We all dream of getting out. Delivering a few choice words to the boss, draining the bank account and valiantly absconding to Panama. We'll tell you how to do it in Exit Strategy on page 82. But in a counterpoint, Paul Theroux reminds us we are authors of much of our own misery and that no matter how far you go, you always bring your worst traits along for the ride.

I know PLAYBOY has a long and rich history of hard-hitting journalism, but you knocked it out of the park two issues in a row. First there was Thomas Frank’s expose of Glenn Beck (The Triumph of the Conservative Underground, December) and now Aram Roston reveals the bogus intelligence behind those federal terror alerts (The Man Who Conned the Pentagon, January/ February).

Los Angeles's modernist architecture is defined by the city's climate, opulence and clash of cultures (Asian, Latino, Hollywood Hebrew). Thomas Hines's new Architecture of the Sun: Los Angeles Modernism, 1900-1970 (Rizzoli) is a thorough study of the work of Schindler, Neutra, Wright and the inimitable John Lautner.

Back in 1979 we first heard Neil Young's anthem on aging: “It's better to burn out than to fade away.” Turns out the 64-year-old rocker refuses to do either. The Jonathan Demme-directed concert film Neil Young Trunk Show has been making the film festival rounds, and Young's first book, The Neil Young Journal: 1945-1972, will hit stores this spring.

Stacie Hougland
Bringing a whiff of fresh air to the romantic dramedy is Up in the Air, a witty, thoughtprovoking and sometimes devastating look at a solitary lothario who cares little about interpersonal relationships or the baggage they bring. As a “career transition counselor," Ryan Bingham (George Clooney, in a career-best performance) flies cross-country firing employees for corporate bosses afraid to do it themselves (call it “inhuman resources") and enjoys the rarefied stratosphere of members-only status thanks to his millions of airline miles, Things change when he meets his female alter ego Alex (Vera Farmiga: “Just think of me as yourself, only with a vagina") and an idealistic trainee (Anna Kendrick).

The first God of War (2005) was a bloodsoaked sleeper hit that redefined action video games. Its follow-up, God of War II (2007), was the best game to come out on the PS2, period. And now the same writers, voice actors and coders who brought you the first two games offer the final chapter in Kratos's tragic, savage journey.

BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY 2 (360, PC, PS3) There's more than a few military shooters out there, but this game's gripping storytelling, four-player co-op and likable, over-the-top personalities found a place in our hearts. Plus, you can destroy almost any object you see, the squad-based multiplayer is nuts, and the graphics are incredibly crisp and visceral.

Dead people rarely make good music. (And they sure don't give good interviews.) As his new album proves, Jimi Hendrix is the exception. The amount of music he released before dying in 1970, at the age of 27, is as scant as his influence is massive: four albums, one of which was live, and a few singles.

Working from home has many advantages, but sometimes you just need to get out. Into the backyard, that is. The premise behind the radical work space called OfficePOD ($24,000, officepod.co.uk) is that while more and more people work from home these days, no one can be expected to do his best work in the place where he does his prime playing (our founder excepted, of course).

Driving a sports car in the city is like keeping a tiger on a leash: a wasteful extravagance bristling with power you can't truly enjoy. The idea behind Aston Martin's Cygnet concept car is to keep the luxury but lose the muscle. It's based on the Toyota iQ, a 1.3-liter four-cylinder car that gets upward of 50 miles to the gallon.

ARIEL DORFMAN
Barrera liked to tell everyone that he hardly slept at night. No more than a few hours, a few winks, that's what he liked to report to his son each morning, with a smile on his face, almost triumphantly, as if the persistence over the years of that alleged insomnia were a bizarre medal of honor, proof of some strange superiority over other mortals.

One morning not long ago, Amy Leigh Andrews awoke and checked her e-mail. "I screamed at the top of my lungs!" she now says. She found a note she had dreamed of receiving all her life. “Hef has approved you for Centerfold,” the missive read. “You can’t understand,” explains the tiny but voluptuous blonde who embodies both brains and liberated sexuality. “Some girls dream of becoming The Little Mermaid's Ariel, but not me.

In a survey conducted earlier this week, 1,000 American blondes were asked if they would sleep with Tiger Woods. Eighty-nine percent responded, “Never again.” Say when,” the man said to his date as he poured her a cocktail. She breathlessly replied, “Right after this drink.”

François Rabelais once wrote, "Appetite comes with eating, and thirst departs I with drinking." If that is the case, then why am I sitting, eyes glazed over, in front of a half finished plate of stuffed pigs' feet with foie gras over mashed potatoes and yet still quaffing beyond the point of inebriation?

PLAYBOY: Your new movie, MacGruber, is a parody of the 1980s TV show MacGyver. MacGyver and MacGruber could defuse a bomb with just a paper clip and some dental floss. Are you as cunning and resourceful? FORTE: The only thing I have in common with those two is a fierce determination.

Ask what the best way to detox quickly from the bender of all benders is and you'll get a wide variety of oddly authoritative opinions. The answers range from taking Suboxone (a drug that helps heroin addicts kick the habit) to drinking copious amounts of alkaline water to guzzling a quart of green juice with garlic and ginger to lengthy yoga sessions.

It's fairly normal, I think, this dream of fleeing to a paradise and living happily ever after under the palms with a sultry beauty. The poster child is Arthur Rimbaud, who gave up poetiy at the age of 19 and ended up in the walled city of Harar in Abyssinia with a dusky mistress, became a coffee merchant and a gunrunner and never wrote a word again.

Like the word Playmate, the words Guess girl bring to mind an immediate connotation. You think of an impossible beauty shot in some cool locale: a gas station, poolside, stepping out of a 1957 Chevy. She's always cutting-edge, and yet there's a retro chicness about her, a nod to the great sex symbols of the 1960s.

SHARON ZUKIN
When I was 17 and left my parents’ house in Philadelphia for a college dorm in upper Manhattan, I found a cultural melting pot that fed my fantasies of urban life. Crowds on every street! Neon nights, makeshift clubs, poets and writers hanging out in dingy cafés! Times Square was a crazy theater of the absurd, and in the East Village hippies were running wild.

Malise Ruthven’s apology for the hijab worn by many Muslim women (“Decoding the Veil,” January/February) contains a number of flaws, but two stand out. First, Ruthven ignores coercion. After a period in the 1950s and 1960s during which women across the Muslim world took off their veils, the religious right fought back.

WASHINGTON, D.C—The Christian cross is no longer just for Christians, according to Antonin Scalia. While hearing arguments in a First Amendment case, the Supreme Court justice expressed surprise that a cross planted in a war memorial on public land couldn’t also be seen to honor Jewish, Muslim or atheist soldiers.
