Why are you even reading thisletter?Seriously, why am I even
this letter?There’re people in their under-wear starting on page 35!It’s been a tradition at TheWeekender to highlight some of the sexiest people in NEPA everyyear, but never have we high-lighted so much of them. Theyshow no more skin than a bath-ing suit would, sure, but it takes alot of guts to pose in your skiv-vies no matter how good youlook. My hat goes off to them, but not much else – I like hidingmy steadily increasing beer gutas best I can.But like Playboy, you should read us for the articles, too.We’ve got a nice mix of storiesthis week that cover everythingfrom movies to television tocomic books to theater to musicto art, a variety that we strive tooffer every week. After all, wecan’t offer you scantily clad models all the time.At least until our swimsuitissue.
