Al Parker: 3 Decades of TV Guide Covers

* Many thanks to TI list member Tom Johnsonn who, out of the blue, sent all of today's scans one day last week. I always like to include a link to a contributor's website as a way of saying thanks. Since Tom doesn't have a website, he suggested I include one to his son Ted's site Pilates Any Time. "Ted's doing really well with this site," writes Tom. "Maybe there are some sedentary artists who might be interested in getting fit?"
