LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

Y uppies have been replaced. Austin Chronicle's Anna Hanks shows us the new improved model, SYMPLES. Meanwhile, Nashville Scene's Margaret Renkl looks at the role our careers play in public perception of us.

In Recreation this week, Nashville Scene's Randy Horick shares with us the absurdity of college football's new Bowl Championship Series and Memphis Flyer's Paul Gerald shows us the bargain hunter's way to travel via the Internet in "Cyber Savings."

Wrapping things up, explore the experience of performing in front of 115 of your peers to duel it out for one job, and take a peek at performances of "Medea," "The Trip to Bountiful," and "Another Part of the Forest."
