Indecent Apes

McAllen Monitor - Nov 19, 1993

The offending cover. It's true, you can see a dangly bit there, as well as some naked ta-tas.

Considering the age of this news story, I was curious how the parties have fared over the years.. Here's what I found :

Minyards no longer exists. After a long decline it finally dissolved in July 2016. Perhaps it should have kept those issues of Discover on the shelf for the few extra dollars in sales. Discover magazine was a subsidiary of TIME, Inc. and now is owned by Kalmbach Publishing. (I'm familiar with Kalmbach due to a subscription over the last thirty years to their flagship publication, Model Railroader. Yes, I play with model trains.)

They seem to be looking for Mr. Nicolino, to collect a surplus brassiere from his failed "Bras Across the Grand Canyon" project.

So should Discover put a black censorship bar on all animals' udders, titties and genitals, or just the proto-humans' ?
