With more than 200 stories to his credit and the novel Duma Key coming next month, Stephen King continues to en­thrall us with his dark, disturbing imagi­nation. In his latest short story, Mute, a traveling salesman whose terrain is King's fictitious Maine picks up a hitch­hiker and pours out his heart about his wife's infidelity. Then it gets eerie. "I don't think there is a monster in every man, but I think there's one in most men," King has said. "I think most men are wired to perform acts of violence, usually defensive, but we're still primi­tive creatures, and we have a tendency toward violence." One can't help but wonder if a man who easily gives others nightmares sleeps well at night. "People ask me, 'Do you have bad dreams?1" he says. "And the answer is yes. When I don't write, I get bad dreams."

I read Teller Speaks (September) with great interest. The writer is fascinated by Teller's genius at not talking onstage in our show. I'm mentioned, in pass­ing, as the one who lalks. I'm the one in whom the "secret power of silence" isn't. Okay, that's fine. Teller is my business partner. He says in the article that we're not really friends. Well, then, let me speak freely.

As a longtime high-performance-car enthusiast and mechanical engi­neer, I can describe American Muscle (September) only as entertaining. The horsepower figures you quote for the older cars are myths: The evidence is incontrovertible to those of us who understand the principles of engine design and have actual racing experi­ence, as well as access to vintage road tests, dynamometer tests, National Hot Rod Association records, etc. Unfortu­nately, current sources tend to focus solely on the most impressive statistics for the older muscle cars, usually fail­ing to mention the significant modifica­tions required to achieve them. 1 realize playboy isn't Hot Rod, but you have a responsibility to print the truth.

Kudos to John H. Richardson for The RedClouds Revolution (September), which dispels the sordid stereotype that people who share explicit photos of themselves must be perverts or freaks. We have always loved to play the role of Peeping Tom as he ogles Lady Godiva, and technology has made it that much easier. The men, women and couples who create "reality porn" for sites such as RedClouds seem to be looking for something other than 15 minutes of Warholian fame. That many contributors choose to blur or hide their faces is a sad commentary on our society's continuing squeamishness about human sexuality-Clay Calvert

Playmates are perfect, and perfec­tion, as any dictionary will tell you, is that which cannot be improved upon. So is there no way to better the Playmate videos featured in the Playboy Cyber Club? As a matter of fact, there is—by definition, as in high definition. Playmate Xtra videos are now available in HD (that's 720p in geek speak) at cyber.playboy.com. Perfect as always—yet better.

SOME PEOPLE BALK at paying more for their iPod dock than they did for their iPod. The colloquial term for these people is morons. If you want to listen out loud and watch with friends, do yourself a favor and pony up for a good experience. From top: Altec Lansing inMotion iMV712 ($350, alteclansing.com): For sharing the show or watching hands-free, this 8.5-inch LCD screen with three-speaker audio system is a great choice. Wrapped in a handsome piano-black finish, it allows you to plug in audio and video from non-iPod sources. Harman/Kardon Go + Play ($350, harmankardon.com): For those who want to take the party with them, this boom box nouveau runs on batteries or AC power and packs a pair of rear-firing woofers plus 30-watt tweeters to deliver serious audio ammo. Rock, hip-hop and jazz all feel substantial, even in wide-open spaces. Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin ($600, bowers-wilkins.com): This two-foot-wide stainless-steel sculpture reproduces music with both power and subtlety, thanks to audiophile-quality tweeters and midrange drivers on each side, as well as a substantial subwoofer. There's enough power here to fill even a large room easily, and tricky digital-signal processing automatically tweaks the audio output for the volume you've cho­sen, whether it's Regina Spektor across the table or Page, Plant and Bonham (we couldn't resist) from 30 feet away.

The Orgy sofa and ottoman ($14,000, karimrashidshop.com) from design star Karim Rashid are beautiful pad pieces with a built-in theme. The rounded sofa back facilitates relaxed interaction, and when you slide the ottoman in, you get ample surface area for you and your friends to stay comfortable even in the most strenuous of contor­tions. Now that's putting some funk into function.

FIVE THINGS YOU may not know about Wyoming's Jackson Hole Mountain Re­sort: (1) It has 4,139 vertical feet of skiing, the most continuous lift-served terrain in North America. (2) Half the slopes are expert. Jackson Hole is regarded as the nation's most-likely-to-break-your-leg resort. (3) The new Couloir Restaurant and Bar opens this season, at the top of Bridger Gondola Summit (9,095-foot elevation)—swanky dining with views of the stars and Corbet's Couloir, often called America's scariest ski slope. (4) The resort's first eco-boutique hotel, Hotel Terra (from $395 a night, hotel terrajacksonhole.com) opens at the base this month: romantic rooms, a fine wine list, a reduced carbon footprint, a walk to the gondola. (5) Until you've skied this mecca, you haven't lived.

TIES ARE A focal point for your creation. Rep stripes, whether to signal membership in an elite club or to show the audacity of the wearer, never go out of style, as evidenced by these two specimens. The middle tie, from Canali ($120, www.canali.it), offers a late-autumn feel, while the Ermenegildo Zegna tie, on the right ($150, zegna.com), is tastefully reminiscent of a candy cane.

FINALLY COME THE shoes. After the black oxford, the classic brown wingtip, or brogue, is the most ver­satile shoe to have on hand or, in this case, foot. This one from Canal i (top, $580, www.canali.it) fits the bill with simple, unassuming lines that don't com pete for the spotlight. Monk straps, like this black one from Ermenegildo Zegna Couture (middle, $675), are appropriate for fine suits and offer a refreshing depar­ture from lace-ups. On rare occasions you can meld the two, as Fratelli Rossetti (bottom, $525, rossetti .it) does with this dip-dyed beauty. (Note the subtle depth of pigment concentrated at the toe.)

PLAYBOY INDONESIA

Having read about playboy Indonesia's problems ("Playboy of the Muslim World," September), I thought your readers might appreciate a lighter side of the story. Last year a popular joke going around Jakarta was that playboy Indonesia should indeed have been prosecuted—for brand fraud. You see, the Indonesian version of playboy is seen here as being de-eroticized. Scin-tillatingly sexual material—never mind the real thing—is already freely available, making many wonder how playboy would compete. Given these facts, what was all the fuss about? Branding and American power. The thuggish Islamists were simply reacting emotionally to a powerful global icon that is more symbolic of America and the sexual revolution than Coca-Cola, Nike or MTV. How do we know this? Because the local versions of FHM, ME, Popular and even Vogue and Cosmopolitan are visually steamier and also have torrid sex-advice columns. Americans would be amazed to see how much skin and sex talk are tolerated in other magazines, none of which has attracted the rage of the Islamic Defenders Front. In essence it is protesting

I wish to add one last thing to the debate about Frederick Barthelme's "Help Wanted" (June). New Orleans is finished, done, gone, and we'd all better get used to it. Rather than seek healing, we should take off our rose-tinted glasses and ask how we ever let anyone live there, 20 feet below sea level, thumbing their collective noses at mother nature. I lost my house in a 2003 flood caused by Hurricane Isabel, which devastated Maryland's Chesapeake Bay waterfront. My insurance paid, but it was capped at $250,000. We were required to build new houses above the floodplain so it wouldn't happen again (that is, so tax­payers wouldn't have to bail us out again). We weren't given building permits to rebuild at the same level, as the city of New Orleans has allowed. We didn't get extra federal money beyond the existing insurance, though FEMA did offer us a trailer. I visited New Orleans before Katiina and took a sightseeing ride down the river. We were looking over the levees at rooftops, and I wondered at the time who in their right mind would live there just waiting for a disaster. What's wrong with this country is that the people who

You are right on the money with your nuclear-power article in the July issue ("Greens for Nukes"). I would like to add some insight as to how nuclear power can be a catalyst for energy' change at the gas pump. Nuclear-generated electricity gives us wide latitude to do things we can't do with other energy sources. This relatively cheap electricity permits us to derive hydrogen and oxygen from sea-water, which is impractical with other energy sources. Once we have hydro­gen, a wide world of energy indepen­dence opens to us. Without dramatically changing our automobile engines, we can produce low-emission motor fuels. Hydrogen can be reacted with the global-warming gas CO., to produce methane, which can be used as a very low-pollution motor fuel, as well as an interim fuel source for decades. Nuclear power will eliminate the inefficient con­version of food crops into fuel. At one time, the United States set the bench-

Washington. D.c—An evangelical enter­tainment group called Operation Straight Up is working with an official arm of the Defense Department's America Supports You program, on what OSU describes as a "crusade in Iraq." It is distributing Bibles and copies of a video game based on the Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins Left Behind books as part of its care packages. "The Constitution has been assaulted and brutalized," says Mikey Weinstein, a Ron­ald Reagan-era White House counsel and ex-Air Force judge advocate general who runs the Military Religious Freedom Foundation. "Thanks to the influence of extreme Christian fundamentalism, the wall separating church and state is noth­ing but smoke and debris. And OSU is the IED that exploded the wall separat­ing church and state in the Pentagon and throughout our military."

Washington, dc. After a lawsuit between the federal government and two peaceful protesters was settled, White House spokesman Blair Jones said, "The parties understand that this settlement is a compromise of disputed claims to avoid the expenses and risks of litigation and is not an admission of fault, liability or wrongful conduct." The problem with this characteriza­tion? The protesters, Jeff and Nicole Rank, had been removed from a public, taxpayer-funded Fourth of July event at which the president was speaking, because they were wearing anti-Bush T-shirts. The couple made no disruptions, the shirts contained no vulgar language, and the event was held on the West Virginia statehouse grounds. Yet, at the behest of the White House event staff, the two were handcuffed, finger­printed, charged with trespassing and detained in jail for several hours. As a result Nicole Rank was temporarily suspended from her job. One particularly eye-opening document came out of the legal proceedings: A heavily redacted ver­sion of the Presidential Advance Manual, dated October 2002, was made public, revealing how the White House manicures its audiences. Most surprising is how much importance the manual puts not on hiding protesters from the media but on shielding the president from protesters.

DAVID KAPLAN
o sporting event in America draws more viewers than the NCAA tourna­ment. It's bigger than the World Series, bigger than the Super Bowl. March is the month of madness that sees more money dumped into Vegas sports books than any other time of the year. Amid all the hoopla it's easy to forget these athletes are ama­teurs. They play for all the right reasons: school pride, love of the game and, yes, for some, future NBA paychecks.

Strip mini golf is one of life's great pleasures, but for reasons we can't fathom it's still frowned on at our local putt-putt course. Rather than sneaking in at midnight to get in a few holes, pick up My Mini Golf ($420, unicahome .com). The kit lets you lay out a custom set of microlinks in and around your home, with nine holes and up to 13 handi­caps, including loops, bridges, twists and more. We won't reveal our fiendish personal blueprint here, but suffice it to say the Grotto makes one hell of a water hazard.

Hollywood's adoration of speed peaked in the 1960s, and at the top was Steve McQueen, the king of cool. You remember the Ford Mustang GT fastback he drove in Biillill (1968), his Triumph motorcycle in The Great Escape (1963) and his Gulf-Porsche racing car from I.e Minis (1971). Now comes a coffee-table book by Matt Stone, McQueen's Machines: The Cars and Hikes of a Hollywood Icon, which details those his­toric rides. It also takes you inside McQueen's garage for a look at his beloved Jag XK-SS roadster and the 1963 Ferrari 250 GT Berlinetta Lusso (pictured) that sold at auction this past summer for just over $2.3 million. Think of this book as a love story. It was good to be king.

The bottle struck us first. You can't look at it without thinking of a deeply sun­tanned couple having sex on a beach in France. (At least we can't.) Then we tasted: apricot marmalade, walnut, lemon zest, a hint of chocolate. Martell, the oldest of the major cognac producers (founded in 1715), has launched its latest bottling. Creation Grand Extra ($300, in fine liquor stores). For a perfect nightcap, pair it with a La Aurora 100 Anos cigar.

Billiards master Willie Mosconi knew how to work the felt. He could run table after table and pull off elaborate trick shots. But all his talent could not keep a bottle of wine from turning. Mr. Pocket Billiards would have enjoyed these authentic vintage-billiard-ball wine stoppers ($32, sterlingplace.com). They're mounted on cork to keep your half-empty vintage bottles as true as Willie's game.
