LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T his week there's a damn crazy quilt of topics and articles in Art & Leisure!

What? You need examples here? Okay. First off, Memphis Flyer's Meredith Pierce brings us to "Barbie Nation: An Unauthorized Tour," the PBS documentary airing this week. Filmmaker Susan Stern has apparently done an amazing job detailing the history and social impact of what is probably the most successful doll in modern history.

Kim Mellen of the Austin Chronicle is on a Road Trip of the Third Kind when she visits Roswell, New Mexico in I Am Going to Outer Space. Meanwhile, Memphis Flyer writer, Elizabeth Lemond travels to learn to love rodeo in Sitting Bull & Crazy Horse.

America's place in the sport of soccer and World Cup "fever" (or lack thereof) is again addressed in two articles. Weekly Alibi's Devin D. O'Leary reports on WWW sites with a decidedly "summer" theme: barbecue.

Speaking of food, Austin's Pableaux Johnson presents a list and short review of scientifically-slanted cook books--ones that explain the "why" as much as the "how." Look into Culinary Laboratory.
