LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he keyword for this week in Arts & Leisure is variety. You've got a wide spectrum of topics to choose from here, that's for sure...

One man's crusade against the home-smashing, soul-killing gang life in Memphis is told in "No Gangster's Paradise." Chaplain Carl Nelson of the Tennessee Department of Corrections--himself an ex-gang member--is shown talking to some very tough kids in this compelling story.

We have a mini-section on the art and artists of Santa Fe. From the paintings of Taos artist, Agnes Martin to Robert Baird's story on Santa Fe's summer opera festival, the section offers a fresh look at this New Mexico bastion of Art.

Kevin Franklin tells us what to do if we're bitten by a poisonous snake in "Bite Fright." In "Pantry Shelf," NewCityChicago's Ray Pride reviews a whole slew of new cooking books. Dig in.
