The Long Arm of Uncle Sam Seventy years ago, the government forced a Dayton farmer to pay a fine for growing too much wheat. Chip Rowe revisits the case, which mirrors the debate over compelling Americans to buy health insurance. News & Notes The World of Playboy Bruno Mars plays the Mansion; Hef is honored for his work saving the famous Hollywood sign; Man + Machine mixes music and fashion at a preshow Grammys party; toasting gods and goddesses.
