This space is usually used to say some of the funny things that come to mind while we are writing the issue. However, during the production of this issue, one of our favorite musicians succumbed to a long bout with cancer and passed away. Therefore, we are not feeling very funny. This goes out to Frank Zappa - a musical genius and wonderful human being. You will be missed. Everybody hold your lighters high.
