Many people may believe that Joe Carbone took a step down by leaving his "glamorous" job to become a P.E. teacher, but anyone who chooses to make a difference in the physical well-being of our nation's disadvantaged is taking a huge step up. Thank you, Joe, for putting kids first.

As a psychiatrist, neurologist and football fan, I thank you for the timely release of the Swimsuit Issue. Since the Vikings lost to the Saints in the NFC Championship Game, I fear the incidence of depression in Minnesota has surpassed the national average.

Congratulations to SI for including a South Asian woman and an Ivy Leaguer in the Swimsuit Issue, both in the form of Sonia Dara. The beauty of those groups has been underrepresented in past editions.
