top dog vs. no. 1 dad

Key Questions in Pursuit of the Ideal Life Overheard “You always wonder if you could’ve done more [as a father]. You could’ve spent a little more time with him, a little more attention.” — Clint Eastwood PAGE 116 DEPT. OF RANDOM STATISTICS HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU SPEND WITH YOUR KIDS? Source: Pew Research Center Recently, The New York Times ran a profile of Ernie Els, the Hall of Fame golfer. It caught the attention of a lot of people around here, especially a quote from Els, whose game fell apart when he turned his attention away from the links to focus on his autistic son. “At 24, I was way ahead of my time as a golfer,” Els said, “but as a man I was nowhere.” This seems to suggest a binary world in which,…

the lost picture show

LAST MONTH I received an unusual email. “We’ve never met,” it began. “But you met my mother in 2005, two years before her passing.” In a position like mine, you get a lot of odd letters from total strangers; this one was from a man I didn’t know whose name was Tom Hayes. But as first sentences go, it was one of the oddest, so I read on. “You had just published the premiere issue of Men’s Vogue, and sent over a copy to her because she had given you her spare ticket to see Saving Private Ryan.” I stopped. A memory came back—a big one. It was a mystery I had been trying to solve for some eighteen years. It was actually 1998—not 2005—that it all began. There I was,…

taco 2.0

Enrique Olvera is not just the world’s leading interpreter of Mexican haute cuisine (as served at Mexico City’s Pujol and New York’s Cosme); he’s also an aficionado of the country’s street food. A second, more casual New York restaurant—as yet unnamed—is set to open this fall. His advice for making tacos at home? Don’t be afraid to experiment. “A tortilla can hold almost anything,” he says. “The most beautiful thing about tacos is that you can do whatever the hell you want.” —ROB BRUNNER THE FOUNDATION Ideally, tortillas should be made fresh. But since you probably had to go with store-bought ones, warm them in a skillet and work quickly. “The problem with premade tortillas is they break,” Olvera says. Serve your tortillas separate from the filling so that the tacos can be…

the rams butt in

EVERYBODY IN L. A. seems to be from somewhere else, especially the Rams, who have now moved here. Twice. I’m hazy on the details of the first time, because I was only a year old in 1946, but as that rare bird, a native son, I was definitely on hand when they pulled into town from Cleveland that season. Like every kid on my block, by the age of eight, I’d adopted their star pass catcher, Crazylegs Hirsch, as my first football hero, though I don’t recall ever seeing him gamboling to deity status in person or even on TV. All I knew was that the nickname Crazylegs was in the air. It was a huge improvement over smog. While the rest of the world kept moving to L.A., my family…
