CHIP BROWN’S “The Accidental Martyr” (December 1993) is brilliant. In a former life in the U. S. military, I reviewed investigations and processed female and male military suspected and accused of homosexual tendencies, words, and deeds; and I prosecuted and defended military persons accused of “homosexual acts violating the uniform code of military justice.

I' VE SPENT MY LIFE in magazines, so for me Esquire is both an adventure and a homecoming. ¶ During Harold Hayes's great run at Esquire in the late '60s and early'70s, I was at Newsweek, where each week, it seemed, the story list read: Civil Rights, Assassination, Vietnam, Watergate.

AS KEITH RICHARDS was rumored to have done through much of the Seventies, magazines also need to change their blood occasionally. They do that by bringing in new writers, and this month we introduce two fresh voices to our pages—John Taylor and Jeannette Walls—and welcome back a third— Julie Baumgold.

Robertson, who runs New York’s Tiger Management, received close to $350 million, industry sources say.

CALLING THE publisher of The New York Times a space cadet may not be such an insult. Arthur "Pinch" Sulzberger Jr., the forty-two-year-old head of the paper of record, happily admits he is a Trekkie. When Sulzberger assumed the helm of the Times last year, his cousin, Dan Cohen, and a friend, banker Steven Rattner, held a roast in his honor and revealed that, tragically, Sulzberger had failed to realize his first ambition:

But apparently Garcia draws the line when it comes to pitching his creations on TV; he turned down the Home Shop ping Network and QVC.

The two partners of Doak, Shrum, Harris, Carrier, Devine are perhaps irrevocably divided over their recent acquisition of the senator as a client.

THE ONLY ONE lower than Socks Clinton on the White House scratching pole may be writer Sally Quinn. It seems Quinn began clawing at Hillary during the presidential campaign, when she wrote condescendingly about the Clintons. Lately, though, Quinn has been taking swipes at the thin-skinned First Lady.

O'Reilly says he was called several years ago by George Bush's then-political director, Ronald Kaufman, who asked him to run against Massachusetts representative Barney Frank.

Roseanne was initially interested in Dream Girl, because she's been looking for a role that's nontraditional and nonsexist.

IT SEEMS A GOOD chunk of America has been following Amy Brenneman into her bedroom Tuesday nights as she becomes Officer Janice Licalsi in ABC's hit cop show, NYPD Blue. Every other episode or so, Brenneman, who, in what seems like another life, was a comparative-religion major at Harvard, clutches the pale, vulnerable, Catholic butt of Detective John Kelly (David Caruso) and takes prime-time television to a realm of sexuality it has never before visited.

ALTHOUGH HE was England's finest painter since Turner, Francis Bacon was known there as much for his notorious personal life (lived "between the gutter and the Ritz"), his preference for rough trade, and his habit of wearing fishnet stockings and garters beneath his trousers as for the horrible beauty of his art.

NOBODY HAS HAD ANYTHING good to say about Senator Bob Packwood's diary—not even Packwood, who warned that it contained enough sexual filth about the Senate's most august members that they'd be ruined if it were ever made public. Squalid as Packwood makes himself and his diary sound, I do admire him.

PAUL WATKINS SEEMS just to have emerged from a vole hole. We're nibbling away at our respective afternoon snacks at Princeton's P. J.'s Pancake House, a local landmark bent on retaining a minimal aura of collegiate idyll. Watkins, who teaches at two nearby prep schools, taps at a suggestive agglutination of sausage—"just like in England," he says with disgust and fondness—and haltingly tries to explain why he wrote Stand Before Your God, a memoir of life as an American at England's Dragon and Eton prep schools.

HOW MANY LIES do you tell in a day? I don't tell that many. Actually, that's not completely true. Actually, I lie constantly, like a rug, from the time first thing in the morning when I say, "Good morning, bud, you look great!" (when it isn't, and he doesn't) to the last nanosecond of the ten-hour shift, when I tell Bland, our midwestern vice-president, that his position in the corporation is “eminently viable at this juncture,” when I know for a fact he’ll be gone by the time the cicadas are in bloom.

Lestat, C'est Moi
The casting of Tom Cruise as the lead in the $50million movie Interview with Vampire has set off a classic Hollywood ego brawl. Anne Rice is squalling. David Geffen is fuming. And Neil Jordan is just confused. Meanwhile, the star is left asking: Why does everybody hate me?

JUDEE SMITH was cleanng the breakfast dishes when the doorbell rang late on the morning of June 17, 1992. She wasn't expecting anyone, but in Lexington Park, a small, prosperous town next to the Patuxent River naval base off the Chesapeake Bay in southern Maryland, people occasionally dropped by without advance word.

For a moment he is lost, despite the entourage moving him along, despite his wife, Barbara. There is a bronze statue of some Indians and a small, surprised crowd held back on both sides by state troopers.

TAD FRIEND
HEART PHOENIX sat on the edge of the stage and beckoned everyone near. The 150 people in Paramount Studios' screening room gathered around like disciples. A short, tan woman with graying hair, Heart has a saintly way of soothing fears. The mourners needed her now; her son River's memorial service had been wrenching.

A LONG TIME AGO, in a stinky, chemical primordial swamp, a single-celled organism, used to reproducing by dividing and sloughing off an exact copy of itself, decided to mix it up with another, distantly related organism. Thus, in the interest of genetic variety, species hardiness, and plain old fun was sex invented, and all descendants of that seminal act have been obsessed with it ever since.

AS SOON AS THE SHAMAN saw Isabel, he closed his eyes and shook his maraca as if to ward off the sight. Though she had grown accustomed to going naked like the Indians, for this occasion she had tucked around her waist a kind of sarong that she had earlier fashioned—to protect her legs from thorns and stinging insects when gathering food in the wild for AntÔnio's household—of the dress of navy-blue silk covered with small red flowers, which she had once worn, in all innocence, to Chiquinho's ranch house, on another occasion when she had wished to present herself favorably.

THERE WERE THREE VERSIONS of how my brother Blake met his death. In the first, Blake and Mark both go for their guns and Blake is outdrawn. In the second, the two of them argue, Blake throws a punch, Mark pulls a gun and fires. The third and most plausible version is the ambush in which Mark jumps from a car and shoots Blake six times, three of them in the back.

THE ONLY PLACE THE WORD Oldsmobile appears on the 1995 Aurora, due in showrooms this month, is in little tiny letters on the radioor more specifically, on the premium Bose Acoustimass sound system. A couple of years ago, in General Motors' darkest days, there was talk of dropping altogether the name that Ransom Eli Olds first applied to mass-produced runabouts when Henry Ford was still tinkering in a stable.

FRANCIS FUKUYAMA, that wacky fun-loving utopianist, asserted in 1989 that the end of history was at hand. Its disappearance apparently meant that one day we would all live in liberal democracies and consume to our heart's content. That would be cool, right? For a coal miner in Katowice, Poland, history's departure might indeed be cause to break out the vodka.
