Congratulations on having the courage to publish “The Pariah.” What a shame the Mercury News doesn’t share your commitment to serious, important journalism. I’ve known Gary Webb for twenty years and worked with him in a newsroom, and I know that he is, indeed, not only a good man but a really good reporter.

“I think heroes rarely see themselves as heroic, and there’s a lot of virtue in that kind of humility,” says writer at large Michael Paterniti, who trekked from Virginia (where he “heroically survived a bad batch of potato skins”) to Florida to the Sudan while reporting his piece, “(Let Us Now Praise) Hero Nation” (page 96), an exploration of various large acts of American heroism.

Boy, Do We Ever Need a Hero

David Granger
It’s corny, isn’t it? Hero? The notion, in this day and age, that there could be heroes? Heroes are for kids. Heroes are for youngsters. We’re far too old and far too sophisticated to need heroes. Heroes are those things in the thirty- and sixty-second spots on the television, selling shoes.

It was an ugly pucker, like the splash of a rock in mud, only it was in the middle of our dad’s back. Every scar tells a story, and its bearer tells another one. The tale our father told will sound familiar, but the fact that it had happened to him made it seem heroic.

ESQ: Would you call yourself an actor or an actress? A: An actress. To me, it's always been, actors are men and actresses are women. But it's kind of neither here nor there for me. Like, I generally call films movies.

How to explain the underwhelming aesthetics of that most ubiquitous of household appliances? Simple—industrial designers mustn't be couch potatoes. Think about it: After more than fifty years, countless man-hours, and billions of R&D dollars, what have we got with the TV? A gray, plastic box.

Emeril Lagasse
By now, you've probably dug through that kitchen drawer to get out the sharpening steel, right? Maybe slid the blade of your biggest, baddest knife up and down it a bit. You even practiced on a humble roast or two. Hey, the Thanksgiving turkey is yours to carve again this year, and you don't want to screw it up, I know.

Richard Nalley
Unless you use Emeril's recipe, a roast turkey is the baked potato of the poultry world, beloved more for what you stuff into it, cover it with, or ladle onto the plate around it. As for choosing wine and drinks, there's hardly a beverage on the planet that doesn't taste right with a piece of plain turkey.

Marc Herman
What you already know about Marianne Faithfull is that she was Mick Jagger's four-year paramour; that she was upstairs dressed in only a rug or perhaps a fur coat when the famous first Stones drug bust happened; that she cowrote "Sister Morphine" while knowing the subject far too intimately; that "As Tears Go By" was written for her.

It does not take a fashion guru to figure out how to amortize the cost of a navy-blue suit. You know it goes with a white shirt. You know it matches up with a turtleneck. You know you can wear the coat without the trousers as a blazer. You, being more sophisticated than the average magazine reader, know this. But what about a pinstripe suit?

Rule No. 180: You don't have to be a football hero to get along with the beautiful girls. Arab princes do okay. Also, short guys with a lot of money. Rule No. 76: Cranberry sauce is a perfectly good condiment the other 364 days of the year, too. Rule No. 115: There is nothing that can be marketed that cannot be better marketed using the likeness of Honest Abe Lincoln.

Andrew Ward
Steve Rushin was not looking forward to turning thirty. He didn't want a birthday card or a money clip or a new set of irons. He wanted a road trip. He wanted to bid adieu to his twenties by climbing into his Pathfinder and seeing America. More specifically, he wanted to spend twelve months paying homage to as many of America's sports meccas as he could think of, from Cooperstown to Augusta National, from the Richard Petty Museum to Jim Thorpe's grave.

In The Love of a Good woman (Knopf, $24), the newest collection of short stories from Canadian master Alice Munro, things are never quite as they appear: There's the steady town doctor who performs secret abortions, the prim upstairs neighbor who may have set her house—and her husband—on fire, the quiet farmer who may be hiding the murder of a respected old optometrist.

The eyes of the people in Jeff Dunas's book of portraits all have a certain something in common. They've all got eyes that are exiled, wise, defiant. Man, what great faces in State of the Blues (Aperture, $50). The blues is all about sex, you bet, and these legendary faces (Bo Diddley, Dr. John, Joe Williams, John Lee Hooker, Ike Turner, among scads of wonderful others) all look as if they've loved and lost.

Like most restaurant critics, I used to say that the only reason to eat in a hotel was—well, actually, I used to say there was no reason to eat in a hotel. The numbing sameness of downstairs dining rooms provided as much appeal for a traveler as visiting a VA hospital.

Comic filmmaker Roberto Benigni—for better or worse known as the Woody Allen of Italy—learned from his father to use laughter to heal. During World War II, Benigni the elder had been imprisoned for three years in a German work camp, after which he was nearly broken and weighed less than eighty pounds.

HERE AT SARDI'S, near Broadway in Manhattan, they used to do this kind of luncheon all the time: Red Blaik, back in the forties, would come down from West Point to discuss with eminent New Yorkers how he planned to play Notre Dame on Saturday; Eddie Arcaro would describe the feel of Whirlaway, reaching down through muscle and sinew and centuries of breeding for that heartblood burst in the final straight; Graziano would talk about Zale’s pikestaff of a jab; or the Mick would say that when you hit one right, the bat goes through the ball like water and you don’t even feel it in your hands.

<p>CLEARLY, I'M NOT the only one who's nervous as NYPD Blue begins its sixth season. Jimmy Smits, who plays Bobby Simone, is leaving, and Rick Schroder, former adorable child star, seems at first glance an unlikely choice as his replacement. No wonder, then, that at a recent press conference, one journalist called out to Dennis Franz (Andy Sipowicz), “Promise us you’ll never, ever leave the show!”</p>

I WENT TO A BACHELOR party a few months ago. Two &quot;performers&quot; came. First they sat on the living-room floor, facing each other, sharing a very long, double-headed dildo. Then they started coming over to us, sitting on our laps. I watched two guys&mdash;both happily married&mdash;as the hired help straddled them.

<p>WHEN YOU FIRST CAME INTO THE COUNTRY, it was on a Buffalo, a huge, silver-winged transport flashing through the clouds at three hundred knots. This was your commute, the way some people ride the train to work. You stood up in the cockpit, in baggy pants and a T-shirt, watching the earth glide beneath your feet.</p>

MERRY STOCKWELL
AT THE TIME, I WASN&#39;T EVEN SURE HE KNEW I WAS SCREAMING AT HIM. BUT FOR YEARS afterward, he was resentful of it. He felt that I wasn&rsquo;t having faith in him. I don&rsquo;t fault myself in the slightest. I think it was a very human response: I didn&rsquo;t know the outcome.&nbsp;I was in love with this guy, and it looked like I had an awful big chance to lose him.

<p>Once upon a time, a little boy loved a stuffed animal whose name was Old Rabbit. It was so old, in fact, that it was really an unstuffed animal; so old that even back then, with the little boy's brain still nice and fresh, he had no memory of it as "Young Rabbit," or even "Rabbit"; so old that Old Rabbit was barely a rabbit at all but rather a greasy hunk of skin without eyes and ears, with a single red stitch where its tongue used to be.</p>

Should That Whole Global Warming Thing Turn Out to Be a Hoax...
Winter still won't be as severe as the conditions our men endured shooting this story on Perito Moreno Glacier in Patagonia. That doesn't mean you can't use their clothes, though. They work on a ski slope or a city street as well as they do in a crevasse.

Gregory Peck Never Had It So Good
Used to be the most the man in the gray flannel suit could hope for was thirty sober years on the clock and a gold watch. That was used to be. Today's grays offer as many options as the modern career path, not mention sophistication and—as one can plainiy see—a certain attractiveness.

Let&#39;s just say she&#39;d let our man stand up. On his feet and facing the camera, he&#39;d be showing you that the traditional gray flannel&mdash;the titular suit of Gregory Peck&#39;s 1956 movie and Sloan Wilson&#39;s book before it&mdash;has changed some.

On this cold, flurry-filled morning, Rusty Squire resembles Clark Kent in a speed suit. But he&#39;s not that mild-mannered or that ungainly: As a former U. S. Ski Team member and past pro racer, he knows how to hold an eighty-mile-per-hour tuck.

I put down the book and thought about the title, If You Could See What I Hear. I closed my eyes and envisioned the author, Tom Sullivan, as a twenty-six-year-old blind man, picking up the ringing telephone in his backyard, telling his three-year-old daughter, Blythe, to sit patiently on a step, and then getting into a vital business conversation.
