Default Better Image

The following are excerpts from a letter to the editor; January 2008 Issue of Powerboat; page 20:

BETTER IMAGE

Thank you for discontinuing the inappropriate Cigarette ads...The ads of late were degrading and not on par with the quality I enjoy in the rest of your magazine...I was getting to the point where I did not want my kids looking at your magazine because of those ads... I believe offshore boating should be more family friendly...you need to keep your magazine based on the boats.

There are no Cigarette ads in the subject issue.

Any thoughts?

Right now it's the Cigarette ads, but what will be next? Any pictures that show girls in bikinis or guys with no shirt on? C'mon and give me a break. Some people just b*tch to b*tch and are not happy unless they have something to b*tch about. If you don't want your kids to see those ads, rip them out before you give them the magazine. It's just that simple.

Freedom of choice.. I love it. It's a shame that some of these idiots can't exercize theirs. You don't want to see good looking babes in a magazine??? Don't buy it.. don't show it.. quit stuffing your fat face with 2000 calories every hour.. go to the gym... loose the wight,, get off of the Jealousy band wagon and let ME exercise my freedom to see, read what ever the hell I want and let me go guh-gah over the Cig boats and babes until I can get a Cig with the babes.
Did they banned the Marlboro adds ?? That’s what all this is all about.. right ???

How does she have time to be checking out Powerboat? Wouldn't this time be better spent keeping the house a little cleaner and making a nice meal for her husband every night?
