Does the woman to the left look famil­iar? She should: Ashley Massaro was a finalist in the 50th Anniversary Play­mate search, then a Cyber Girl of the Week in 2004, under the pseudonym Mackenzie Ryan. Since her appear­ance in playboy Ashley has taken the crown in the WWE's RAW Diva Search, won the first-ever Bra & Panties Gaunt­let match and become a SmackDown! diva. For all her hard work, we honor her with the cover pictorial, Star Struck. "She was really thrilled with the experi­ence," says Senior Contributing Pho­tographer Arny Freytag, who shot the spread. "She's being featured here, whereas in the ring, she's one of many characters in a bigger show." Freytag admires his subject's tone and defini­tion. "But her best feature by far," he says, "is that beautiful face."

In my 25 years of enjoying your magazine, I have never stared so long at a cover as I did with January's shot of Pam Anderson (The Passion of Pain). What man, given a real shot, wouldn't want her, and what woman doesn't crave the power she projects? Some of us will never tire of her.

Your interview with "I". Boone Pick-ens (Playboy Inlemieu; January) certainly displays his skills as a booster, but for those without much experience in the oil industry, a little history is useful. As a corporate raider, Pickens did force oil companies to stop wasting money. But he also pressured companies like Unocal and Phillips Petroleum to raise their debt-to-cash-flow ratio, using the borrowed money to pay off sharehold-

AT THE BORDER
[no value]

Jimmy Breslin puts a human lace on the hypocrisy that is U.S. immigra­tion policy (The Immigration Mess, Janu­ary). For more than a decade we have worked to integrate the North Ameri­can market, with great success. At the same time, we have sought to prevent the integration of labor. To finesse this contradiction we dramatically increase our presence on the U.S.-Mexico border. Although this has had no detectable effect on the rate of undoc­umented in-migration, it has reduced the rate of out-migration. Having run the gauntlet, migrants hunker down and stay longer. As a result, the rate of out-migration has dropped by half. I cannot decide which is more absurd— building a 700-mile fence along a 2,000-mile border or spending billions of public dollars to increase the size of America's undocumented population. Douglas Massey Princeton, New Jersey Massey, a professor at Princeton, is author of Beyond Smoke and Mirrors: Mexican Immi­gration in an Age oj Economic Integration.

RECENT INVENTIONS such as pivoting heads and multiple blades have proved to be mercifully for­giving when you're groggy and in a rush. Still, proponents of the double-edge safety razor are more loyal than Cubs fans. Although their method requires more care, it offers less irritation and longer blade life. With a razor, brush, stand and bowl, the Merkur Futur Shaving Set puts a 21st century face on early 20th century technology ($200, nashvilleknifeshop.com).

NOPE, YOU'RE NOT seeing things: Nike's new Sumo2 driver ($480, nikegolf.com) has a square head. It's the Dolph Lundgren of golf clubs. (Work with us here.) Without our getting into Physics 101, the oddly shaped head offers added stability and doesn't twist as much as other drivers when you swing, so even shots from the heel or toe fly straight and far. The design adheres to USGA size limits, making it legal in tournament play.

CHESS AS WE know it developed in Europe in the 15th century, evolving from Asian origins. Back then, royalty played with pieces carved by artisans. Celebrate the tradi­tion with the Chess Scalloped set ($2,285, zontikgames .com). With an inlaid-leather playing surface and a leather-bound plinth, it's an instant classic. The pieces are fashioned in the timeless Staunton pattern, the same one used in the landmark world-cham­pionship match between Boris Spassky and Bobby Fischer in 1972. When not in use, the pieces rest comfort­ably in the plinth's suede-lined interior.

THERE ARE TWO kinds of grillers: gas guy and charcoal guy. Each is certain the other is an idiot. Here's a grill that can make both of them happy. The Fuego 01 (from $3,500, fuegoliving.com) has the sharp looks of a high-end indoor range but is made for the great outdoors, with a retractable lid and weatherproof knobs. Ample prep areas help keep things civilized, and a thermostat on the grill­ing surface tells you when to throw your meat onto the fire. Most important, though, Fuego allows you to switch from gas to charcoal grilling on the fly, proving the only real idiots are absolutists.

Jonathan Raban's article "We're Watching You" (January) brings to light some of the core issues we as a country will have to deal with in the new cen­tury. To avert a terrorist threat, most of us would gladly allow some dimin-ishment of our personal privacy. The promise of safety is difficult to ignore. But locked in a new kind of war whose rules remain vague, our government is making decisions that set us on a slip­pery slope. Systems like Echelon have been indispensable to our national secu­rity, but when the eyes of such systems are turned on American households, we as citizens are right to take notice. That gaze most certainly keeps us safer, but at what cost? Who will watch the watcher? We stand at a fulcrum between security and freedom. Weighting freedom too heavily puts us in physical jeopardy; overweighting safety may nullify the very freedom we hold dear. Finding bal-

The analogy Stephen Van Eck draws between conservatism and radical Islam in January's "Reader Response" is logically flawed at best. Let's agree that conservatives are at the forefront of the battle with radical Islam and that liberals, in large part, want nothing to do with this fight. Now let's project a victory for Muhammad's warriors and assume conservatives are either wiped out or rendered powerless. Islam is not just a religion. It makes no pre­tense of separating church and state. Since in strict Muslim societies playboy is banned, how long do you suppose

Concerning the letters in December's "Reader Response": Yes, God loves everyone. That does not mean, how­ever, he approves of everyone's sins. I am a fundamentalist and a Republican, and I feel that advocating the killing of gays and abortion doctors should be punished to the full extent of the law. But let me also point out that laws pro­tecting your readers' right to trash reli­gious fundamentalists are the same laws that protect hatemongers.

Washington, D.C.—President Bush add­ed a signing statement to the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, asserting the right to bypass federal law protecting the privacy of Americans' mail. Several laws, including the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978, make it a crime to open mail without judicial approval (though exceptions for suspected bombs already exist). Many observers believe Bush's signing statement means he has already begun or intends to begin warrantless mail snooping. Even Republicans—including Senator Susan Collins, who sponsored the original bill—have called on Bush to clarify his intent. As ACLU lawyer Ann Beeson puts it, "The question is, What does the signing statement mean? Why has he suddenly put this in writing if this isn't a change in policy?"

Philadelphia—A woman jailed for three weeks on drug charges while a freshman at Bryn Mawr College settled a lawsuit against the city for $180,000. The problem with the charges? The woman, Janet Lee, was arrested for carrying ordinary flour, albeit in condoms. At Bryn Mawr, an all-female school, flour-filled condoms are popular as a funny twist on stress-relieving Koosh balls, and Lee, apparently unaware that drug mules some­times use condoms to transport contraband, attempted to board a flight home with a few of them. A baggage screener saw the con­doms in Lee's carry-on luggage and called in city police. Officers claimed their field test showed the flour to be a mix of opium and cocaine. "Under the circumstances, some­thing went terribly wrong," says Lee's law­yer, Jeffrey Ibrahim, who can't understand how the tests could have been so flawed and why it took so long for the mistake to be corrected. In settling the case, the city admitted no wrongdoing.

"9 The Hawaiian Islands boast no shortage of killer golf resorts worth the long trip—Princeville on Kauai, Manele Bay on Lanai, Mauna Kea on the Big Island. But for an all-around good time, Wailea, on the islana of Maui, delivers the right mix of play on and off the course. Here's the lei of the land.... PLAYING: Wailea is a community full of resorts outside Kihei, on the island's southern coast. You'll want to play three courses: Wailea's Gold, Emerald and Old Blue (waileagolf.com), each a visual treat with tropical vegetation and sea vistas, all in the shadow of Maui's famous volcano, Haleakala. The Gold course is the standard: 7,078 yards, home to the annual Champions Tour Skins Game. Rugged and undulating, it is the toughest Wailea course —a true test of skill and intellect. Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed both this course and the Emerald, a scenic track that borders the Gold and is marked by wider, easier-to-hit fairways.

Hallowed Turf: Scotland

K.C.
7 A visit to golf's cradle is a necessary pilgrimage. The sport was born in the Kingdom of Fife, and you can still play on the very turf where it all began centuries ago. PLAYING:The Old Course in St. Andrews (www.standrews.org .uk) is the most important course on earth. Reserve tee times online (reservations@standrews.org.uk) or through the Old Course Hotel, but keep in mind the course is booked months in advance. The daily ballot, a tee-time lottery, is a better bet. Phone 01334-466666 the day before you want to play and cross your fingers. Golf travel firms can arrange tee times but may double the £1 25 greens fee (about $250). Your best chance to walk the hallowed turf? Arrive at sunup and be willing to split your four­some—the starter can often get singles and twosomes out early. When you do get on, be prepared For the 17th hole, the best tee shot in golf: the feared Road Hole. This is no place to wuss out. Smack your drive over the corner of the Old Course Hotel. And if you make bogey, remember what Ben Crenshaw said: "The reason the Road Hole is the greatest par four in the world is because it's a par five." Lest you prove you're a dumb Yank who thinks there's only one course in Scotland, you also need to play the adjacent New Course, opened in 1 895, which is slightly easier to get onto. Seven miles away is Kingsbarns (kingsbarns .com), a Kyle Phillips design that may be the best Scottish course of the 21 st century, and just across the Firth of Tay lies historic Car-noustie (carnoustiegolflinks.co.uk), site of this year's British Open. STAYING: The Old Course Hotel looms at the corner of the Road Hole (with shatterproof windows on that side), yet it's a bit of an eyesore. Save your pounds for homier Macdonald Rusacks (from $300, macdonald-hotels.co.uk), a Victorian throwback overlooking the 18th hole, or the delightfully tacky

Clobal warming is no joke: Meteorologists are predicting that 2007 will be the hottest year on this blue marble since th% dinos. The summer is apt to be brutal, and unless you mix drinks at a tiki bar, you can't go to work in a Hawaiian shirt and Ber­muda shorts. Not that you would anyway. You have style and class, i which means while your colleagues are sweating through their stuffy "all-season" jackets, you stay cool in a summer suit. Men's designers are now pairing lightweight fabrics like cotton, silk and

The show has featured appearances by Cen­terfold after Centerfold, including Qiana Chase, Jillian Grace, Marketa Janska, Monica Leigh, Amanda Paige, Christi Shake and Alison Waite.

Your car knows a lot about itself. Problem is, the two of you aren't really on speaking terms (and that damn cmkck kngink light seriously lacks nuance). Now instead of paying $150 for a crooked mechanic to tell you it's your alternator when it's just your wiper fluid, you can get a CarMI) ($90, carmd.com) and plug il into your car's diagnostic-port (if your car is a 1996 or later). It'll kibitz with your car's brain and immediately tell you how severe things are in general. Afterward hook the CarMI) up lo your I'C to get a full report on what's going on with your darling, from basic statistics to diagnoses of serious problems.

Elemis (timetospa.com) began in the IK. with gentle, botanically derived spa products and later branched out with a line specifically for men. The Deep Cleanse Facial Wash (S28) and recently released Daily Moisture Boost (S45) are fantastic for everyday use, and the fine Energising Skin Scrub ($46) and Post Shave Recovery Mask

Your choices in literature say as much about you as your choices in design. Now you can say something about both at once with the Self Shelf ($30, fnebox.com). This clever optical illusion makes it look as though you're holding up your books with mind power alone. Of course, the title of the brilliant work on the bottom slyly gives it away: It's not a book at all but a shelf holding the rest of them up.

Whatever your stance on global warming, we all dig a lower electric bill. A Skystream 3.7 windmill (S9.000 to SI2,000 installed, skystreamenergy .com) in your backyard could save half your kilowatt-hours each month. Simple lo operate and maintain, the generator hooks directly into your electrical system. When it makes more power than your house needs (say, at four a.m.), your meter will run backward as you upload power to the grid (if you live in one of the more than 35 states where that's allowed).

When he wasn't singing, danc­ing, acting, playing musical instruments, doing stand-up, drinking with the Rat Pack or bedding beautiful women, Sammy Davis Jr. was taking photographs. "Sammy never went anywhere without a camera," says Butt Boyar, Davis's longtime friend and the author of the new coffee-table book Photo Irs Sammy Duvis, Jr. (S50, ReganBooks). From Bogie to Bacall, James Dean to Dean Martin. Sammy captured them all on film. No one else could've gotten away with pho­tographing Sinatra in his I'Js.

Tanqueray's new Rangpur gin ($22, in liquor stores) is made with rare Rangpur limes (Citrus x limonia Osbeck), strange and juicy orange-colored spheres grown in India. Unlike any other gin we've ever tried, it is a touch sweet and citrusy, best served in the sun over ice, with a dash of tonic or cranberry if you like. Do not mix it with vermouth. For a Rangpur dirty martini, pour two shots ol chilled Tanqueray Rangpur into a cocktail glass, then drop in a naked woman named Olive.

When New York was down and dirty—like, before Starbucks—locals took their coffee in classic blue-and-white "Greek" cups. Even if the burned deli swill that came in them looked and tasted like the nearby Kast River, it cost little and furthered New York's reputation as the city that never sleeps. Those paper cups are quickly disap­pearing, but Exceptionl.ab, Inc. has immortalized them in reusable ceramic ($12, wearehappyto serveyou.com). Smart, huh? Fuhgeddaboudit!

Peerflix (peerflix.com) is a smart new alternative to DVD rent-by-mail services. You list the DVDs you want, along with ones you own but don't want anymore. When someone requests one of yours, print a postage-paid mailer on regular paper, tape it up and send. That earns you credits you can use to order DVDs on your want list. Discs you get are yours to keep, and you can cash out at any time. Very clever.
