IN “A RAKE’S PROGRESS" (June), Lynn Darling suggests that the adulterer would be best off continuing to hide his affairs because after lying for twenty years, he would be crushed by revealing his lies to his wife. My own experience tells me that quite the opposite is true.

NOT SINCE SOCRATES sat down to talk things over with Plato has there been a more stimulating dialogue than senior writer Bill Zehme’s “Smart Conversations” with Jerry Seinfeld (“Dr. Seinfeld Is In,” page 122). In the course of their tête-à-tête—which took them to such heady locales as a frozen-yogurt store and an L. A. coffee bar—the exchange turned to the difference between men’s and women’s magazines.

Dick Snyder may be out as chairman of Simon & Schuster, but like the Napoleon he was often accused of being—Snyder notoriously conquered one S&S elevator bank—he will likely return from exile. Last June, after thirty-three years, Snyder was unceremoniously fired by Simon & Schuster’s parent company, Viacom, a move that shocked the publishing world and left his bank account $10 million richer.

MONTHS before anyone accused O. J.

Jean Paul Gaultier— the man who created Madonna's cone-shaped bra— wants to devote some attention to his own chest. Gaultier has lately been telling friends that he plans to get pectoral implants. His spokesman says that Jean Paul is only kidding, but a source says, “He keeps pretty busy and can’t work out as much as he wants to.”

WHO SAYS those Kennedys aren't God-fearing folk? Recently, Laurence Leamer, who has spent the last several years researching his upcoming book, The Kennedy Women, thought his luck was a little too good when he had a very candid interview with John F. Kennedy’s sister Eunice Shriver a few days after Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis’s death.

THE DAMAGE control over Kitty Kelley's book on the royal family has already begun—and it won’t be out for years. Rising to defend the crown is writer-cum-randy-Tory-philosopher Lord Jeffrey Archer, and a public feud has ensued. Archer recently interrupted a speech he was giving in Lancaster House to ask Kelley to stop taking notes.

IF SOME French women seem unusually frigid lately, there’s good reason. That miracle of engineering, the Wonderbra, may be all the rage here, but the “cold bra” is making them hot and bothered right now in France. The secret to the bra is a refrigerant that courses through the material.

PETA has been grabbing headlines for some time now with its eye-opening ads, such as the one with Kim Basinger declaring: “I’d rather go nude than wear fur.”

THE SCRAWLS, scratches, and smears of a Cy Twombly canvas look less like a modern painting than something someone did to a modern painting. Like a back-alley Kilroy defacing walls with obscene graffiti, or a dim-witted contractor doing calculations on the back of a sheet of wallboard, Twombly draws cartoon shapes and crude numbers.

THAT SHE looks recognizably like the daughter of GoodFellas's Paul Sorvino and is still beautiful is a minor mystery. We get to see Mira Sorvino in Whit Stillman’s Metropolitan reprise, Barcelona, just out, in which she plays a Catalonian good-time girl who, in her small but determined way, personifies the post-Franco Spanish sexual revolution.

THE CD-ROM in your computer plays CD-quality sound, naturally, but most computer speakers have done their best to hide that fact. The speakers supplied with most “multimedia ready” computers or install-it-your-self CD-ROM players and soundboards are of minimal quality and, not to mince words, too down-right ugly to place on your desk.

IF NYPD Blue tries to hold a mirror up to reality, then Absolutely Fabulous— the British sitcom that has been the rage on BBC1—rips that mirror off the wall, cuts a few lines of blow on it, and washes it all down with a little Veuve Clicquot. In other words, it’s a bit decadent, darling, and will turn moralistic American television on its bum.

NATURE'S wake-up calls have understandably made Los Angelenos a bit skittish about venturing out for a good meal lately, and as a result, a troubling number of highly touted restaurants— City, Bice, Pazzia—went under in the past year. A few new places, however, succeeded in goosing the population out of its doldrums this summer.

Mike Lupica
THE LIMOUSINE MOVED slowly north on Madison Avenue with Ken Griffey Jr. in the backseat. He wore a flowery long-sleeved shirt buttoned at the neck and blue jeans. The diamonds in his earring formed a tiny number 24. In a few hours, Griffey would get five hits against the Yankees—he had beaten them in the ninth inning the night before with a vicious single to right field—and the next morning, it would be announced on national television that he was going to the All-Star game with more votes than any player ever.

Stanley Bing
THEY COME IN THE NIGHT, slurping into the corporation on little fat feet. Before you know it, they’re right at the heart of the granary bin, munching away at the precious harvest of organizational life, which, of course, is trust. They are the weasels, the stoats, the plump, rodentine offal eaters who live in the interstitial fabric of the family, darting between, among, under—looking for any scrap of sustenance that will keep them alive.

FIGURING OUT WHAT TO DO with your brain—assuming you had one—used to be a pretty straightforward affair. You'd fill it with stuff learned by people who were older than you, or had lived before you, because what else can you do with a brain? Then you’d try to put all that knowledge to use.

IT'S HARD TO DRAW too fine a line around things of this nature, but let's just say that November 13, 1961, the night Pablo Casals uncased his cello in the White House, was the last good time to be smart in America. That is to say, smart in the sense of being an egghead.

HAROLD BLOOM
WHAT USE CAN IT BE for an individual critic to catalog the Western canon as he sees it? Even our elite universities now are supine before oncoming waves of multiculturalists. Still, even if our current fashions prevail forever, canonical choices of both past and present works have their own interest and charm, for they, too, are part of the ongoing contest that is literature.

POOR JOSIE BISSETT. All she wants to do is play bad. But until now, it has been impossible to convey to her army of fans—via her role as the doe-eyed dumpee of Melrose Place— that she is anything other than a pathological Goody Two-shoes. Perhaps that’s why she pulled her pants down for Late Night's Conan O’Brien recently, inviting him to take a look at a tattoo— one of two—situated somewhere in her upper-leg region.

CONCERNING THE EXCEEDINGLY aptly named Swedish group Ace of Base, the question is not who buys this dreck. Surveillance cameras can tell us that. Rather, the crux of the Ace of Base case lies in who actually likes the Aryan product. In our house, at least, the answer was manifest when I brought home The Sign (Arista), A of B’s megaselling, megablond CD.
