In the comedy The House Bunny, the character played by cover girl and 200 subject Anna Faris discovers a new sense of purpose after she is slagged by a jealous house­mate and evicted from the Playboy Mansion. In real life the sexy, spirited actress tries to avoid gossip as much as her on-screen creation does. "I stopped checking out stuff about myself on the Internet three years ago when I read something on a message board like One of Anna s boobs is way bigger than the other.'" she says. "People who ap­proach me on the street are really gracious, even though they expect me to be the way I am in the movies. It's great when someone says something nice about my appear­ance, but it's a much bigger honor and compliment when people say, 'Oh my gosh, you're so funny!'"

Eric Klinenberg should have spent less time with Rupert Murdoch and more with Craig Newmark (The End of Newspapers, June). Craigslist.org is run with more concern for public service than for profit, making it, in business-school parlance, a "bad competitor." The argument thai newspapers own a monopoly on local news holds water only if their owners invest in coverage so thorough and trustworthy that nobody else can touch it. But most owners are disinvesting, harvesting their brands to squeeze out the last dollar. Newspapers may survive if owners realize they are in the influence business. They create social influence, which is not for sale, and commercial influence, via advertis­ing. The former enhances the value of the latter by letting readers turn to one trusted source. If maintained well, the societal influence could create some­thing very much like a monopoly.

It's funny you would ask Har\ey Levin, of all people, about journalistic ethics (20(1. June). I'd respect Levin a little more if he didn't try to defend the indefensible. Instead, he has the gall to claim his gossip site, 1MZ, turned down a video of a drunken David Has-selholltaken by Hasselholl "s daughter, because it "was not meant for the pub­lic," while asserting that Alec Baldwin's leaked phone message to his 1 1-year-old daughter somehow is our business. Sleaze merchants like Levin attempt to capture the famous on their worst day—and if they can't, they manufac­ture a worst day for them.

Summer's best accessory works just as well in the fall: the web (or webbed) belt. Definitions vary, so we'll just say our favorite web belt is a canvas strip with two round or rectangular rings at one end (flag football, anyone?). See, leather belts have a problem: They're inherently formal. The web belt casualizes a suit or blazer without making it look crummy.

Overseas Buzzword Alert: Freemale

Noting the rise in apparently happy single females, Australian demographers coined the term freemale to describe an unat­tached professional woman who behaves like a carefree bach­elor. Freemales live for today, have casual sex, pay their own bills, take a pass on motherhood and love every minute of it. Newspapers in the U.K. seized on the term, debating whether such a creature can truly exist. Who knows? But at least it sounds better than "carousing jaded promiscuous financially independent spinster," which always struck us as judgmental.

AFTER SPLASHING ON his new McGraw cologne ($30, timmcgrawfragrances.com), the country superstar checks his schedule to see what goes on next. "Mostly I'm a T-shirt-and-jeans guy," he says, "but not when I have to work. My wife. Faith Hill, knows about clothes, so she helps me out with Alexander McQueen shirts, Gucci pants and Dolce & Gabbana shoes. Of course, I wouldn't know all that unless somebody told me." De­spite his designer clothing, McGraw is a cowboy at heart. "These J. Chisholm cowboy boots are the same ones I've had for 15 years, and I wear the same Stetson all the time—at least until it gets awful-looking." What then? "I hate wearing a new hat. It takes about three rainy days and a lot of sweat to get the right look and feel."

IF THE BALL goes in the hole, we don't care what the club looks like. Okay, that's not en­tirely true. Luckily, in this case we don't have to choose between performance and aesthetics. TaylorMade's face-balanced Rossa Monza Spi­der putter ($200, taylormadegolf.com) not only sports a bold design, it is remarkably stable, with minimal impact twist thanks to its high moment of inertia. Moveable weights allow you to cus­tomize its feel. No wonder this baby has bagged so many tour wins in the past six months.

TIVOLI AUDIO MAKES tabletop radios that have impeccable sound and phenomenal reception. Their coverage area just got a whole lot wider. The Tivoli Audio Networks radio ($750, tivoliaudio.com) uses built-in Wi-Fi to pull in Net radio from around the world, whether you want the free-form madness of Jersey City's WFMU or Arabic pop from Morocco's Radio Yabiladi. Plus you can wirelessly stream MP3s from your computer or plug in a USB flash drive full of music. Of course, if too much choice frightens you, you can still tune in old-fashioned terrestrial stations.

Randall Terry is a contradictory man ("Will Roe v. Wade Continue to Stand?" July). He compares abortion to the Holocaust, yet, like Hitler, he tries to scare the public into believing his views. He considers himself a liber­tarian, yet he wants to take the choice to have an abortion out of a woman's hands and give it to the government. He claims there can be no right and wrong without God, yet plenty of agnostics and atheists lead moral, crime-free lives. Abortion should be a debate between a woman and her doc­tor, not politicians or priests.

Regarding the June 2008 article "Has­sled by the Mann Act." I agree whole­heartedly with the editors: The Mann Act has to go, and it needs to take the Corn-stock Act with it. Both are examples of misguided, poorly drafted, anachronis­tic morals legislation prone to selective, often politically motivated enforcement. They sit beneath the surface like unex-ploded ordnance from some long-ago war, forgotten but still ready to go oil at any moment with no warning and with devastating consequences.

Philadelphia A consortium of atheists placed a billboard beside 1-95, the East Coast's main north-south artery, to direct attention to its website, phillycor.org. According to businessman Steve Rade (pictured), who spearheaded the effort and donated the $22,500 necessary to keep the ad up from May through August, "Our mission is not to convince fundamentalists to change their position. What we want to do is give people who are questioning their beliefs a place to go for more information and to meet like-minded people." Rade says he has "ab­solute certainty" there is no God and no afterlife. "I'd like everyone to believe what I do. I think it would be a better world if they did." His desire to connect with fellow nonbelievers led to the ad. He contacted the American Humanist Association in Washington, D.C. to ask about finding a group in his area. What he found was disarray: There were many associations but no coordination between them. He gathered leaders from various groups and convinced them to create an umbrella organization, the Greater Philadelphia Coalition of Reason. Why the need to band together? The U.S. has the lowest percentage of self-described atheists of any indus­trialized nation. No wonder Fred Edwords, direc­tor of communications for the American Humanist Association, says, "We feel we're the last minority group it's okay to say bad things about."

FAST

Ken Gross
This has been the quintessential question for drivers of fast cars since the automobile's inception. "Doing a ton" is the British expression for exceeding the 100 mph mark on the road. A three-liter Bent-ley did it in 1921. It took another 66 years before a Ferrari F40 could^ double that speed, and a little mot than a quarter of that time befo Bugatti Veyron 16.4 excee< Just a few months ago a n came along and set the ba higher: 256 mph. In a trul duction car, you'll need nen steel—not to mention a steady mj the wheel and lightning-fast re ^pns—to get near 200 mph. If you make any corrections at that speed, you must do them precisely or you'll career off the road. The view through the windshield brings to mind a giant vacuum cleaner frantically sucking up everything in your path. The engine's earn is loud and shrill, and the id is suddenly much narrower. You can barely look at the speedometer. You don't dare...but you can't resist.

The Internet has given rise to a subculture of fun seekers who communicate with nymity. Whatever you're into—a little "half and half," perhaps—someone keen to join you is just a mouse click away. Don't believe ? Have a look at your area's Craigslist personals, under "Casual Encounters," for mw4mw listings (man and woman for man and Oman).
