LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

E ven though most people have never heard of freshwater jellyfish, the creatures have a lot in common with the average vacationer. On the emerald surface of mountain lakes, both appear in one gelatinous mass during the hottest days of summer.

Because girls don't play basketball above the rim, they're forced to concentrate on the basics of the game -- like practicing free throws, running patterned offenses, looking for back-door cutters, making routine shots... executing the fundamentals.

There's something suspicious about Twinkies -- those spongy, golden cakes -- that makes you wonder if they'll survive alongside roaches after a nuclear fallout.

Also, girls on skateboards, and more.
