Publishing swimsuit photo viewed as good work

Thanks to a concerned female letter writer (March 2) who scolded The Maui News for printing an “inappropriate” picture of Kate Upton, the model on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue (Feb. 12).

I immediately investigated and a quick search of the paper’s website found the picture of the young lady in a very nice outfit consisting of a white bikini bottom and a half-open white ski jacket.

There was nothing inappropriate about it, but it was a bit provocative. Not that I mind, mind you. Keep up the good work.
