Sleekest Fat Cat

Lou Mellini

Just look at him! And you can't miss him. Presiding over virtually every gathering of the powerful (Bob Isaac's retirement party, for starters), heading every committee of establishment do-gooders (remember SCIP? World Arena?), Lou makes the rest of our shambling power brokers look like hicks. Start with impeccably tailored double-breasted suits (London? Milan? New York?), add the perfect tie, gleaming wing-tips, and perfectly barbered hair and beard, and you've got Lou. Hard to believe that he and gorgeous spouse Madeleine were managing a rock 'n' roll bar 20 years ago; who said there were no second acts in American lives? (JH)
