America lost a great philosopher this year with the death of Henry Ford II. It was Ford who gave the world the advice, "Never apologize. Never explain. " After plowing through the moldy remnants of the columns that appeared under this byline in the last 52 weeks, I understand the wisdom of that view. I am strongly tempted to take my stand with Oliver North, Gary Hart, Jim Bakker and other heroes of 1987 who have rested their hopes on the public's amnesia. Forgive and forget is my motto, too. Why rehash the mistakes and misjudgments of the past year when 1988 offers so many chances for a political reporter to goof again?

Would you buy a used car from a man in a bow tie? Not likely, says a New York "image consultant. " Neckties, writes John T. Molloy in the current issue of Success magazine, are the "heraldic shields of 20th-century corporate America. " Molloy, author of the best-selling advice book Dress for Success, urges groomed-to-zoom business executives to wear only diagonally striped "rep" ties or patterned "club" ties. "To the most sophisticated executives, it announces that you are a member of his club," according to Molloy.

In the hustle and bustle of Christmas, it's sometimes tough to remember that New Year's Eve is just a week away. Yes, before you know it, it will be time to ring out the old and ring in the new. Time to make resolutions - lose those 20 pounds, exercise more often, quit smoking, straighten those closets, balance that checkbook, be nice to the neighbor's dog . . . For those who would like to have a little fun first, In General, 634 South St.,...

W. Thacher Longstreth made one faux pas Tuesday morning at the 25th birthday celebration of the Longstreth Elementary School in Warminster. The tall, lanky Philadelphia City Council member wore his trademark argyle socks, but he didn't wear his other trademark: a bow tie. But most of the 632 students at the school did, although the ties were made of construction paper and decorated with crayons. "I want to thank everybody for wearing a bow tie," he said. "Unfortunately, I almost always wear a bow tie, but today I wore a non-bow tie essentially because it has footballs on it and tonight is my grandson's football banquet.

In a new series of political campaign commercials being televised in Iowa, Democratic presidential candidate Paul Simon devotes the entire 30 seconds of one ad to his familiar bow tie. "Now, it's more than a symbol for me," the liberal Illinois lawmaker declares as drawings of him wearing bow ties are flashed on the screen. "My bow tie is, in a sense, my declaration of independence. "I'm going to be my own person," Simon continues. "You have to take me for what I am. " Talking about a bow tie is not exactly a weighty subject for a presidential contender, given concern about nuclear proliferation, the federal budget deficit and the future of the economy.

Am I interested in auditioning to be on Bill Cosby's new quiz show? You bet your life! It'd be great fun. And, hey, a Stu Bykofsky column two weeks ago said partners on the program could walk away sharing more than $16,000. So I dialed the phone number. "When can you make it?" asked a woman at Cosby Central. "Can you come Thursday at 10 a.m.?" This Thursday? Ten a.m.? But that's during working hours . . . So I went to the boss. "How long will it take?" she asked.

NBC brought out the big guns last week for TV critics gathered here: Brokaw, Chancellor, Bode. You could tell who was who by looking at their shoes. The scuffed brown lace-ups belonged to the seriously horn-rimmed Ken Bode, political correspondent and former academic. The oxblood lace-ups were commentator John Chancellor's, as was the rumpled tweed jacket. The sleek black slip-ons were connected, of course, to the feet of anchorman Tom Brokaw. Brokaw's performance didn't disappoint his fans.

NEW YORK - University of Arizona forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was considered to be among the top defensive players in the NBA draft.  That attribute earned him a place in the first round and his first NBA trade. The 6-foot-7, 220-pounder became the second Chester High player ever selected in the first round when the Portland Trail Blazers took him with the 23d overall pick Thursday night at the Barclays Center.  The other Chester High first-round pick was Jameer Nelson, who was drafted in 2004 by Denver and then traded to Orlando.  Wearing red checkered pants, a black suit jacket, and a bow tie, Jefferson, who led Arizona with 43 dunks, was ecstatic at landing in the first round.

In a world where ties are increasingly optional - much to the chagrin of menswear purists - snazzy neckwear is a sartorial sign that dandyism still exists.   The trendlet Bow ties in polka dots, zigzags, stripes, and African prints are taking the modern man's suited-up look from OK to worthy of a second glance. Just ask Matthew McConaughey.   Where's it come from? With the advent of suiting in the mid-17th century came cravats - a neck band that tucked into men's formal shirts like handkerchiefs.

Catalog companies of America, I hear you. I'll bet you're right, too. Scotch probably does seem snazzier in cut-crystal glasses bearing my engraved initials. Thanks for the heads-up! And if I order express delivery, those cuff links made from shotgun shells should be here by Christmas - what you folks call "The Holidays. " They'll look great with that pheasant-feather bow tie that you, Orvis, so thoughtfully have urged on me. Is $149 too much for a bow tie? Not when the feathers are "naturally harvested!"

SECAUCUS, N.J. - The Cleveland Cavaliers got a huge jump on their post-LeBron James rebuilding process Tuesday night, winning the lottery and the No. 1 selection in next month's NBA draft. Turning a pick they acquired from the Los Angeles Clippers into the No. 1 selection, the Cavs will pick first for the first time since 2003, when they drafted James out of high school. He left for Miami last summer, and the Cavs tumbled to the second-worst record in the league, but they will have two top-four picks next month as they try to back owner Dan Gilbert's boast that they would win a title before James.

Some things we learned watching Tuesday's All-Star Game: President Obama told Joe Buck and Tim McCarver he was nervous about delivering the first pitch because he'd never played any organized baseball growing up. Say what? You mean to tell me the leader of the free world has never laid down a bunt, tagged up or gone door-to-door with raffle tickets? Check the man's birth certificate! Maybe all those detractors are correct and he really was born in Oman. A stint in Little League ought to be mandatory for all Americans, especially those seeking our nation's highest office.

Brett Myers turned to Cole Hamels and asked, "Hey, can you zip me up?" Hamels told Myers he looked ready for a "redneck wedding. " The scene inside the Phillies' clubhouse yesterday afternoon was unusual, but provided a few good laughs and ultimately a cool photograph. Greg Casterioto, the Phillies' director of media relations, wanted the returning members of last year's championship team to pose for a picture with the World Series trophy. He wanted it done on the emerald green grass of Bright House Field.

With his white suit, untied bow tie, and sliding dance moves, Jamie Lidell played the part of a blue-eyed soul singer at a late show - made later by a delayed start and an incongruous opening set by the Liz Phair-like Jennifer O'Connor - at World Cafe Live on Wednesday night (and into Thursday morning). He sang the part, too, starting with the hand-clapping, toe-tapping, sax-honking burst of joy that is "Another Day. " The tall, thin Lidell slid his appealing tenor voice around the beat, adding judicious interjections and slurs, reveling in the melody's piano-driven gospel thump.
