Regular English seems to be a foreign language in Washington, D.C., where elected officials spew verbose politico speech every time they are put in front of a microphone. In search of a few plain-speaking politicians, CNN senior analyst Jeff Greenfield put together The No-Bullshit Caucus. "Politicians have always been inclined toward a flowery style of speech," Greenfield says. "There is danger in plain talk, as one stray remark may be blown out of proportion by the press--especially in the instant, 24-hours-a-day mode. The folks I nominate for the caucus speak with no fear of that, which projects a very attractive self-confidence. I sense the public is so saturated with political babble that they are ready for something different: 'Just talk to us.' "

My girlfriend and I broke up for a few months. After we got back together I found out she had slept with another guy. Can you explain how this can infuriate me and turn me on at the same time?--J.H., Buffalo, New York

Simon Worrall
Religious fundamentalism is nothing new. We've seen it before, in the early 17th century, when a group of extremists sought to transform England into a theocracy governed by a strict interpretation of scripture. These were the Protestants who later landed at Plymouth Rock and are revered in the United States as the Pilgrim fathers.

From an Acknowledgment issued this past fall by military spokesperson Kim Waldron of the U.S. Army Forces Command at Fort McPherson, Georgia on sending openly gay service members into combat: "The bottom line is some people are using sexual orientation to avoid deployment. So in this case, with the Reserve and Guard forces, if a soldier 'tells,' they still have to go to war, and the homosexual issue is postponed until they return to the U.S. and the unit is demobilized."

The New Ten Commandments
[no value]
[no value]
[no value]
Bernard Gert
Many people believe the Ten Commandments are a universal moral guide to be displayed in classrooms and courthouses. But universal morality can't come from a religion, because no religion is universally practiced. Many people learn about morality from their religion, which may explain why they think morality depends on religion. But people can be moral without believing in a higher power, and a moral guide that everyone knows and accepts serves societies better than one known and accepted only by followers of a particular religion.

Kissed by the Tuscan Sun

Jason Harper
At five o'clock on a July evening, a welcome breeze finally cuts the lazy heat. We're at the Dievole winery in the tiny village of Vagliagli, nestled in the lush hills outside Siena in Tuscany. Like something from A Midsummer Night's Dream, this magical place exists beyond the reach of normal time. Nothing has changed here for centuries, and nothing likely will. Tourists rarely come to the Valley of Garlic, as the name translates, despite its location in popular Chianti. The meandering road from the city ends here. Vagliagli is its own destination.

You will never find them gathered together, because they have never held a meeting, much less a fund-raising cocktail party or dinner. They have never issued a press release or a list of talking points for one of their members to disgorge on a TV talk show. They have no legislative agenda and no common set of policies, programs or beliefs. Among their ranks you will find members as far left and right as anyone in the United States Congress.

You know life is good when a Playmate kicks off her interview by peeling back her clothes. Cassandra Lynn doffs her duds to show us the five tattoos she has on her sun-kissed body--all of them butterflies. "My good friends call me Butterfly," she says. "I started getting the tattoos at the age of 18." She says she just likes butterflies, but we're reading a little more into it.

A. J. Baime
More than any other food, the oyster is better known for what it represents than for how it tastes. You could fill a dictionary with its connotations. Currency: The Romans paid for them with their weight in gold. Decadence: They didn't call them oyster palaces for nothing. Courage: "He was a bold man that first ate an oyster"--Jonathan Swift. Power: the young JFK slurping them down at Boston's Union Oyster House; FDR, George W. Bush and Dick Nixon making pilgrimages to Antoine's in New Orleans, where a portly chef dreamed up oysters Rockefeller in honor of John D. himself.

Adrianne Curry certainly knows how to make an entrance. At a sunny outdoor cafe near her home in Manhattan Beach, California, the towering brunette strides past the ladies who lunch, wearing a skintight thermal top and jeans that stop a few glorious inches below her waist. At a corner table she pops off her oversize black shades, throws down her handbag (clasped shut with a single metal handcuff) and promptly orders a sex on the beach. "Look out," she whispers with a wink and a smile. "White trash has infiltrated the land of the desperate housewives!"

Surf's Up. Way Up

Some call surfing 50-foot waves insane. For Jeff Clark it's therapy. "It's the place I go when the shit hits the fan. I can just paddle out to my own planet," he says. Clark is the discoverer, pioneer and champion of the Mavericks surf break in northern California. In 1975 the now legendary big-wave spot in Half Moon Bay had seldom been encountered without a ship, but today the world's top big-wave riders seek it out for the annual Mavericks surf contest. Clark got his first glimpse of a huge wave there when he was a teen, thanks to a sharp-eyed Little League coach who spied the colossal curl about half a mile offshore. Not long after, at the age of 17, Clark screwed up the gumption to paddle for 20 minutes through 52-degree water and take on a modest (for Mavericks) 25-foot face. For 15 years Clark was the only person with the audacity to surf the break. "No one was looking for big-surf spots up by San Francisco," he explains. In the 1990s he shared his secret with some big-wave-riding pros, who immediately saw it for what it was--the hugest surfing on the West Coast. The competition is held between January 1 and March 31, whenever waves are best. Once Clark announces the date on his website, maverickssurf.com, contestants have 24 hours to get there. Whether they get back in one piece is another story.

If you haven't noticed, the world today is in a state of crisis. Terrorism, mistrust of government, Brad and Jen--it's a mess. Who can save the day? Superman, naturally. Vaunted comic-book publisher DC Comics' new seven-issue miniseries Infinite Crisis offers a new take on good and evil more in accord with our times, when the lines between them are not so clearly drawn. Written by fan favorite Geoff Johns and illustrated by Phil Jimenez (pictured left is cover art for issue #4, which hits stands this month), the series features nearly 400 characters from the publisher's superhuman pantheon in an epic battle that reshapes their fictional universe. Primarily the story interweaves the plotlines of DC's holy trinity: Batman, Superman and the superendowed Wonder Woman. "For me it's about showing the audience--if they've forgotten or don't know--why Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman are such great heroes," says Johns. "To do that across the board with the entire DC Universe, you have to ask, What does it mean to be a hero? That's really the theme." And Johns isn't joking around. By the end of this series, some of his beloved heroes will kick the superbucket.
