[Technology - 05/07/99]

.Amy Reiter/Nothing Personal Monica sued for causing injuries; it's hard being Hef; but really, really tough being Liam; Hasselhoff throws in the towel.
[People - 05/07/99]

.James Poniewozik We are all page-view whores now: Now that we online journalists know exactly what people want to read, we've got to find something that'll stop us from -- horrors! -- giving it to them.

[Mothers Who Think - 05/06/99]

.Cintra Wilson Survival of the cutest: Hot young magician David Blaine gets all the love while the best tricksters get hardly any.
[People - 05/05/99]

.Joe Conason Were they Nazis? The Littleton high school killers' fascination with Hitler and black metal suggest the possible influence of a fascistic youth subculture that has inspired horrific violence elsewhere.

[Arts & Entertainment - 05/03/99]

.Susie Bright How much wood? Jack was green-lighted by the directors based on his entirely unproven belief that he could provide erections for their camera at the crack of a starting board. But could he actually do it?
[Health & Body - 05/01/99]

.Anne Lamott A heart's breath: Whether it happens in war-torn Kosovo or a Hawaiian resort, suffering should be greeted with compassion.
[Mothers Who Think - 04/29/99]

[People - 04/28/99]

.Garrison Keillor/Mr. Blue He took me to sexual heights I didn't know existed, but after six years he still won't commit. I can't get him out of my mind. Is this normal? Advice for lovers and writers.
[Books - 04/27/99]

.David Horowitz Enemy of the people: There's nothing like going on a speaking tour of America's pricey liberal arts colleges to show just how ensconced the politically correct elite has become -- and how frightened they are by the appearance of an outspoken right-winger.
[News - 04/26/99]

.Ruth Shalit Out of focus: A peep through the one-way mirror at that great American institution, the focus group, reveals a glittering lineup of cheaters, repeaters and sad sacks who wash their hair with Jell-O.
[Media - 04/23/99]
