Dear Readers,

These are tense times, and whether we entertain or inform, the Grail is here to provide you with pieces by Reedies, for Reedies. Delve into a revolution-themed musical with Claire’s review of Paris Commune (1) and enjoy some art and poetry (2). Next, Anthony takes us on a view from up high in the mountain range of Cuba to ponder the meaning of revolution in Sierra Maestra (5), and a brief report and images from the protests in Portland last week (6). Then Guananí takes us on a tour of the stockrooms of Reed (7), Shana shows you how to scrounge around for flavorful taco ingredients (12), and Miss Lonely Hearts guides a soon-to-graduate Reedie through a perennially tough question: to stay or to go? (14).

Anton, Claire, and Guananí
