From the Editor:
We are gratified by the response to the first two issues. Almost a thousand hits so far: top popular sites may get that much per day or per hour or per second, but we don't aim at mass readership; rather, an intelligent one. We had a steady stream of unsolicited submissions, which make up two thirds of this third issue . In some cases, you may click on the author's name to find a short bio. Of(f)course will forward mail to the authors.
Our regular (may we already use that word?) contributor Melissa Byles has been occupied with her prelims for a Ph.D. in aesthetics; we expect to have her back. Solano Meier, a native of Paraguay and film buff who lives in New York City takes up the critical sting in the meantime.

Mr Clinton said questions to be addressed include these: "What should we do about guns? What should we do about culture?"
