LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

C omputer gaming used to be just about boys. Strange, geeky boys. But the industry is changing, and girls are finding their way to computer game consoles in increasing numbers. This doesn't mean, however, that women are any less objectified on the game screen.

The Nashville Scene offers one final installment of the century's sports superlatives that you're not likely to find on other, more respectable lists.

How do you come up with a subject that hasn't already had a dozen Web sites dedicated to it? Fake it! You can find dozens of Web sites dedicated to books, movies, TV shows, celebrities and products that don't even exist.

Plus, a visit to Salt Lake City, a selection of books for people who like to cook, farewell, Charles Barkley, and more.
