SURF, SAND AND SEX

Ivan Boesky, once Wall Street’s most infamous inside trader, is enjoying good health, new wealth and a satisfying sex life. Out of jail after serving a two-year sentence and living in La Jolla, Calif., Boesky, 55, is portrayed by associates as a hedonist who spends his days weightlifting and cavorting with “young girls” in his mountaintop home, while cashing monthly $15,000 alimony cheques from his wealthy ex-wife.

Once, in the dark ages of television, your agent occupied a chair on a panel putting the usual penetrating questions to an expert guest (“Gee whiz, sir, do you think you’ll win the Stanley Cup this year?”).

There’s an apocryphal story making the rounds these days about the darkest days of the Cold War, when every Revolution Day the Soviet Union would show off its latest means of mass destruction by staging an elaborate military parade past the Kremlin.

For years now, politicians the world over have been accusing the media of being negative—carefree critics, totally devoid of positive proposals.
