THERE IS an important postscript that belongs on Christopher Buckley’s “The Wall” (September). It is simply that had Jan Scruggs given ground on half the delays demanded by critics of the Wall, there would never have been a Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

IF THERE were an Esquire Register to honor those men and women who make outstanding contributions to the Esquire Register, this year’s gold cluster would go to Burr Leonard. Leonard came to work for the magazine in May 1984 as manager of the Esquire Register, and with a daunting enough job description: to keep the Register search going full time; to seek out close to five thousand qualified candidates a year; to design and maintain a data base of nominees both past and future.

WE WERE sitting in his living room just across the Golden Gate Bridge in Sausalito, a little hill town over-looking San Francisco Bay. It was one of those scenic northern California afternoons, clean and beautiful. The man sitting across from me was looking out the window at the sailboats moving below like white specks on the quiet water of the bay.

Prima Ballerina: As Juliet in the American Ballet Theater’s spring production of Romeo and Juliet, twenty-year-old Bonnie Moore of New York emerged as a major talent in the world of dance. A corps member of the ABT, Moore gave a performance that led a New York Times critic to write, “As the youngest Juliet of all in Romeo and Juliet, she is completely at ease, far above the crowd.”

On an otherwise bleak, fogbound afternoon a year ago November, twenty or so men and women gathered in a domed portrait gallery at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco. They were an odd lot. There was a wiry, street-smart black man who ran a counseling program in the city’s slums.

The story of our cities is not a tale of unmitigated decline and despair. In America’s most dilapidated industrial areas, signs of life, or its reasonable facsimile, art, have lately appeared. American sculptors and painters are displaying a fascination for what’s become known as the art of public spaces.

FRANK CONROY
<p>“I’m very interested in technique,” Peter Serkin says as he goes to the piano. His tone of voice conveys a certain quiet relish, as if to say that interpretation is paramount, but the immediate, practical, physical questions of technique are more fun to talk about.</p>

ON JUNE 7 AT 3:30 A. M., Yuko Katsumura was already in the hotel lobby, bubbling with excitement. A sunny, bouncy woman of twenty-nine, she was Rick Smolan’s translator and general, all-purpose uplifting spirit, and on this morning, the morning they had been waiting for for six weeks, she was to get her very first helicopter ride.

HIS HUMOR is wry, partisan, and caustically combative. The satirical eye behind the comic strip Doonesbury, Garry Trudeau is America’s most mirthful, cutting chronicler of these times. The strip’s circulation has swollen to almost 850 daily papers, and its readership is currently estimated at seventy million.

Charles Siebert
“A guy sits alone onstage in a spotlit chair, tells you his life story, then flicks his hands a couple of times to let you know it’s a dance.” That’s how twenty-nine-year-old choreographer Mark Morris describes what’s wrong with a lot of current modern dance.

<p>When the atomic age was still a crawler, Ray Bradbury wrote a story, “There Will Come Soft Rains,” about the end of the world as displayed in a California house of the future. The family had been disintegrated by a bomb blast. But the house chirped away, with automated voices announcing the time, date, and various reminders to the empty rooms.</p>

It’s a good thing that Lyn Abramson is a cheerful person, because she spends her days and nights plumbing the depths of depression. A psychology professor at the University of Wisconsin, Abramson’s revolutionary reevaluation of the nature of depression has helped change the way the condition is perceived medically.

JOHN TIERNEY
Starley Thompson is working on what is probably the most complicated single problem in the world, but it has the virtue of being easy to understand. A layman can appreciate what he is up against by contemplating a simple question—an updated version of the old philosophical query about whether a falling tree makes a sound if nobody hears it.

DAVID NOONAN
In the end, it is attention to detail that makes all the difference. It’s the center fielder’s extra two steps to the left, the salesman’s memory for names, the lover’s phone call, the soldier’s clean weapon. It is the thing that separates the winners from the losers, the men from the boys, and, very often, the living from the dead.

Atomic physicists are a formidably strange lot, and no subgroup among them is more puzzling, or more formidable in their way, than those who design nuclear weapons. The best exemplar of this truth was Robert Oppenheimer, onetime undergraduate poet and student of Hindu philosophy, who guided America’s first A-bomb into being at the Los Alamos lab and then, not many years after stood wrongly accused of Communist espionage.

As a well-spoken, conservatively turned-out lawyer with a degree from the University of Texas, Ruben Bonilla Jr. might have settled safely into an established firm, all the more secure for being the token Mexican American. Instead, he has chosen to fight fiercely against that kind of complacency and tokenism as a leader of the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC).

<p>When Robert Bowman flew to Lansing to become Michigan’s treasurer, the state’s bond rating was “Baa,” as in baad—lowest in the nation. The Motor State had recently been forced to beg a $500-million loan guarantee from a group of Japanese banks just to float short-term notes—Nissan and Toyota must have been yukking it up good over that.</p>

In a tunnel under his grandfather’s house in Dayton years ago, there dwelt “the Claw,” a sort of Talbott family pet monster. Mark Talbott’s older brothers invented the Claw. But Mark embroidered and stage-managed the fairy tale. He brought friends down into the dark crawl space to show them the Claw’s “eggs”— tennis balls arranged under a piece of cloth.
