Since The Sunday, the fledgling weekly from the Greenspun Media Group, debuted in February, one element has been constant amid its sometimes-baffling design, sometimes-gripping journalism (Ed Komenda's excellent report on Bundyville; Jackie Valley's package on heroin): a graphic on the cover touting the value of the coupons within. This week's whopping total: $2,339!* But has every week been so coupontastic? We unleashed the full nutrient-rich, protein-packed, slightly mathy mojo of I, Charticus to find out:
* Of course, of that $2,339 value, $2,000 of it is accounted for by a single coupon, for a dental service offering a discount on braces.

Mix and match elements from the three columns below to find your perfect spring competition!

Readers polled, their obscure answers examined

In an online readers’ poll for February’s upcoming Best of the City issue, we harnessed the awesome power of the Internet to ask you about the valley’s best burgers, best sushi, the best thing about Henderson (it wasn't the sushi) and so forth. And we tossed in a bonus question: The Best! Thing! Ever! In Las Vegas. Because who doesn't want to know that? These are the results we're concerning ourselves with here.
Now, ever is a pretty long time, but many of you rose to that challenge, nominating stalwart features such as the Strip, our groovy weather, all the great dining and the arts scene downtown. Hard to quibble with those selections (more about those in the issue itself). A few of you, on the other hand, offered more … inscrutable suggestions. Below, in handy chart form, we note a few of these offbeat answers and try to parse the mind-set from which they emerged.
Note: Yeah, we know “horn hi yo” is some kind of obscure craps reference. Still sounds like randomly generated syllables to us.
Look for more orthodox survey results in the February Desert Companion, coming out soonish.
