LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

Q uintessential Parisian painter, Edgar Degas often called himself "almost a son of Louisiana." This summer, the city of his mother's birth welcomes the artist home again with an exhibition of the works Degas created while living in New Orleans.

Apparently there are Memphises in Florida, Texas, Missouri, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, two in Alabama, and one in Mississippi.

On a good Friday night, you might have three, maybe four holes-in-one at a Putt-Putt course. The professionals make them frequently, effortlessly. Professionals?

Plus, power lifting in the parking lot, striking umpires, and more.
