LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

K ate Messer of the Austin Chronicle decided to bail out of a perfectly good plane at 13,500 feet. What was she thinking? Not much since it took very little time for her to hit the ground. Find out more in "The Color of My Parachute."

Tucson Weekly's Tom Danehy reflects on the life on sport writer Jim Murray, who passed away a little over a week ago. Murray was a longtime columnist for the LA Times, and master of the one-liner. Take a trip through the past with Tom.

Closing out Arts & Leisure, we have a look at the beauty of the WNBA game. Randy Horick of Nashville Scene revels in the women's unselfish play and the amazing crowds who show up even for losing teams. Find out more in "Girls With Attitude." Plus several reviews of gallery showings and stage performances.
