Phillip Moffitt
WELCOME TO the twenty-first annual Dubious Achievement Awards, that time of year when Man at His Best celebrates Man at His Most Absurd. This much-anticipated extravaganza began in 1961 under the editorship of Harold Hayes, who drew on the talents of staffer David Newman and art director Robert Benton to create the format that has evolved into the sideshow found on pages 33 to 42.

ROBERT SAM Anson’s article on my late brother-in-law, Douglas Kenney (“The Life and Death of a Comic Genius,” October), was factual, very moving, and also revealing to me. Doug and I were as close as distance and life-style would allow. I miss him very much.

<p>ASTUTE AND sneering, Albert Goldmans pitilessly detailed Elvis (McGrawHill, $14.95) is a large slice of necrophilic kink&mdash;the Sunset Boulevard of popculture biography. Instead of William Holden floating facedown in a Hollywood pool, Elvis features the king of rock ’n’ roll plodding to his death like a ceremonial elephant, his ruby-encrusted vestments charging the air with glints of royal splendor.</p>

SOMEWHERE ON the Indiana Toll Road, heading east, the sound of the FM radio station began to fade. This was a disappointment; the disc jockey for WVPE in Elkhart had just been exhorting his listeners to send in ten dollars each in an effort to help the station go stereo, and I was listening for an address so I could mail my money.

A WEEK or so before last year’s muscular dystrophy telethon, Jerry Lewis showed up on Phil Donahue’s show for what turned out to be a session marked by surprising rancor. Phil insinuated that the charity industry in this country is an enormous boondoggle, manned largely by the self-interested; Jerry countered that Phil was an unlikable fellow who had not done his homework; a woman in the audience rose to offer her view that telethons were a “zoo” and she could not bear to watch them; “I’ve got to get you an autographed photograph of Eva Braun,” responded Jerry, who a bit later offered up an appreciation of his own humanity.

IT IS a Tuesday morning in January and your alarm clock clicks on. In slow motion, you reach out a hand, hit the snooze button, roll over for more sleep. Six minutes and you’re up again, wondering whether you’re going to do it—force yourself to rise and run a few miles.

Sweaters aren’t just warm and woolly anymore. In recent seasons, richly colored cotton sweaters have proved to be a most wearable alternative. This year’s resort and spring collections offer an abundant crop of cotton sweaters in tempting weights, textures, and styles. Whether weight pullovers, cotton sweaters span the seasons pull the wool over your eyes?

ALL THE days and weeks of the year lead to New Year’s Eve and the great annual accounting we make of our lives. I am preparing mine. This year, for the first time, I’ve: quit a job, published an article, dated a girl who does commercials, played squash, visited a tailor, overdrawn my checking account, stolen a can of tuna fish from a supermarket, driven without a license, applied for a credit card, had a marriage proposal, and bought a television.
