LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he most astonishing revelation to be found in Napster's cyberspace is the spectacle of free music evolving into a new paradigm of free speech. Digital downloading could mean big changes for the music industry, as the furor over Napster may just be a smokescreen to cover up what's really wrong.

With sales now topping one million albums and a recent deal with EMI, Grapetree Records is living up to its self-billing as "The World's #1 Christian Rap Label."

Also, covering Christian heavy metal, Salvador inherits the earth, the Mavericks' Nick Kane gets fired, and more.
