LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

A re we, as a society, ready to return to the days of hunting and gathering? Probably not, says one physician, so it is time to rethink our ideas on nutrition. Austin Chronicle's Anne S. Lewis sits down for a chat with renowned nutritionist James Heffley, Ph.D. in "The Real Road to Wellville."

First it was Prohibition in the 20's creating criminals out of the liquor industry. Now the government is after toilet makers and contractors. What's this country coming to? Read more in "Potty Politics" from Nashville Scene's Walter Jowers.

Weekly Alibi publisher Chris Johnson takes a look at the hack job Time magazine did on the relationship between the state of New Mexico and Intel. In the typical style of the mainstream press, Time gathered the easy facts and left the real reporting out of the mix. Read more in "Trashing Time."

Also this week in News & Opinion; PhreakNic '98, used-car warranties and a look at John Glenn's space trip on the Web.
