LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

M ona Overstreet is a five-time women's national champion powerlifter and three-time women's world champion. Her story is one of unflagging effort, a pursuit of victory to the exclusion of all those things that we less gifted or determined believe make up a normal life.

Love gone wrong is the great universal theme of human life, and if we insist that turning failed romance into art is an act of betrayal, we would rule out of existence much of Western literature.

The faces -- and music -- of Bob Dylan and Paul Simon provide an unusual counterpoint for the strange collection of images gathered from all over Western civilization and placed in the Nevada desert.

Plus, life in Montana, being bald, chatting with Chuck, and more.
