Friends, Romans, V-Readers,

Although this week’s theme is somewhat looser than issues past, we are proud to report that The V have not lost sight of this magazine’s established staples: crime, alcohol and guns. Sometimes we stray from the path, but we never lose sight of what’s truly important.

While the 2011 legislature is a bit overzealous in their budget cuts, they’ve made time to commemorate a deadly firearm. Big Dane Startup of ABG’s libation emporium made time to not only pour beers but also feed the body with something a little more substantial than hops and barley.  The V requests that readers glean from this issue a maintained perspective of what’s truly important—Crime, alcohol and guns…and other stuff…we suppose.

Let the good times roll,

John-Ross Boyce and Nadia Ashtawy
Editors of the V
