LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A fter seven years of waiting for a trial to answer key questions relating to the Branch Davidian clash at Waco, the public and the press were forbidden to question jurors or even learn their names. The disappearance of the jury at the end of the hotly contested civil case added yet another measure of ambiguity to the Waco controversy.

Democrats may not have wanted to party with Hugh Hefner at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles, but the media types covering the convention sure did. The Memphis Flyer's Ashley Fantz made her way into the lair, only to discover...

The biggest obstacle keeping Barbie from sashaying into the Oval Office is her reputation for seeming wooden. Or at least plastic. But she's no stiffer than that guy from Tennessee.

Also, Judge Joe Brown eyes higher office from his TV bench, tribes are split by the U.S.-Mexico border, and more.
