Editorial Focus

We want anything about the West. West is a bullet-riddled ‘85 Grand Marquis, a gleaming spaceship over Roswell, a cowboy paying for his latte with an Amex-card, an alien wondering where in the world to get the golden iPhone. West is where it hurts, West is the rattlesnake you didn’t hear, the dust storm sanding your car, the champagne underneath the Hollywood sign, the checkout line of a grocery store that doesn’t carry mandarin-orange segments in fruit juice, green-chile and cheese burritos from the 24-hour gas station. West is when there’s no West left. West is where you always wanted to be.
