LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

B ored with Y2K doomsayers and high-tech hucksters trying to make a buck by warping our millennial fascinations into silicon silliness? Now try a different kind of apocalypse!

The FCC is finally considering licenses for "pirate" radio stations and microbroadcasting, but the operator of Radio Free Berkeley, who once sued the FCC, is opposing the idea. Confused?

Bill Black is a barber who believes in hair. But not just for cutting. Black says it's an important recyclable, renewable resource, and he's out to convince the world of its usefulness.

Plus, a close shave, some political promises, and more.
