LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

M any of the protestors who were in the streets of Seattle during WTO week hope to remember their action as the start of a new dialogue about change needed in the global economy.

Every July, hundreds of thousands of bikers descending on the dusty little town of Sturgis, South Dakota, for the Mother of all Harley Gatherings, the quasi-religious focus of a biker's year.

Five hundred years after Columbus began the European "invasion" of America, Richard Donaghey and his ensemble -- more than 100 Native American dancers -- have invaded Holland, Belgium and Germany.

Plus, bad fortune in Why, Arizona, Andy Kaufman's partner speaks out, nighttime marketing campaigns, Nashville's favorite morning DJ, and more.
