LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T his week's Arts & Leisure Recreation section has several unique takes on sports, starting with "In the Zone," Jeff Smith's musings on the World Series. Chicago Newcity's Frank Sennett takes us on a "sinners" version of the Chicago Marathon. Lastly, we take a look at a lesser explored version of fight fixing in "The Mayor of Palookaville" from Tom Scocca at Boston Phoenix.

Memphis Flyer's C.D. Wolder talks to a former New York assistant district attorney about how he made the transition to starring in a production of "Chicago." More about local and touring productions in the Performance section, including a ballet version of Robin Hood.

The Gallery section this week includes looks at a Titanic museum in Halifax, the work of Lewis Carroll, and a unique outdoor display space in New Mexico.
