Rust never sleeps! And in news of the recently avenged liberal media elites … former Esquire writers and editors flock (via public transportation!) to the New York Public Library to pay tribute to Rust Hills, recently deceased and legendary former Esquire fiction editor and a representative of magazine publishing’s golden age, before the rise and subsequent fall of Men’s Vogue. Paying tribute are novelists James Salter and Richard Ford and former Esquire editors in chief Terry McDonell and Lee Eisenberg, among others in tweed.
