    In today's mailbox, the July issue of Esquire.
    Haven't dug deep into it, but a nice story from Charlie Pierce.

    The layout (is it a redesign?) for the entire issue is confusing.

    The story where the guy applied for 300 jobs and had no luck was pretty telling of how things are to most of us right now.

    And holy balls, the Stephen King piece was pretty fucked up.

    I usually try to stretch Esquire out over a month, make it last until the next one gets here. I couldn't do it with this one. Everything in there was a must-read. And there was Bar Rafaeli. The piece about the Mexican hit men was thoroughly engrossing. And yes, SK is FUBAR. But then we all knew this. He's turned a personality disorder into a pretty good living.

    Who apparently is on the market, Leo DiCrappio having tired of her, reportedly.

    Read the Pierce story. It's a bit disjointed but you have to give him credit- he obviously has not completely gone into the tank for Obama. like much of the liberal media. It's sounds like he is still not convinced.

    This month, The Jones endorses drinking beer in a can. Notwithstanding his point that a beer can also is used as a bong, I must disagree. You let me down, Jonesie.

    Otherwise, this is the best read out there. Period.

    You're talking about how the stories flow into each other? Yeah, I didn't like it either.

    I bagged Esquire a few years ago and thought I would miss it. It seemed to me like they were getting away from solid writing and moving more towards Maxim. Is it worth checking out again? I am more a "Family Handyman" guy now. Getting old sucks.

    Still plenty of excellent writing, Carlton. I'm getting fairly old, too, but Esquire is still one of my favorites. I haven't read this issue yet.

    It's not remotely like Maxim, which I invariably pick up once a year when I'm suckered in by the cover, only to find it completely unreadable.

    Great read most months, this included. Bar photos/story are compelling. Format change is minimally distrurbing. Good stuff here. Must read for me, cover to cover.
