Growing up in Harlem in the late '80s and early '90s, Shemekia Copeland heard hip-hop up and down the block. Her friends were digging Kool Moe Dee and LL Cool J. But the latest sounds in urban music didn't really move the future blues belter. "I remember wanting to go inside and play my Koko Taylor records," says Copeland. "I feel like I was born in the wrong time." One listen to any of her four solid albums on Alligator Records, and you wonder whether the artist has lived here before.

Chicago. -- In San Francisco recently, ex-governor Jerry Brown was trying to explain why his opposition to the North American Free Trade Agreement is different from Ross Perot's opposition to it. Mr. Perot thinks NAFTA will make Americans lose jobs. Mr. Brown thinks it will make America lose its soul.We need to put our own house in order, he argues. American jobs have already gone south of the border, not because of stated trade policies, but because we do not insist on equitable labor policies here.

Man alone is either a God or a demon.-- Robert BurtonI WONDER if there is a deep affinity between each of us and some particular landscape.Some discover it early on. Others search in vain their entire lives. We all would do well to find out, as soon as possible, what kind of landscape is ours. And if we should be lucky enough, we must be equally adept at discovering when the contours of the landscape begin to shift, for that change is usually indicative of a larger metamorphosis within.I have begun this evening to think of the relationship of geography to the soul, as I sit on a wind-swept porch at the beginning of the summer season.
