<p>I AM ANGRY that in “Winona Among the Grown-ups” (November, 1992) Michael Hirschorn referred to Winona Ryder as “a fabulous babe” and “cool chick.” With these stereotypes and negative labels, and by focusing on Ms. Ryder’s “frail slimness” rather than on the accomplishments of her career, he did a disservice to both her and your readers.</p>

<p>THIS MONTH, as we begin to celebrate the magazine’s sixtieth anniversary, we say farewell to one Esquire logo and welcome another. Our previous logo—a Rubenesque little number that, according to Esquire design consultant Roger Black, “was beginning to resemble the old chrome on a Rambler”—was introduced in 1980.</p>

How Old Are You?
The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.

Terry McDonell
NOW THAT THERE&#39;S a relatively young president in the White House, the future looks shiny, even promising. Yet at the same time an uneasiness lingers because Bill Clinton is more or less our age (i. e., not a real grownup, or at least not old), and we know what we are like.

PHIL PATTON
AT FIRST, they didn’t let Charlie Rose use the table, the nicked and grainy round table that is the center of his television show. Tables, industry wisdom held, inhibit conversation. But after three weeks of couches, Rose got his way. He shopped the Village and SoHo, even tried to buy an Arts and Crafts specimen off Jann Wenner, before he found a properly sturdy and shopworn model.

JOHN BERENDT
<p>SHORTLY AFTER THE DEFEAT of Michael Dukakis in 1988, the former Democratic party boss Robert Strauss looked back on three consecutive presidential losses and saw a distressing pattern: Jimmy Carter had been too gentle, Walter Mondale had been too bland, and Dukakis had been too passive.</p>

JOHN MARIANI
<p>TWO THINGS you should know about the winter air in Santa Fe (elevation 6,950 feet): There’s not much of it, and what there is has the sweet smell of meats cooked over piñon and mesquite. By the time you catch your breath, you’ll be ravenous. Not so long ago, Santa Fe’s dining scene was part burritos and margaritas, part dreary Continental cuisine.</p>

The Grateful Dead—Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Pigpen, et al.—were on the list. </p>

SHORTLY BEFORE 4:00 A.M. on a black September morning, an unmarked brown Dodge van raced through the Fort Apache section of the South Bronx. It turned onto Intervale Avenue, then jerked to a stop in front of a five-story tenement indistinguishable from the other firetraps in the neighborhood.

<p>WILL SAVAGE AND I were thrown together as juniors at prep school, late arrivals to the class of ’68, strangers to a cold New England campus warmly remembered by a dozen generations of American plutocrats. Although our new school was just twenty miles from my home and a thousand miles from his, I’d traveled much farther than Will; he was the seventh Savage to matriculate, and the observatory bore the name of his maternal grandfather.</p>

WHEN CALVIN Klein was starting out, he pushed a rack of clothing up to Bonwit Teller just to get someone to look at it. These days a young designer may have it even tougher&mdash;mainly because, and you may have noticed this already, the economy isn&rsquo;t so great.

NO DOUBT Bill Clinton has more important things to think about than fashion. But somehow matters of style and substance seem to converge in discussions of the new President, the first to come of age during the 1960s and the first since John F. Kennedy to excite hopes of a distinctive new style of governing.
