How did a little sin like envy get such a bad reputation?

LAURENCE SHAMES
INVIDIA, THE early Christians called it, and they thought enough of its potency to include it in that select list of mortal faults for which one would go straight to hell. Envy is the name it goes by among us—and while we no longer consign those possessed by it to the nether regions, there’s no question that being in the grip of it can create a hell right here on the surface.

ALLEN BARRA
SPORTS MEDICINE is growing so quickly it may someday become as big a business as sport itself. And yet, despite the insatiable appetite of athletes for more information on the subject, the American sports establishment has shown remarkably little interest in a branch of sports medicine—the Eastern variety—whose foundations were laid way back when Hippocrates was making house calls.

Barbara Kevles
If you’re tired of the shorter races, like the traditional five-miler or the newer “10K,” and seek more adventure and excitement in racing the roads, consider the challenge of toughing it through the 26.2-mile marathon. For a minimum training investment of fifty miles a week for two months, you can pick from some four hundred marathons held annually in the United States or choose one in exotic cities like Paris, Rome, Stockholm, or Shanghai.

The Seersucker Suit

John Berendt
When it was introduced in America around the turn of the century, seersucker was the lightest, coolest, and cheapest fabric for summer suits. It still is. Nonetheless, back then it provoked one of those hateful middle-class-snob rejections—not so much because it was an oddly puckered cloth, though that was part of it, but because it was so cheap.

Anthologies of proverbs and dictionaries of quotations are a dime a dozen, but where does one turn for the nitty-gritty advice that your friend, father, or analyst might offer? Should you buy the motorcycle your neighbor is selling cheap? Billy Rose, if he were there, might say, “Never invest in anything that eats or needs repairing.”

The latest rumble, however faint, is that croquet—yes, croquet—is coming back. It may never arrive, but the game is gradually extricating itself from a ruinous association with corseted ladies and with gentlemen named Percy and Reginald who dressed in blazers and straw boaters and took tea between shots.

Geoffrey Norman
There is a simple reason for having a picnic: You have to eat. And sometimes you find yourself in a place where either there is nothing to eat or what there is to eat isn’t fit. So you bring your own. If you have gotten yourself someplace where there is no food at all—up on a mountain or out on a river—then your needs are fairly simple.

Rum is heat. Made primarily in the Caribbean from the sugarcane that is grown there in abundance, it is associated in our minds with seascapes, white-hot beaches, steamy tropical hotel rooms with slowly turning ceiling fans. Rum is the scalding stuff that fortified English sailors against sea squalls.

I am leaping, diving, flailing, yet I can barely get a piece of the ball. Hopman, meanwhile, keeps up a kind of obbligato: “Come on, move! Watch the ball when you hit it! You’re too close in! Get ready! Here’s one to your backhand!”</p>

<p>AT THE END. AFTER THE thermonuclear war between the Djanks and Druzhkies, in consequence of which they had destroyed themselves and, insanely, all other inhabitants of the earth, God spoke through a glowing crack in a bulbous black cloud to Calvin Cohn, the paleologist, who of all men had miraculously survived in a battered oceanographic vessel with sails, as the swollen seas tilted this way and that.</p>

THEIR CLUBHOUSE sits squarely on the site of the old town dump, and several tons of fill cannot quite cover the occasional rusting frame of a discarded washing machine or fifty-five-gallon drum. The members of the Veazie Salmon Club don&rsquo;t mind one bit.
