LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

W ith summer nearly over, our featured article is particularly apropos. After all your travelling is done, it's what you bring home that keeps your trip fresh in your mind. Memphis Flyer's Paul Gerald reminisces with the cheap trinkets he's brought home and brings us a charming article.

And what vacation trip is complete without sending postcards to friends and family? Margaret Regan of the Tucson Weekly reports on a show at Arizona Historical Society entitled, "Lines Drawn in Sand and Water: Postcards from the Mexican-American Border." The show graphically demonstrates how arbitrary the border between the two nations really was and how it has changed over the years.

So now your vacation is over and it's time to go back to college. In Food and Drink, Metro Pulse's Adrienne Martini addresses the common meal for EveryStudent in "Ramen Memories." It's a veritable historical tour of those damn noodles!!!!
