LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

F rom famine in Timoleague to the tough streets of Philadelphia, the Regans fought to create a better life. The Tucson Weekly's Margaret Regan tells her family's story.

Philip Ray Workman is scheduled to die on April 6, still asserting his innocence in the 1981 murder of a Memphis police officer and claiming he was convicted because of prosecutorial misconduct and perjured testimony.

George W. Bush has a cadre of loyalists who'll stick with him. Now those loyalists have to show they have the right stuff to put their man in the Oval Office.

Also, Ralph Nader runs for president, remembering a voodoo queen, parental stupidity, and more.
