FEATURES
Giant Steps
BY CHRIS SMITH

Success can come in strange packages. Consider: The Giants' quarterback recently shed a drinking problem. Just a few months ago, the head coach was on the verge of being fired. And though the most recognizable player, cornerback Jason Sehorn, has more than a touch of Broadway in him -- he proposed to Law & Order star Angie Harmon during an appearance on The Tonight Show -- he blew out his right knee two years ago and broke a leg last season. The making of an unlikely championship.

Pistol Whipped
BY JESSICA LUSTIG

After having her apartment burglarized -- twice -- the author took matters into her own hands in a manner many of her friends thought was crazy: by buying a .45 and learning to shoot. But a funny thing happened on the way to the N.R.A. The story of a love affair with a gun that brought, of all things, inner peace.

L.A. Story
BY ROB TANNENBAUM

When Clive Davis was eased out of Arista Records last summer, he left behind a staff -- not to speak of an industry -- that wasn't exactly devoted to making the new guy feel welcome. But don't worry about L.A. Reid, the sleek, personable powerhouse behind the hot R&B label LaFace Records. He's no slouch at handling artists. And he's so good at picking hits that even the man who built the company is collaborating with him.
