" Kenya top this?" Yes, ya ken—by bringing back Christie Brinkley!
An SI swimsuit issue without Christie Brinkley? Please, say it isn't so!
My feelings that Christie Brinkley was the most beautiful lady ever to grace an SI swimsuit issue have been Alt-ered.
Christie Who? Carol, woo!
Concerning your question, I'd probably faint if you did top this.
You've outdone yourselves with the '82 swimsuit issue. Carol, Kim, Charissa and Kathryn are the most beautiful girls in the world. Really outasight!

My, my, are winter sports so dull that the editors of SI have to throw in some girlie stuff to leave our sports-loving men with their tongues hanging out? I thought there were other magazines for that. What is your reason for this annual porno issue? And don't you dare say it's just a special winter resort edition. We know better. If that were so, we wouldn't have to see Kim's topless number, would we? I don't think my husband really cares about the price of that little rubberband of a bikini, either. So snap out of it and get back to serious sports.

Amid the avalanche of praise for all the visible skin in your latest issue, let me say, "Cheap shot!" Sex, that's what sells, right?
There are plenty of girlie mags, and if I had wanted them for my children, I would not have subscribed to SI. SPORTS ILLUSTRATED implies sport of the athletic type. So illustrate that and not the see-through-bikini type. Try stimulating the youngsters of the country with basketball, hockey, sailing, skiing, etc.

I'm not sure what 16 pages of scantily clad women have to do with the sports reported in your Feb. 8 issue, but I am sure I would not have subscribed to your magazine for our home if I had known you put out such an issue. I will not make the same mistake when the time comes to renew.
