LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

S ettle down, Beavis! Trash culture is on the rise once again, as Metro Pulse's Coury Turczyn illustrates in "Roll 'Em!", a free-wheeling take on the rebirth of Roller Derby. And in "The End of Everything That Ever Happened," Memphis Flyer's Chris Davis essays the monster truck phenomenon.

In "The Good Fight," Austin Chronicle's Bryan Mealer gets ready to rumble with Joe Vela, a former Golden Gloves champ who uses the lure of the ring to keep troubled teens off the street. The story finds that Austin Boxing Against Drugs isn't such ABAD idea.
