WE THOUGHT YOU COULD USE A gift about now. Let’s face it. Between the bimbos and the Bakkers, the Gulf and the sky, Meese and Reagan, North and Hart—not to mention the departure of Shelley Long from Cheers—this was one hell of a year. If our faith in our fellow man wasn’t entirely shaken, it certainly got cuffed around a bit.

THAT ESQUIRE IS THE MOST INTRIGUING, SELF-ASsured, and human magazine a man in America can read today is, in my mind, indisputable. Rereading last summer’s issue on the American Male, 1946-1986, has confirmed this fact in my mind once again.

Charles Leocha
Like most essential pieces of sports apparatus, skis are wrapped in mystique. Really, who knows what makes one tennis racket better than another? Why does one set of golf clubs surpass the rest? In choosing skis, though, there is a slight difference.

John Berendt
For all you need to know about the definitive motorcycle jacket and how to wear it, take a look at Marlon Brando in the 1953 movie The Wild One. He plays the leader of a motorcycle gang and wears a lustrous, heavy-duty black leather jacket that has all the requisite features: epaulets, metal snaps, belted waist, zippered forearms, and an oversize zipper running at an angle up the front.

William Grimes
Champagne must have bubbles—that much is indisputable. But how many and how assertive? The modern taste requires corks that can knock ceiling tiles loose, unleashing enough foam to fill a laundromat. But it wasn’t always that way. Today’s Jacuzzi in a glass would have looked positively hazardous to the champagne drinker of two centuries ago, when even a mild fizz was controversial.

Two nonswimmers who burn under a reading lamp find themselves in midwinter baking on the beaches of Barbados. To escape the locals solicitously hawking milky aloe vera in rum bottles, they drag their reddened bodies into a rented Mini Moke and jolt up the Platinum Coast.

IN 1956, AT THE AGE OF NINE, I SAT at the breakfast table one morning babbling on and on about Elvis Presley, whom I had just seen on The Ed Sullivan Show. My father ate his cereal in silence. I kept talking about Elvis. Finally my father interrupted me in mid-sentence.

THE FLYER STUCK TO THE WALL OF a stupa in Durbar Square in Katmandu said MEET-GREET MOTHER TERESA. BLESSINGS-AUTOGRAPHS. I wasn’t doing anything that afternoon and figured it would be a kick to meet-greet a living saint and get her blessing-autograph.

Donald R. Katz
The mysterious Mr. George Soros, known as the world’s greatest money manager, has long been an entirely different sort of money man. If you'd been lucky enough to find yourself with a spare hundred grand back in 1969, and if you’d had the foresight to invest it with the nascent investment fund Soros formed that year, that $100,000, at the end of last year, would have been worth (get out the cold compresses) just under twenty-three-and-a-half million dollars.

You're the master of your own fate, captain of your own destiny. Whatever you’ve attempted, you’ve achieved ... except for one teensy failure. You’ve never figured out how to get an edible meal on an airplane. Now it’s become an obsession, befouling your disposition, poisoning your thoughts, consuming you from within.

Conformity is an inconstant god, bloodthirsty at times, indolent at others. Some guys get the ice pick because they refuse to eliminate their doggie photos from their desk tops, while others wipe the halls with their drooling psyches and get away with it.

Comprehensive longterm medical insurance is the single most important form of insurance you can buy. Without it, one major illness could mean the difference between financial health and bankruptcy. Yet surprisingly, 35 to 37 percent of Americans have no health insurance of any kind.

A laptop PC looks as cute as a puppy, and without the right software to drive it, it’s about as useful. Thankfully, Office Solutions Madison, Wisconsin, has come up with software specifically designed for the laptop. Their Office Writer Express combines in one package the two most crucial functions for the businessman on the go: word processing and intercomputer communication.

THERE IS NEVER FIGURING A YEAR in sports before it starts. You think you can predict what’s going to happen, the next thing, you’ll be trying to figure out what ever happened to William “Refrigerator” Perry. No one ever knows. No one knew that Larry Bird would be criticized for being white, that baseball bats would be CAT-scanned, that Sports Illustrated would put pit bulls on the cover, that Lawrence Taylor, the writer, would recommend golf as a cure for cocaine; maybe that’s what they need in the South Bronx, miniature golf on every corner.

I HAVE BEEN REREADING TWO OF THE best-selling books of 1987. Each was a sleeper whose success astonished both authors and publishers. One book is The Closing of the American Mind by Allan Bloom, a longtime professor of social thought, a teacher at the University of Chicago, and a translator of Plato’s Republic.

Our 1985 profile of Wall Street Wunderkind Lewis Ranieri shocked the banking community with its disclosure that Salomon Brothers chairman John Gutfreund had put Ranieri “on the short list of potential future chairmen.” A year later he became vice-chairman, and then last summer rocked the financial world again, this time by suddenly and unexpectedly resigning his post.

ELLIOT ABRAMS, 1984 honoree. Last summer admitted soliciting a $10 million “donation” from the Sultan of Brunei for the Nicaraguan contras; shielded Oliver North’s covert role. MARTIN A. SIEGEL, 1984 honoree. Forced to pay back $9 million for tax evasion and colluding with Ivan Boesky et al, after heading up one of last winter’s most egregious Wall Street insider-trading scams.

But back on the bookshelf were classics galore, Teeming with faith, hope, and humor and more— All the right thoughts for a holiday season But much less familiar, and thereby more pleasin’.

It was a comfortable confinement in a pretty penitentiary, a sprawling, solitary retreat hidden in hickory woods off a winding road that begins at the back of the Howard Johnson's parking lot and climbs past resort condos and the fancier estates of Gatlinburg’s rich and famous.</p>

A big bowl of hot popcorn, Chinatown simmering on the VCR, and thou beside me on the couch ... hey, nowhere is it written that higher culture has to be hard.

As for chitchatting my physiological bona fides, my regime, pulse rate at rest, systolic upper (let’s talk through the roof), and diastolic lower (shoot the moon), my SGOT abnormalities, the uric acid settled in gouty crystals at my extremities—would I impose the particulars?</p>

This is not science fiction. This is science. It may look like science fiction, but that’s mainly to get your attention. And to make a point: that there are certain borders to the realm of cynicism and doubt—even the kind we may have felt this year—and science can still be one of them.
