Tom Chiarella admits that his decision to walk from his home in Greencastle, Indiana, to the local mall—sixty-four miles away in Indianapolis—was “a foolish thing to do.” But after talking it up for ten years, Chiarella finally realized that this journey was not only inevitable, it was in his blood.

The Four-Letter Word we All Forgot About In March, Esquire featured a series of stories about the AIDS crisis in America, illustrated on the cover_ by a handful of very influential folks. Inside, Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist Laurie Garrett described how drug treatments are failing and forecast the emergence of more resistant HIV strains ("The Virus at the End of the World"), while writer Alec Wilkinson spent a day in the life of Dr.

“I don’t like death,” Gary Prater said by way of explaining why he takes a hundred pills a day at an annual cost of $4,000, which the fifty-two-year-old manager of the Life Extension Nutrition Center in Fort Lauderdale expects will extend the expiration date of his earthly meat to the year 2060, “give or take five.”

To National Football League scouts, Ricky Williams is the Sure Thing: the owner of twenty-one NCAA records and the Heisman Trophy, a wicked stiff-arm, the speed of a greyhound, a head of dreadlocks, and, this month, when he goes pro at the top of the NFL draft, many millions of dollars.

Phil Patton
Where are the great American wagons? Why have the Country Squire and the vista Cruiser gone the way of the prairie schooner? Christos Roustemis, who dreamed up the new Nomad concept vehicle for Chevrolet, has a theory: He believes wagons disappeared because grown-up boomers associated them with Ozzie-and-Harriet-era memories of being trapped in the backseat.

You might think you don’t know Bruce Eric Kaplan’s work, but you do. That is, if you’ve ever watched Seinfeld or rifled through The New Yorker, you do. Because Kaplan’s cartoons, under his nom de pen-and-ink, BEK, appear regularly in that magazine, and because he wrote for Seinfeld during its final season.

If you read the guidebooks, you will not stay in Nuevo Laredo. Like Laredo, Texas, on the other side of the Rio Grande, it's got a standard crap-ass border-town rep. Nuevo Laredo is regarded as a place to be gotten out of rather than into. Picture: bazaar kitsch, Touch of Evil, blue-hairs trolling farmacias for cut-rate valium and Retin-A, kids peddling Chiclets ("Chick-lays, chick-lays..."). But now picture: getting away from that fast, driving down Guerrero, fleeing from gringoland, stopping at El Rancho Su Majestad El Tacoyes! His Majesty the Taco—and greeting José Luis, the night manager, who says, "we are the subordinates to the taco.

Short sleeves. Soft, rounded collar. Two, maybe three buttons at the throat. This—despite the fact you’re most likely to see it on the tennis court or at work on a Friday—is what we know as the polo shirt. Or what we used to know, because the cotton-piqué polo is changing.

I suppose there is a woman to blame, as the Jimmy Buffett song goes, but in my book, Margarita deserves heaps of worshipful praise, not blame. And I am not alone. Her glorious, eponymous tequila-and-lime-juice concoction is America’s number-one cocktail by far.

As with all the roundups that are so popular these fin-de-siècle days, part of the fun of The Best American Short Stories of the Century (Houghton Mifflin, $28) is quibbling with its selections. Happily, we find literary grandes dames Cather, Porter, O'Connor, and welty included, and while there's no Salinger (no Esmé and no Glasses?—how can this be?), no Tobias Wolff, no Grace Paley, and no John Barth, there are stories from Donald Barthelme, John Cheever, Harold Brodkey, and the most geniusish writer since Shakespeare, Vladimir Nabokov.

Only thirty-nine restaurants in the world possess three Michelin stars, and only three are in Italy. The Michelin Guide awards one star for “a very good restaurant in its category,” two for a restaurant “worth a detour,” and three for a restaurant “worth a special journey.”

ONE DOESN'T DRIVE ALL THE WAY to Dal Pescatore to have a quick, three-course meal, although Nadia's cooking is extremely delicate and light, even after five or six courses. When my wife and I last visited the restaurant, we asked Nadia to cook two different menus for us—an option anyone can exercise by having the seasonal tasting menu at about $85.

These are dark days for value investors. "I need a stock tip," says the young hipster assistant editor to the rumpled financial writer. "I want an Internet stock that's solid but fast-growing and also very cheap." In poker, that's called a tell—a tendency to look at one's pile of chips when planning to call, or to hum softly when dealt the suited ace-king.

Pan down gently, gently, down past the fat young buzzards, down past the citrus trees, down past the raucous mockingbirds, down all the way into Dodgertown, where the Los Angeles team has practiced in the spring since the Los Angeles team was playing in Brooklyn, since Jackie Robinson, Pee Wee, and the Duke.

BACK IN 1983, when Luke Skywalker removed his father’s mask in Return of the ]edi, audiences saw an actor whose kindly features meant nothing to them—and who didn’t even look as if he’d sound much like James Earl Jones. What a letdown! If you ask me, the face that moment cried out for was George Lucas’s bearded, myopic own.

THE LUXURY OF BEING ABLE TO SAY NO to whatever doesn’t please you—a creepy boss, a base-model sedan, 100-percent-polyester boxer shorts—constitutes much of what people mean when they say “the good life.” And saying no has a lot to do with planning for a comfortable retirement as well, since having the monetary security to do whatever you please is half the reason you work in the first place.

<p>SO I'M OVER AT THE HORTONS' with my stretcher and minivan and my able apprentice, young Matt Sheffler, because they found old George, the cemetery sexton, dead in bed this Thursday morning in ordinary time. And the police have been in to rule out foul play and the EMS team to run a tape so some ER doctor wired to the world can declare him dead at a safe distance.</p>

You don’t paddle against the current, you paddle with it. And if you get good at it, you throw away the oars... Never give up, which is the lesson I learned from boxing. As soon as you learn to never give up, you have to learn the power and wisdom of unconditional surrender, and that one doesn’t cancel out the other; they just exist as contradictions.

<p>David Cone, lead tenor of the split-fingered fastball, spent an evening at the Metropolitan Opera a couple of years ago, listening from a box seat in the house that Vanderbilt as Placido Domingo sang Otello. This in itself is unremarkable, since both opera and baseball are genres of voluptuous lyrical expression, loved beyond rational explanation by the devotee, that any sane human bred into a culture of quick-riff garbage finds skull-numbingly boring, primarily because both demand an extended commitment of time and attention.</p>

"I'm always in my bed. It feels like I do everything there," says actress Carrie-Anne Moss, whom we've photographed here in ... bed. "I have this incredible bed with four pillows, but I only sleep with two: one for my head and one that I hug. It's nothing fancy, but my bed is heaven to me."

I stood in the cavernous convention hall, discussing my colon with a stranger. He scared me by tap, tap, tapping a bottle of colon-cleansing tea with his fingertip and by describing the dire consequences of my failure to keep my guts clean.

I live on Cheerios and pork rinds. I need a vitamin. But I am confronted by multis with herbs and extra calcium and selenium and metals like tin (tin?) and chromium and vanadium that sound as if they belong on golf-club shafts, not in my gut—and definitely not in my colon.

it's pretty common knowledge that melatonin is a harmless way to help jet-lagged travelers sleep.I travel a lot, so I add it to my shopping cart. NEWS TO YOU: Whoops! I'm wrong again. Scientists don't know much about what melatonin does, says Michael Menaker, a University of Virginia biologist and a top melatonin researcher.

Joe Montana says Endurox (aka ciwujia root, a very close relative of Siberian ginseng) is great. So I pick up a bottle, which says it "metabolizes up to 43 percent more fat calories per workout." It's been proven at a U. S. medical center. NEWS TO YOU: I call the researcher who did the study, Robert L. Kaman of the University of North Texas.

The sales pitch scrawled on the label of Cobra Performance Enhancer makes me giddy: "Since ancient times, men have used herbs to increase pleasure and enhance excitement. From Roman conquerors to Oriental warlords, they have recognized the powerful effects herbs can have on their performance and virility."

Late one night, the summer my wife and I lived on the mountain, we saw a deer standing on the traffic island at the end of our street. We saw the headlights of a car coming up the highway. We saw the deer fidget and leap into the light. By the time we made it to the wreck, the old woman had called 911 on the car phone.
