After his highly successful shows at prestigious museums, we are pleased to present Sante D'Orazios photos in The Passion of Pam. "Anyone can take a picture; it was the connec­tion between Pam Anderson and me that made these photo­graphs breathtaking," D'Orazio says. "I never try to pose the subject. I create the atmosphere and then capture genuine moments that make for such beautiful pictures. Besides Pam's flawless looks, her natural generosity and lovingness are why the public has embraced her and why there is a tremen­dous amount of depth in her photos. I have had plenty of giant-breasted girls say to me. I can be the next Pam Anderson if you shoot me.' I tell them. No. There is only one Pam.' Like the Mona Lisa and Marilyn Monroe, Pam has come to symbolize the divine beauty of femininity in contemporary culture."

DEATH IN A FRAT HOUSE

As legal counsel for the family of Matt Carrington, who died in February 2005 at Chico State following a frater­nity hazing, I find Jonathan Littman's article (The Basement, October) right on point. The only shortcoming is his soft treatment of fraternities. It is true that athletic teams and other groups haze, often viciously, but frats have a

In the October After Hours you list mascots you claim are not fearsome, including the Claim Jumpers of my alma mater, Columbia College. Since about the only way a gold-rush claim jumper could steal another man's spot was to kill him, a claim jumper is defi­nitely someone to fear, unlike, say, a buckeye or a duck.

Ozark Lake (October) asks if there is anything more dangerous than a teen­age girl; that question was answered in Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?, by Joyce Carol Oates. I'm sur­prised you didn't list her 1966 story as Nick Connell's obvious inspiration, as there are many similarities, including writing style, 15-year-old protagonists, older villains and characters named Connie. That aside, Connell's story is as compelling as Oates's original.

As a longtime playboy subscriber, a native of Appalachian Kentucky, a son of a coal miner and an attorney representing disabled miners, I was delighted to read Inside Deep Mine 26 (September). How­ever, I would like to make a correction. At one point a miner refers to a Bill Jim seam; it's actually Blue Gem. Most of my Blue Gem clients have permanent injuries (crushed foot, broken back, broken hand) but can't win federal benefits because they can't prove they have black lung. If you need an example of the dedication of these men, 1 had a case in which a judge asked a 90-year-old retired miner who

Knowing she shares my fondness for the Sex Pistols, I showed my wife your profile of Steve Jones (Jonesy, Octo­ber). She took one look at the shirtless, pistol-packing, tanned and tattooed Jones and blurted, "Damn, I wish you looked like that!" I took no offense because, though she loves me and my looks, I'm no Steve Jones. Thank you for the great photo, article and issue.

ORIGINALLY DESIGNED FOR Stanley Kubrick's 2007: A Space Odyssey, the Hamilton X-01 ($1,195, hamiltonwatch.com) is how watches looked six years ago, in 1968. (Think about it.) It features a titanium case with a black rubber strap. The piece keeps track of five time zones, which is almost as cool as floating in space. Now all you need is a smooth-talking, murderous supercomputer to accompany you on long trips to oblivion.

SKIING, SEX—SAME THING. Sometimes the groomed trails are heaven on earth, and other times you're hell-bent on exploring the backcountry. Unlike sex, however, skiing requires equipment. We scanned this season's skis in search of the best. Here's what we came up with (from top): The Seth from K2 Skis ($630, k2skis.com), named for fearless freeskiing freak Seth Mor­rison, is a pro-model big-mountain backcountry ski that blows through powder like Tony Montana. Salomon's Dumont ($625, salomonski.com), as in champion freeskier and noted bone breaker Simon Dumont, is great for pulling backflips in the terrain park. Volkl's AC4 ($1,115, volkl.com) is a fantastic all-condition resort ski for when you want to take it easy on the blues or push it hard on the blacks. Safety first, though. Ski bunny turnoffs include spinal-cord injuries and comas.

WE'LL GIVE A pass to the awful PC design of the past 20 years as a trade-off for ram­pant technological innovation. But if we're going to stick a box in our home today, it darn well better be pretty. With handsome chassis made from your choice of hard­woods, Suissa's line of com­puters (suissacomputers.com) provides an antidote to the beige box. You can customize the machine's guts to your needs. The Yasuko, shown here in walnut and zebrawood, starts at around $6,000.

MUSIC IS MEANT to be shared with friends. Of course, that's why the original Napster was shut down. But there's a way to share music that the man hasn't figured out how to stop (yet): playing it out loud. Which is what rocks about Samsung's K5, an MP3 player with slide-out speakers mounted on its back. Available in two- and four-gigabyte flavors ($210 and $260, samsung.com), it has a bright OLED screen, sleek buttonless touch-pad controls, an FM tuner and support for music subscription services. Plus it doubles as a travel alarm clock that wakes you with your favorite tunes.

CHRISTMAS SHOPPING IS a time-honored drag. So be a man about it—blow it off until the last second, then head to the liquor store. Here's a single-malt scotch cheat sheet (from left): The Glenlivet Nadurra ($60) is a 16-year-old cask-strength bottle of gold with hints of vanilla, honey and toasted oak. This Highland Park single cask, a 23-year-old beauty with a nutty, chocolaty sweetness, is bottled specifically for the Park Avenue Liquor Shop in New York ($200, park avenueliquor.com). For ultimate scotch bragging rights, Glenfiddich will sell you a Private Vintage cask (ours is a 1974) so your whiskey will be unlike any other in the world. Each cask holds between 200 and 500 bottles. Pricing varies; visit glenfiddich.com for more info.

This letter isn't in response to a specific article in the past issue. It is about a continuing theme of playboy and of our daily lives in the USA: our involvement in Iraq and the current Iraqi civil war. The League of Nations formed Iraq out of several nations, city-states and tribes. Some of the bor­ders reflected administrative provinces of the Ottoman Empire. Before World War I Iraq did not exist as we know it today. It is a country only in as much as foreigners (to the Iraqi people) have determined it should be. Why does the U.S. government feel com­pelled to protect Iraq's current sta­tus as a single country? The solution to the ongoing civil war, the solution that would likely be easiest to secure, is to return the borders to their more natural state. Dividing the country into several states, each representing more appropriately the cultural and racial makeup in each region, may be the only way to resolve the conflicts. If left alone to solve their governance issues, the Iraqi people may prefer this solu­tion. It worked in the Balkans. The stability of the nation of Yugoslavia once depended on a strong dictator. Without that dictator the country went

frisco. texas—Sydney McGee, an art teacher with 28 years of experience, was let go this fall in response to a complaint stemming from a school-approved field trip last April, during which she took her fifth-grade classes to the Dallas Museum of Art. One pupil told a parent about nudity in some of the artworks on display, and the parent com­plained to the school. In the wake of the complaint McGee was first reprimanded and then fired. Sound far-fetched? McGee has a memo from principal Nancy Law-son, who wrote, "During a study trip that you planned for fifth-graders, stu­dents were exposed to nude statues and other nude art representations." The Texas State Teachers Association, which has come to McGee's defense, says the incident is "the first nudity-in-a-museum case we have seen."

rio mondego. Portugal—Seeking to bring fishing in line with Olympic standards ahead of a bid to get the sport into the Games, organizers of the 2006 World Angling Championships subjected competitors to drug testing for the first time. The move surprised some fishermen. As the U.K.'s Sean Ashby reports, "At first I thought it was a windup. There are one or two jokers in the pack, and I was convinced someone was having a laugh. My first thought was, What drug could possibly help anyone catch more fish?" But experts contend stimulants such as cocaine and amphetamines could quicken reflexes and enable fishermen to set the hook more quickly when they detect a strike.

columbus. OHio-Members of the Ohio state senate and house voiced no opposition to a significant change in the rules governing the registry of sex offenders. Approved by a legis­lative panel at the behest of the state attorney general's office, the change allows citizens to be publicly identified as sex offenders—adding their name, address and photo to an Internet database and subjecting them to registration, tracking and community notification—even if they have never been charged with a crime. Instead, a county prosecutor, the state attor­ney general or even an alleged victim can peti­tion a judge to add a name to the list. People registered in this fashion, i.e. without being charged with a crime or given a trial or hear­ing, can apply for deregistration after six years. The rule change, it turns out, was suggested

THE PASSION OF PAM

NEAL GABLER
^^" ven before her mysterious death in 1962 created a cottage industry in martyrdom, Marilyn Monroe, the quintessence of the blonde American sex ^^ goddess, had already begun turning her distinction into a less than unalloyed triumph. With feminism on the horizon as Marilyn's star soared, she became the poster girl for female victimhood—a victim of the ^^ men who used and abused her; of Hollywood, which exploited her and then tossed her aside when she asserted her independence; of the disjunction between the dumb-sexy image she was forced to purvey for her fans and the sensitive soul within. Where Marilyn led, others followed. Ever since Marilyn, sex bombshells have generally had to languish in the same tragic backwash of broken relation­ships, drugs and alcohol, enforced bimboism and self-abasement, as if one needed to be punished for being alluring. But there has been one glaring exception to this pattern of sexual retribution, one woman who seems to embrace her sexuality and image without also seeming cursed by them, one woman who marches boldly where others slunk. Pamela Anderson is Marilyn without the tragedy, Jayne Mansfield without the accident, Madonna without the whir­ring gears and reinventions, Paris Hilton without the pub­licity machine and Britney Spears without Kevin Federline. She is a sex symbol without apologies or complications or affectations, which means there is no one else quite like her. One could make the claim that if Marilyn Monroe was the tremulous sex goddess of the anxiety-ridden late 20th century, Pamela's transparency makes her the reigning sex goddess of the less inhibited 21st, the blonde of our times, though even in the past century she ranked eighth in this magazine's poll of the top 100 sex stars and E! called her the ultimate blonde. From September 1995 to September 2005 Pam was the sub­ject of more searches on Lycos.com than any other person. She has launched a line of women's apparel, co-authored two

<p>Anyone who has traveled north of the bor­der into Canada knows this chilly outback possesses a certain undeniable magic. We think of it as a mysterious muse that produces great composers (Neil Young. Leon­ard Cohen, Joni Mitchell), fine liquor (Crown Royal), crisp-tasting beer (Molson) and a unique feminine charm and beauty. Mix all those ingre­dients together, add a blazing fire (ideally in a fireplace) and you've got everything any man could ever ask for.</p>

I n Key West they sell ass-shaped postcards of" bethonged rear ends that read "Fighting my way to the bottom!" for you to send your Uncle Barry. Well, they had Uncle Barrys in the Middle Ages, too, but the printing technology sucked. The bawdy expressions of the time were cast as metal brooches. Fettered Cock Pewters makes faithful reproductions of these ancient nudge-nudge jokes, as seen below ($5 each, fetteredcock pewters.com). Our favorite: Pilgrim Pussy (lower right). Pick one up for you know who.
