LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

W e have a recreation mixed bag this week. First off is a look at the glory that is college basketball March Madness in Las Vegas in "Viva Madness." Next up is a look at the down and dirty of competitive Scrabble from Newcity Chicago's Ben Winters. Wrapping up recreation is a tour through some on Washington D.C.'s newest monuments in "Hard to Find, Hard to Forget."

Spring is the time for special religion-oriented cooking. This week we take a look at kosher preparation and certification, as well as a new cookbook on foods from the Holy Land.

Performance reviews this week look at "Romeo and Juliet" at the ballet, the rock and roll that is "Riverdance," and the future of 3D theater.
