LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

I n 10 or 15 minutes, it's done. The pain is like somebody with sharp little fingernails pinching the same spot over again. A longer session under the needle to get a tattoo could be excruciating, not from the pain itself but from the relentlessness of it.

Professional cooking is a male-dominated sport. Though 45 percent of people working in the culinary industry are women, they hold less than 10 percent of the top positions.

Two Austin artists have previously explored the emigrant existence and the tension it fosters between past and present, presence and absence, longing and belonging, and now these are also the source for the artists' first joint project.

Also, traveling Highway 395 in California, and more.
