Volume II, Issue 42
April 12 - April 19, 1999  
 
LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

B aseball is the theme this week in Arts & Leisure. Three columnists explore what is ruining the sport in America. First up is Nashville Scene's Randy Horick, who has a list of five problems to solve in the big leagues to get back on the right track. Tucson Weekly's Tom Danehy follows that up with a proposition of his own on three small conditions that would make him a fan again. Meanwhile, Tucson Weekly's Jeff Smith can't figure out why any team would let Garth Brooks squeeze into a baseball uniform--probably the same folks that encouraged Michael Jordan to give the diamond a try.

Stage performances, wine, and more round out this week's section.
