            Since the Playboy building in Chicago has been long gone, I thought the mag had gone the same route.

            I remember a very good interview with Ron Daws way back in 1972.

              As a dedicated reader from ages 12-16, I have just two words to say: Connie Kreski.

                I like this physical description of Ms. Kreski on wiki: "Kreski had long taffy-colored hair and blue near-sighted eyes."

                Obvious Playboy material . . .

                  With the increasing decline in morals and the increasing lust for depravity, what was once considered risque, is now too boring to even be considered routine.

                  Porn has become increasingly more violent and obscene.

                  Many of our children are exposed to this daily whereas years ago it would have been something for a young boy to get a peek at Playboy.

                  Hef being an old man who considered himself principled has probably resisted suggestions and the pressure for his empire to go XXX to remain viable.

                  So as his clientele dies off, so goes his magazine.

                  Oh wretched man that I am, who will save me from this body of death?

                    You are simply not a student of history if you think the world is becoming MORE depraved. Plus, porn has always been violent and obscene - no change there either.

                      Yes, but it has not always been as widely available as it is today.

                            The pornographic world has definitely become more violent and depraved in our lifetime.

                            So has the world in general in many ways.

                            Simply.
