BENJI RAMIREZThe Death of an Athlete (Feb. 20) is another sad story about a young man who thought anabolic steroids were going to lead him to the promised land. When are teenage athletes going to learn? It's a shame that it took the death of Benji Ramirez to show them that steroids aren't the answer.MICHAEL A. GRANIERIMilltown, N.J.

PHOTOGRAPHER'S NOTE

FOR KATHY'S FANS
I know that Kathy Ireland finally made the swimsuit cover this year, but why, oh, why was there only one additional picture of her inside this 284-page 25th anniversary edition? You owe Ireland fans nationwide at least one more picture.
