I have a little crush on Jim Nelson, editor at GQ. The best section of any magazine is the Editor’s letter, and his is always one of my favorites, even if I think he makes some outlandish correlations from time to time, and has some kind of weird obsession with the Tea Party (but to me, everyone living in the US has a weird obsession with the Tea Party – don’t people realize that outside of the US, nobody knows what’s going on with all of that?). He has a very endearing look of an underfed writer, but is tailored enough to take himself out of the starving artist category, and has a vocabulary to die for. Also, clearly he has a good skin care regime as it doesn’t betray his age at all.
Also, if you haven’t yet seen it, GQ’s Lonely Planet Guide for Deposed Dictators? Brilliant.
