News & Opinion

LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

W ill Hillary Clinton make a run for the U.S. Senate in New York? A trio of stories from the Boston Phoenix takes a look at this electoral exercise, including her "Phantom Menace" campaign, why New York has embraced her, and how she has to walk before she can run.

From politics, to porn. A pair of stories from Knoxville's Metro Pulse make it clear that with the advent of the Internet, people from right next door are getting into the adult entertainment business, not just the folks in New York or Los Angeles.

A couple of Weekly Alibi staff weigh in on international concerns. Noah Masterson suggests that there's more to the current Balkans crisis than we may have known about, and Captain Opinion discusses the Chinese-nuclear secrets issue.

Other features focus on the risk of AIDS among black gays, music in nursing homes, a governor in hot water, and other subjects, while our columnists give us their take on the public airwaves, the border, e-mail, Dads, and more.
