JONATHAN ALTER’S “ALL GROWN Up and Nowhere to Go” (May) was the first article that accurately portrays how thwarted, indeed, pissed off we, the Nowhere Generation, feel. The excesses of the 1980s have left us with little hope of living as well as our parents—enormous debts, no medical insurance, no industrial infrastructure, unaffordable housing, national debt, a collapsing banking system, and a culture of intolerance and ignorance.

FOR NEARLY SIXTY YEARS Esquire has been admiring women—with eloquence, with humor, and always with passion. Sometimes we’ve been suave, some' times we’ve been jilted. But whether we’ve put women on a pedestal or kicked it out from under them, they’ve always preoccupied us.

<p>SPIKE LEE IS SITTING FOR A HAIRCUT under a red sheet on the second floor of the converted Brooklyn firehouse that serves him as workshop and headquarters. He smiles in greeting. A young woman offers coffee or a cold drink. The dense, meshed rhythms of Stevie Wonder come from the sound system, punctuated by the metallic swish of the scissors.</p>

<p>WHEN THE BIG LIGHT goes out, you hope it will be turned on again. It is immediately apparent that you are not entering a restaurant while you are being gurneyed into an operating theater. Case studies reveal that it is common among acute schizophrenics to believe that doctors are, in fact, aliens.</p>

<p>A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO I drove down to Atlantic City to see the Foreman-Holyfield heavyweight championship fight. I had not been to a fight in years—not since visiting Muhammad Ali at his home in Los Angeles during the 1984 Olympics. I watched him sign autographs at his desk, the pen working laboriously across the paper. </p>

<p>AT PRECISELY 3:57 P.M. this coming October 3, it will be forty years since Leo Durocher, manager of the New York baseball Giants, patted Bobby Thomson on the back and said, “Boy, if you ever hit one, hit one now.” A minute later, Thomson hit one—a three-run homer that sailed into the left-field stands at the Polo Grounds and won the 1951 National League pennant for the Giants.</p>

<p>GIVEN MY CHOICE of any dessert in the world, I would unhesitatingly choose chocolate ice cream, which has the same effect on my palate as does twilight on my psyche. As a kid, I was perfectly content with Good Humor chocolate from the back of a truck, or Breyers hand-packed at my neighborhood candy store.</p>

<p>BECAUSE RARITY IS not always a factor in determining their value, antique automobiles can take the first rule of collecting and invert it like a 1918 airmail stamp. A bevy of interesting old cars is stuck in the Great American Car Limbo. “Never been hot, and never will be,” goes the litany.</p>

FROM DALLAS TO LOS ANGELES TO CHAPPAQUIDDICK TO PALM BEACH, IT'S BEEN A TUMULTUOUS AND TRAGIC RIDE FOR A NATION AND ITS ROYAL FAMILY. IS THE INCIDENT AT THE COMPOUND JUST ANOTHER ATROCITY OF FATE? OR DO THE KENNEDYS THEMSELVES NOW WANT THE MYTH TO DIE?

ELIZABETH KAYE
<p>Each individual has three lives: a public life, a private life, and a secret one. These lives are ascribed specific dialogue and costumes and sets, and when a sequence in the action wraps, the set on which it was played may be, on occasion, elevated to a shrine. The tortuous progress of the Kennedy family has produced many shrines. Among them is a mansion in the Spanish Colonial Revival style located at 1095 North Ocean Boulevard in Palm Beach, Florida. </p>

Close your eyes (metaphorically, of course) and imagine a blazer that’s tailored enough to wear to the office and roomy enough to wear with a bulky sweater. Now imagine that this blazer is as soft as the sweater. Now open your eyes. This is the fall European collection, a collection so distinctive that it blurs the line between tailored clothing and sportswear.
