what's inside

By Shane Goodman Publisher/Editor

The circle continues

When solutions are created, often times more problems arise. And the circle continues. Just a few decades ago, discussion of the technology we use today was something only in Dick Tracy comics. But as people of all ages use computers more, play video games and text as means of doing business and recreating, injuries are following. Are these pains over exaggerated? Or are these real injuries that are a result of repetitive motions? And is there a remedy? Reporter Matt Miller interviews those who are treating the pain and the players in this week’s cover story.

While we are on the subject, Matthew Scott Hunter critiques “Assassin’s Creed II” in our “Sore Thumbs” video review this week. And Laura Flaugher reviews the book “The Street of a Thousand Blossoms.”

Walt Shotwell asks if Iowa is headed back to the death penalty in our guest commentary, while Doug Burns says Marco Rubio is the Republican to watch in “Political Mercury.”

Matt Miller tells us about big man Earl Barron of the Iowa Energy in “Locker Room,” and Michael Swanger offers details of the 2009 Crossroads Entertainment & Art Experience in “Scene Scribe.”

Jim Duncan tells us why 2009 is the year of the Caribbean dance club in “Food Dude” while Jared Curtis takes us to Bondurant at The Wooden Nickel in “Belly Up.”

You will find all this and much more. Thanks for reading. CV
