Edward Hoagland (“Shhh! Our Writers Are Sleeping!” July) states that writers have fallen into a “moral coma.” We find his stand on the issue of AIDS immoral and dangerous.

MY NEWS IS THAT IN ANOTHER month I will be departing for London to help start a British edition of Esquire. And while leaving the mother ship and its crew is saddening—I will make my formal farewells next issue—the opportunity ahead has me utterly elated.

First, you must arrange to arrive at night. That way, you can look out your window in the morning and cry, “God’s teeth!” You have slept, it will be clear, in the valley of some divine mouth, some ancient orthodontic temple carved wholly out of cinnabar and rust.

MAKE THINGS little and they change big. Make a thing you can use one-handed, and things can get out of hand. Shrink the two-handed sword down to the cavalry saber, and the course is irrevocably set toward the Charge of the Light Brigade. Create the baseball glove so guys can pick it in the pocket, and a process is set in motion that climaxes with Ozzie Smith suspended in midair at the peak of an aerial somersault.

LUBA PETROVA Harrington was a short, roundish, gypsy sort of a woman with huge eyes and a broad smile. When I met her in New York twenty-five years ago, she was married to the novelist Alan Harrington. She’d taught Russian at Yale and had lived the dolce vita in Rome.

ONCE, IT WAS the scoutmaster—that great lost role model of American male socialization— who taught you how to cook, and what he cooked in was iron. With a skillet or Dutch oven he could make almost anything.

OCCASIONAL decadence is good for the soul. That’s why at least once a year, when the desire to sin becomes unbearable, a group of us gather at my friend Mazzeo’s cabin in Michigan’s north woods. The Maz is a surgeon whose arteries normally flow as clear as the spring runoff, but he’s now the host of an annual eating ritual that will make the skinless-breast-of-chicken crowd run for cover.

LOUIS, DIZZY, Miles: The impact of each is so huge, you don’t need surnames. They’re the Father, the Son, and the Holy Terror—a trinity so dominant that the simple syllables of their names connote the entire history of the jazz trumpet. The problem with so tidy a construction, though, is that it obscures more than it reveals—implying, for instance, that there was no Roy Eldridge, or no Clifford Brown.

The listing is simple. In the lobby of the building there is the number and then this: ARNOLD (RED) AUERBACH. Take the elevator up and the name is there again on the door to the two-office suite. Auerbach greets you there wearing an Indiana State Police baseball cap.

Always thought it held the seeds of disaster.” Jim Benham, the flamboyant head of Benham Capital Management Group ($6.2 billion under management, all in money-market and bond funds) was sitting in his favorite Palo Alto fish restaurant, digressing.</p>

OH MY GOD, I ate a hot dog. If I die before you read this, ask for the autopsy report. It&rsquo;ll tell you how they found the whole half-ounce of fat in the thing reconstituted as a weenie-shaped plug labeled BALL PARK and jammed into my heart. &ldquo;He shoulda known,&rdquo; the doc will say as he flicks the little blob off a fingertip into the trash.

It seems that we will have to make sense of the 1990s without the elucidative example of Harry Angstrom, the hero of John Updike&rsquo;s Rabbit books, who is pretty clearly a gone bunny at the end of Rabbit at Rest, and whose creator has announced that the series has come to an end.

The gold plating on the term senior citizen has worn thin. And forget such cumbersome phrases as those in the autumn of their lives, those in the sunset years, or the longer living. The leading candidate is chronologically gifted. And if you&#39;re up on your politically correct jargon, you know that older people no longer live in the old folks&#39; home; these days they live in a senior-congregate-living community for the chronologically gifted.

THE BOOK: Landscape Painted with Tea (Knopf, $21.95) THE AUTHOR: Milorad Pavić (MEEH-lowrad PAH-vitch), a Yugoslavian poet and professor of literary history at the University of Belgrade. His previous, Dictionary of the Khazars, a mock-scholarly puzzle of a novel cleverly marketed by Knopf in separate &ldquo;male&rdquo; and &ldquo;female&rdquo; editions, became the most inexplicable success since Umberto Eco&rsquo;s The Name of the Rose.

Transportation advertising...should appeal to man&#39;s desire to see and learn, to enjoy the comforts and educational advantages as well as the excitement of travel. &mdash;Truman A. DeWeese, Practical Publicity, 1906. One hundred years ago, or even twenty, a billboard selling PARIS would have used the Eiffel Tower or the Arc de Triomphe or some other heavy symbol of the actual place.

In our homogenized, white-bread culture, we often look (perhaps patronizingly) to the ethnic margins for energy. Maxine Hong Kingston, Toni Morrison, and Oscar Hijuelos can give our literature a shot in the arm; Spike Lee or Wayne Wang or Robert Townsend can shake up independent filmmaking and rewrite the rules of screen narrative.

It&#39;s obvious that America misses its &#39;70s politicians, which is why it is reinventing them in the &#39;90s.

AT THE TENDER AGE of twenty-eight, Dinesh D&rsquo;Souza has the rare distinction of being a has-been. A few short years ago, in his early twenties, he was a policy adviser in that surreal enclave of Washington history, the Reagan White House. In those days there were so few qualified conservatives that Dinesh, straight out of Dartmouth College, found himself a mere corridor or so from the Oval Office, one of a bevy of blow-dried miniconservatives elevated to a position of power.

It&rsquo;s tough being a talented, gorgeous actress in Hollywood these days. Directors offer you roles, but most of them involve lounging around half nekkid, waiting for the leading man to return from a hard-day&rsquo;s vigilantism. &ldquo;Eight out of ten scripts I get are for roles as the subordinate girlfriend,&rdquo; says twenty-four-year-old Robin Wright, who should not be subordinate to anyone.

How secure are the nation&rsquo;s airports? Against some types of threats, very secure; against others, less so...but ask me again after the conclusion of the Enhanced Security System Demonstration Project at BWI. Management at Baltimore/Washington International Airport is working right now with the FAA and Sandia National Laboratories, the people who provide security technology for America&rsquo;s nuclear weapons at sensitive locations and in transit, on a three-year, $9-million project to find out what type of security works best at domestic airports, and just how much security they can add&mdash;not only at BWI but at airports around the country&mdash;and still get people from point A to point B.

Most L.A. restaurants flare as brightly and sputter out as quickly as Don Johnson’s career. But for all the hype and glitz, the city has many of this country’s finest restaurants. Think of L’Ermitage, Citrus, Chinois on Main, Patina. Sadly, some of these same restaurants go begging for customers, while getting a reservation at a new hot spot in Venice may require a letter of recommendation from Mike Ovitz.

When in doubt, advertise: The Air Line Pilots Association, citing "a feeling the pilot's image had been deteriorating over the years," is creating a radio-and-television advertising campaing to bolster that image. The campaign will trumpet acts of heroism, like the 1989 Sioux City crash landing; Stiller and Meara will not appear as a hilariously drunken cockpit crew.

BRUCE McCALL
Dear Lee, Monday I got a haircut and Tuesday my cowlick sprouted again. The brand-new Irish-linen shirt I wore yesterday for the first time now wears, in turn, much of the veal sauce from last night&rsquo;s dinner. Those smooth and glossy Italian shoes I nerved myself up to buy three weeks ago already have more folds than Joan Collins&rsquo;s face.
