I was completely appalled by your May cover of Mirthala Salinas and the not so clever headline “The Mayor’s Mistress”.
I reviewed your 2007 and current 2008 covers and was struck at the fact that in 17 covers, no other Latina graced it, with the exception of Salinas, who uses her mother’s death as an excuse to ooops, sleep with the Mayor of the 2nd largest city in the Nation because she was lonely.
Why not have the former 1st lady of the city of Los Angeles on the cover? Corina Villaraigosa survived not only cancer, but continued emotional abuse and held her head high during this whole scandal.
Congratulations on continuing to stereotype Latinas as fast, easy, emotional and worthy of mention only if our sexualities are on display.
In my opinion, you missed the story altogether.
