FEATURES
Separation Anxiety
BY JENNIFER SENIOR
To many New Yorkers, the arrival of August evokes powerful fantasies of escape -- from psychotherapy, that is. But few shrinks will give you up without a long-term struggle. From Freud on down, therapists have had ways of interpreting their patients' exit strategies as evidence of their neuroses -- and therefore worthy of (what else?) more talk. But the author dared to wonder: Is this for the patient's good? Or the shrink's?

League of Their Own
BY MICHAEL DOLAN
Despite their beautiful new ballpark and the devotion of baseball-starved Brooklynites, the Cyclones don't always have it easy. There they are, in the shadow of their parent team, the Mets, making $850 a month each, bunking in dorms, and dining on leftover hot dogs. It's just a subway ride to Shea -- but only one in fifteen will ever make the trip.

The Man Show
BY IAN SPIEGELMAN
Sexy amputees, aging strippers, "Bra Bingo" -- Opie and Anthony's "cringe radio" smacks of vintage Howard Stern (who's called them "my bitches") and has won them a place among the top shock-jocks in New York. This summer, they signed a syndication deal with Infinity Broadcasting, but how will their freakish frat chat play in the heartland?

Operation Sail
BY MARION MANEKER
For a select group of investment bankers, high-powered lawyers, and real-estate moguls, regattas have become an intensely competitive obsession, the extreme sport of gentlemen who can afford technology-rich yachts -- and the America's Cup vets to sail them. Let the games -- and the spending -- begin.
