Issue: September 29, 2011

Hi everybody,

War is hell, and hell is stinky periods of boredom punctuated by moments of sheer terror. In this week's cover story, pilot and surgical tech Paul Graham details some of his hellish adventures in Afghanistan. In this week's news story, Dennis Myers examines the aftermath and controversy surrounding the violent incidents at last week's Street Vibrations motorcycle festival. In Arts&Culture, we meet a long-ass cat. And for 15 Minutes, I interviewed wry comedian Steven Wright. Be sure to pick up a paper copy of the paper for

exclusive cartoons and columns.

Thanks for reading! If it weren't for you, we'd probably have to write more cat stories.
