LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T here's something decidedly surreal about this week's articles and profiles. Picture a hot summer day without a lot of air moving. You can hear some poor devil mowing a lawn down the street. Your mind wanders.....

And won't let you write that Great American Novel you've been working on. You're suffering writer's block. More specifically, Tracy Jones talks about trying to blow through that frustrating, invisible wall in Unblocking The Block.

Meanwhile, Weekly Alibi's Devin D. O'Leary goes retro back to the swingin' 60's and reports on three web sites celebrating the decade. Joey Heatherton, Martin Denny, The Rat Pack, lava lamps, Ann-Margaret--yeah, they're all here. Groovy, baby!

Plus this week we have special sections on grilling and--believe it or not--Soccer. (Ed. note: Clue: the World Cup has been over for a few weeks now.)
