Re: Sports Illustrated-Updates? Ken Siegert 27 Mar 2007 13:06 UTC

I have been in contact with SI numerous times, and told that the
issue will be sent.  A few days afterwards I receive a postcard, and
each one says something different (and usually opposite of what was
discussed on the phone).  The issue is no longer available, it's
being shipped to you, etc.

So, to answer your question, no swimsuit issue yet.  I'm glad that
it's not just me!
