LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A  "script for Oliver Stone's next movie... full of speculation and guesses..." That's what an attorney calls the affidavit that describes how his client and some accomplices kidnapped and murdered Madalyn Murray O'Hair, her son and granddaughter, to steal $600,000 from the atheist organization O'Hair headed.

What began in the '60s as small events for the Civil War centennial has evolved into spectacular military reproductions as passionately played out as a daytime soap. Re-enacting is growing exponentially, in terms of both participants and spectators.

Lamar Alexander says his plan in the Republican presidential primaries is to finish among the top three in Iowa next February, finish in the top two in New Hampshire later that month, and then, he says hopefully, "the money will roll in."

Plus, Walter Jowers takes issue with the saying that "good fences make good neighbors," and more.
