Esquire magazine, particularly its Style Blog, has big worries that start with one side of Joe Flacco's face and stretch, hairily, to the other. It's the unibrow. And they want him to lose it -- now -- lest it becomes a trend, leading to what they think could be a terrifying unibrowification of America. Style Blog writer Kurt Soller threw down his demands Wednesday in a post called, "How to Fight the Forthcoming Unibrow Nation. " He Posted right about the time Twitter was lighting up with people mocking Flacco's boast of being the best quarterback in the NFL. With Flacco and his face fur so in the news, coming right on another very public unibrown showing -- Anthony Davis and his Kentucky Wildcats triumphing in the NCAA championship game -- Esquire was concerned.

I did a bit of a double-take when I saw the Pitt-tastic cover of this weekend's Entertainment Weekly . Clearly, the designers at the magazine have been reading a bit too much Esquire . The cover looks exactly like one of those fancy Esquire covers, minus the faux-handwritten headlines.  Don't know if this is intentional, an homage or outright stealing.  Oh well. We have a preview of the interview inside (on newsstands Friday, in which Pitt candidly discusses a variety of topics.

A new editor, Edward Kosner, takes the reins of Esquire with the March issue. Formerly of Newsweek and then New York magazine, Mr. Kosner appears to have Three-P impulses -- pop, practical, piecemeal. Along with a monthly guide to "a subject vital to a man's life" (read: sex and pecs) and a Harper's-esque collection of excerpts from new literary books, there's a section called "Reality Check" with gossipy, much-ado-about-nothing snippets on the New York and Los Angeles elite.*Mr. Kosner's pop impulse brings us a juicy insider cover article on the casting of Tom Cruise in the $50 million movie of Anne Rice's "Interview with the Vampire."

Should auld acquaintance be forgot? Heck, no. Not when we can greet the new year by skewering the worst of the old, with the help of two magazines that never have any trouble finding the jugular: Spy and Esquire.With its usual boundless appetite for spite, the February Spy roughs up the "100 Worst People, Places & Things of 1995" -- a year the magazine describes as "perhaps the most annoying, alarming and appalling year in history." As proof, with a cry of "Dear God, He's Back!" Spy notes the return to the limelight of its favorite short-fingered vulgarian: Donald Trump.

Jessica Biel has been proclaimed "the sexiest woman alive" by Esquire magazine. The actress dons the cover of Esquire's November issue, following last year's honoree, Angelina Jolie. The 23-year-old Biel, who began as a teenager on the family TV series 7th Heaven, plays a supporting role in the coming Elizabethtown and starred this year in Stealth. "It seemed like it would be great -- having named Angelina Jolie sexiest woman of the year last year -- to try to come up with somebody who was on everyone's radar screen, but who was also fresh," said Esquire editor in chief David Granger.

Woody Allen looks his schleppy, pre-scandal self on Esquire's October cover, smiling his inscrutable-nebbish smile. But, unfortunately, the article sweats and strains to reinvent Woody as the Wronged Papa for Our Time: "As a father denied, he has found unexpected bravado that is sometimes a thrill to behold."You can feel writer Bill Zehme bursting veins trying to lift Woody's reputation, leading us on a pathos-laden tour of Satchel Farrow's bedroom and dropping quaint details like "Friends love to recall the notorious incident of Woody and Satchel mixing cake batter and adding the frosting before baking."

Not to boast or anything, but I'm a guy.Before reading the May Esquire I wouldn't have thought that was anything to be especially proud of. Now I know better: It's in to be male -- and not just any kind of male, but a male male.According to Harry Stein, we are entering the age of the post-sensitive man. Rush Limbaugh and Howard Stern rule the radio waves, David Letterman rules late night, Robert Waller rules the best-seller lists -- and when was the last time you saw Alan Alda in anything other than a "M*A*S*H" rerun?

On Facebook, Paul Lagasse posed this question: " Okay, my editorial friends, please help me settle a bar bet. Is using the wrong spelling of a word (e.g., 'principle' instead of 'principal') considered a typo? Or does the term 'typo' not include such errors? " As is my custom, I gave him an "it depends" answer (Not a good idea to ask me to settle bar bets): " If the person doesn't know the distinction, it's an error of ignorance. If the person does know the distinction, it's a typo.

William Donald Schaefer turned 85 yesterday, and he celebrated at the main Pratt Library with hundreds of friends and cake. A lot of cakes, actually. Eight-five of them. That's enough cake to keep a team of six bakers whipping and folding for a day, and sink six decorators up to their elbows in buttercreams, cream cheese frosting and chocolate drizzle for two and a half more. Lots of times at big events like weddings, there's one fancy cake for show - and a plain sheet cake back in the kitchen.
