LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T his week's Arts & Leisure section runs off in odd, quirky directions. Hey, it must be that time of the year.

The idea of taboos--within a culture, society, and even between two people--is the topic of Austin Chronicle's Michael Ventura with his "Letters At 3AM." What happens when you're blasting around on your web browser and you misstype a URL? Devin D. O'Leary tells us of some interesting sites you'll find yourself staring at when you do just that in "Typos On the WWW."

Be sure not to miss the Weekly Alibi's report on Olestra--more specifically, the new fat-free potato chip, Wow! You'll bust a gut on this one. (Sorry, I just couldn't help myself.)

Plus reviews of the NYC exhibition of Austinite Jane Jensen's work and more.
