A note from the editor.

Politicos, Thieves and Crappy Crooners 

On Aug. 11--a week from the day this paper officially hits the stands--it's voting time, baby.

Early voting time, that is, for this year's municipal primary election. Democrats and independents in Ward 6 have a choice between two candidates, Nina Trasoff and Steve Farley. This is an important election, as it will determine who faces off in the general election against Fred Ronstadt, who has the distinction of being dissed by his cousin, Linda Ronstadt. She endorsed Nina Trasoff.

Aren't politics fun? Read about the election hijinks in our Cover Feature.

Other stuff worth noting ...

· Be sure to check out Media Watch. Walt Nett helps put the pieces together on Ann Coulter and her apparent issues with plagiarism. After reading Walt's column, feel free to ask the following question: How long will the Arizona Daily Star tolerate Coulter, a rude, factually challenged "writer" masquerading as a columnist? We know there are fine conservative columnists out there--and we know she isn't one of them.

· If you see anybody heading north up Interstate 19 on Friday night who looks nauseous, don't worry. It probably just has to do with the fact that Michael Bolton is in town. Read about that (briefly, thank goodness), as well as some music that does not suck, in our Music section.
