David Mays said circulation for its upcoming sports spinoff,
The Source Sports, will be "about 300,000-plus." Mays:
"These issues will all be different sports, not just a
preview of one kind of sport" (AD AGE, 2/23 issue).
CLOTHED IN CONTROVERSY? In Las Vegas, Dean Juipe
commented on SI's swimsuit issue: "How does [SI] continue to
get away with it? How can the world's largest and best-read
weekly sports magazine continue to treat women as mindless
pawns?" Juipe added that women "could have -- and still
could -- put an end to this yearly charade, if only they
chose to exert their power" (LAS VEGAS SUN, 2/20). In L.A.,
Bill Plaschke writes that SI "has changed the annual
edition's focus. Good luck figuring out what that focus
is." Plaschke also writes that the section with athletes
and their wives "could have been called ... 'Setting The
Women's Movement Back 25 Years'" (L.A. TIMES, 2/24).
