World Cup is the ultimate competition. Where does the U.S. stand in it and should we care? Boston's Jeffrey Gantz takes a look.

Speaking of passionate sports, let's not forget minature golf. You can have your World Cup--here it's a man against a windmill (or a dinosaur or a castle). Knoxville's Coury Turczyn tells the whole rugged story of one man's struggle with the beast that is minigolf .

In the performance spotlight--Chicago has interactive theater, but how much is too much interactivity with the audience? Carl Kozlowski takes a look at Chicago's Royal George Theatre and you get to decide.

Plus Prison Inmates discover the WWW, a Chicago airport lounge with a Hawaiian revue, and a lot more craziness.
