LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A fter you've spent a week in Amsterdam you can forget there's anything else happening in Holland. That would be a shame, because there are other cities in the Netherlands and the Dutch countryside is quite literally another world from Amsterdam.

Forget computer and airplane crashes. When it comes to apocalyptic Y2K predictions, none strikes more fear into the hearts of the multitudes than a projected shortage of champagne.

If your middle-school daughter played football for the school team, how would you handle it? One dad kept a few notes during the season.

Also, looking for "sweets" for the diabetic, homophobes and Shakespeare, and more.
