“COVER: This month’s cover is by Rick Meyerowitz and is entitled ‘The Old Switcheroo Lives, But Can We Make a T-Shirt Out of It?’ One might make the observation that if that bunny rabbit is really crammed into the cover as it appears, why then is the logo dropping down instead of being forced up as physics would dictate? Our Design Director Michael Gross explains: ‘Yeah, well, maybe so, but bunny rabbits don’t have lumps on the tops of their heads. If they had lumps on the tops, we could force the logo up; but they don’t, so it’s got to go down.”
