Congratulations! Once again your annual swimsuit edition ("A" You're Adorable, "B" You're..., Feb. 13) is a work of art! I've been reading SI for eight years now, and this issue just keeps getting better.
I thought it would be impossible to do it without Christie Brinkley, but your '84 effort was the most stunning to date. Six gorgeous paragons of femininity, some alleged swimwear and Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. Tastefully outrageous!
"Here Comes the Sun"? I'm beginning to believe that cover girl Paulina Porizkova moves the earth! I'll be Czech-ing her out for weeks to come.
Your (un)cover girl may have been "in the pink"—but just barely!
Oil City, Pa.
At last, the ultimate suitless bathing strap!

I want to thank you on behalf of the entire Chaminade High basketball team for introducing us to Kathy Ireland. The picture of her in a lacy bikini now hangs proudly in all our lockers, replacing that of Larry Bird.

Please sign rookie phenom Kathy Ireland to a long-term, no-cut, no-trade contract.

How do you expect me, a dermatologist, to recommend sunscreens for my patients when you present such a dazzling array of beauties in skimpy swimsuits? Phew!

This year I was home when my husband's prized issue arrived. I frantically searched each picture for a flaw, a patch of cellulite that had gone unnoticed, a tummy that wasn't concave, anything! In finding nothing, I resigned myself to a lifelong diet-and left my husband to his daydreams.
If I want sports, I can get it in the Pigskin Preview in Playboy. If I want to see women, I can see them in SI.
