LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

D eep from the Heart of Texas, this week's first feature looks at a topic near and dear to the region: cheerleading. You're probably thinking this is going to be a puff piece. It's not. FW Weekly's P.A. Humphrey takes a local look at this "sport".

Paralleling the feature in our News & Opinion section, the ACLU is hard at work in New Mexico fighting for your rights on the Internet. An injunction has held up a new state law banning 'net material that could be "harmful to a minor". The law.....and the struggle have far reaching implications for all Internet users. Angie Drobnic reports.

How do you join Mensa? How difficult are the tests? One Memphis Flyer writer went to find out and gives us the story.

Plus news on the new Windows '98, school newspaper Web sites, and more...
