The highlight of my week was when our 21-month-old daughter looked at the cover of your swimsuit issue, pointed and said, "Mommy."
What a perfect child—except, perhaps, for her eyesight!
As my girlfriend proofreads this letter over my shoulder, we concur that your annual swimsuit issue is tasteless, sexist, degrading, immoral...(she just left the room)...artistic, invigorating, stylish, refreshing, sensuous.
My wife was ready to cancel our subscription until she saw the ad in your swimsuit issue showing Jim Palmer smiling happily in his swimwear. Perhaps SI should consider him for next year's feature. He is not an "undernourished fashion model," and he is a "pretty good athlete."
My husband and I have an agreement: He gets to play basketball twice a week, and I get to cut out the pictures in the swimsuit issue before he gets home.
No way am I going to provide those pictures for my two sons to see! Maybe they can see the same sort of pictures someplace else, but not in my living room.
As a red-blooded American male, I certainly appreciated the swimsuit issue. However, as an ex-jock with a daughter who is a college basketball player, I appreciated even more the issue in which you devoted several pages to covering women's collegiate basketball (Feb. 2).
