LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he Clinton-Lewinski-Starr juggernaut rolls on and we've got lots of angles on it this week. So much so that we've dedicated a special section to cigars, depositions, and the running of the bull. Get the scoop from The Boston Phoenix, Salt Lake City Weekly, and a couple of looks from Memphis Flyer and Nashville Scene gives us three looks at the situation.

George Wallace was the 60's embodiment of racial intolerance. Now that he's gone, his firebrand style seems to have garnered him respect from whites and blacks alike. What's up with that? John Bridges from Nashville Scene shares memories from his Alabama childhood.

Elsewhere we take a look at the end of the world, our national parks, extremists wanting you to clean up your act, and a proposed reason to get up in the mornings.
