Since being claimed by co-owner/trainer Paul Jones on March 12, Eminent Esquire has been unbeatable.

Andre 3000 is the world's best-dressed man, according to Esquire magazine. "He's a complete individual," Nick Sullivan, Esquire's fashion director, said Tuesday. "But that's really the point." Andre 3000 is the usually-over-the-top-dressed half of hip-hop duo OutKast. Some of the 30-year-old's fashion outings include: a lime green jacket at the 2004 Grammy Awards, candy apple red fur for the VH1 Big in 2003 ceremony and a pink-on-pink ensemble for the 2003 MTV Video Music Awards.

Esquire magazine has named Terry McDonell, 46, editor-in-chief. McDonell was most recently founder, president and editor of Smart, a men's magazine noted for its upscale, literary content. Smart had been financially troubled in recent months. Before Smart, McDonell was an assistant managing editor of Newsweek magazine, managing editor of Rolling Stone magazine and founding editor of Outside and Rocky Mountain magazines.
Confirming rumors that had circulated for about two weeks, the Hearst Corporation on Tuesday replaced Terry McDonell, the gruff, straight-shooting editor of Esquire magazine with Edward Kosner, editor and president of New York magazine. Hearst press releases did not explain the reasons for the shake-up, and neither D. Claeys Bahrenburg, president of Hearst Magazines, nor Alan Stiles, Esquire's publisher, would comment.

In calling a full-page advertisement offensive, I do not mean that The Times ought not to have published it, nor do I actually disagree with its message. What I find offensive is the assumption onto themselves of a term of respect by three attorneys among the board of directors of Community Memorial Hospital. I quote from Webster's Encyclopedic Unabridged Dictionary of the English Language as to the word "esquire": "an unofficial title of respect, having no precise significance, sometimes placed, especially in its abbreviated form, after a man's surname in written address."
