Let's get it out of the way right at the start. I don't think I have ever read an article on eyeglass fashions that did not quote Dorothy Parker's idiotic couplet: Men seldom make passes At girls who wear glasses. And I would hate to create a startling precedent. It is one of those useful quotations that are so blatantly untrue that one can bounce all kinds of indignant responses off them. Like: My mother wears glasses, so how come I'm in the world?

In a year in which so much rode on one's image--from the presidential race on down--it seems fitting that National Media Corp. would wind up one of the hottest stocks of 1992. You may not know this Philadelphia company, but you probably know their business: TV "infomercials," those ubiquitous cable and network shows that sort of look like news, but really are staged programs used to sell products.
