LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A t Yee-Haw Industrial Letterpress, the machines don't dryly huff or cast scanner beams; they clank and kerchunk and roll bright hues of ink onto thick sheets of chipboard and fibrous paper.

Surely the American women's winning the World Cup in soccer was a good thing, changing the way the world looks at women's sports forever? That's one view. Another view would be that "it's just soccer."

These days, if you sign up for Little League, you play. It doesn't matter if you've never held a ball or a bat or don't know which base is first base. If you show up for a game, you'll play at least an inning.

Also, straightening out the NBA, and exploring German identity with art.
