Hats off to the two guys named Tony C.!
Director of Sports Information
The Big Sellout (Aug. 24) refers to CBS as "mediocre show biz." And what do you call eight pages of kite-flying pictures (The Kite maker, Aug. 3) in a national sports magazine?
New Bern, N.C.
A well-deserved round of applause for your positive and courageous stand on the CBS-Yankee wheeling and dealing.
GEORGE C. TENNEY
The August 10 issue of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED was perhaps your finest effort. The combination of versatility and topnotch coverage provided by the articles on golf, baseball, swimming, bullfighting, football and the Aga Khan must have thrilled millions of sports enthusiasts.
In addition, you avoided your most frequent pitfall, that of taking an idea and sparing nothing in its defense, regardless of fact. I salute you.
