Welcome to the global village. Coun­tries helping countries. We are the world. This month we bring you an issue with a remarkably international flavor. Of course, we still believe in American excep-tionalism: Amerfca Olivo is so exceptional, we've put her on the cover, photographed there and inside by Terry Richardson. A shooter who has redefined sexy for the 21st century, Richardson has a much-copied style that manages to recall the 1980s while looking utterly modern. (If nothing else, it provided our art director with an excuse to dig up some totally rad fonts.) Also featured this month is Becoming Attraction Iga Wyrwal, a pinup from Poland, and Playmate of the Year Ida Ljungqvist (shot by Stephen Wayda), the first Centerfold in playboy his­tory to be born in Africa. No, Ljungqvist is not an African name—Ida, who has lived in more than a dozen countries, is the product of a Swedish father and a Tanzanian mother. It's not only the naked babes who are span­ning the globe: In Forum we hear from Dubravka Ugresic, a Croatian novelist liv­ing in Amsterdam, who has a message of cautious hope about the global economy. And we so liked Swiss-born Cyril Van Der

I Knew Him When

Kudos to David Kaczynski for his brave reflections on growing up with the troubled soul who would become the Unabomber (My Brother Ted, March). In retrospect it seems Ted's motivation for his spree was to destroy his parents for turning him into a brilliant social invalid. In that sense, his 35,000-word manifesto, which he insisted be published to end the killings, is a rationalization for not blow­ing up Mom and Dad. There is no doubt David's heroic decision to put humanity over fraternity saved lives.

] enjoyed Playboy's Music Awards 2009 (March), but what's up with the shots at Cleveland? First you ask, "Is Cleveland afraid of real rock?" because the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame hasn't nominated Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard or Motley Crue. Then you blast the museum for not inducting Rush. The reason the hall is located in Cleveland, and the reason the annual induction ceremony is returning this year after a decade in New York, is our long-standing tradition of supporting all rock music, especially hard rock. Ask Ian "Cleveland Rocks" Hunter what he thinks of the city, or ask Metallica, which has sold out every show it has ever played here. Your criti­cism is the equivalent of blaming Canton, Ohio for excluding players from the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

DAVID AND TED

My husband has been a subscriber for more than 30 years. While he enjoys the photos, I often find myself reading a good portion of the magazine. I thought My Brother Ted was poignant and sen­sitively written. Despite his brother's horrible deeds, David Kaczynski is able to portray Ted's humanity. The deep friendship Kaczynski developed with one of his brother's victims is particularly moving. In contrast to this profound arti­cle is the profile of former Danity Kane star Aubrey O'Day (Backstage With Aubrey O'Day), who says her goal in life is to give a guy "the best sex he has ever had, the sex he'll never be able to get out of his head." So the March issue went from the highest morality and ideals to the lowest. You offer something for everyone!

SILENT TREATMENT

If your reporter George Prochnik had been truly interested in understand­ing boom-car culture (Boom Car Boom, March), he would have contacted victims of noise pollution—people who suffer from chronic fatigue, mental aggrava­tion, hearing loss and sleeplessness, as well as those who have had to abandon their homes because of boom cars shak­ing them. Instead, he presents boom-car owners as misunderstood youths and antinoise activists as cranks, dismissing our organization, for example, as little more than an online discussion group that trades a lot of "lathery bile"—which is not only inaccurate but a cheap shot. In fact, we have 52 chapters in 27 states that work with police and the media to com­bat excessive noise. The idea that some people are born to love booming bass while others prefer peace and quiet, as if there were a moral equivalence between the two, is laughable. People who are silent do no harm to others. Those who crank out incredible levels of noise cause a great deal of damage.

In 2008 Poland's Iga (or Eva) Wyrwal emerged from obscurity to conquer U.K. newsstands, mak­ing Nuts magazine's Best New Boobs and Biggest New Boobs lists and being named Sexiest Topless Babe of the Year. "Basi­cally, British men are all about boobs," she says. More than just a pretty pair, Iga is venturing into acting, in the horror film Dread. "I had to describe my worst night­mare," she recalls, "which is that someone has kidnapped me, cut off my hands and feet and replaced them with metal parts. My acting is probably a bit crap, though."

Consider yourself a connoisseur of the mobster-movie genre? Take note: The best Mafia flick to come out in years stars no one you know (Salvatore Abruzzese, Simone Sacchettino) and has barely made it onto the big screen in the States. Gomorrah is an Italian film about the Neapolitan Mafia, called the System (or the Camorra), considered the most violent crime syndicate in the world right now. The movie is based on the sensational nonfiction book of the same name, written by an Italian journalist with a giant sacco, named Roberto Saviano. The film won the Grand Prix at Cannes last year. A DVD version with English subtitles is available in the U.K., and some cable services offer the film on demand. If you're the type to spout GoodFellas lines in bars, find a way to catch this one.

In the postapocalyptic sci-fi epic Terminator Salvation, resistance fighter John Connor (Christian Bale) leads the charge in humanity's battle against an onslaught of unstoppable Terminators in the year 2018. Director McG and company attempt to combine cutting-edge special effects with a gripping story line to match the three previous Terminator movies, as well as TV's Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. This fourth film also stars Helena Bonham Carter, Bryce Dal­las Howard, Moon Bloodgood, Anton Yelchin and Linda Hamilton, who reprises her role as Sarah Connor via voice-over. "Christian and I were never interested in making just an action movie," says McG. "We wanted to honor the mythology of Terminator and make a film with beautiful story arcs and a theme that has haunted people ever since Robert Oppenheimer popped the genie out of the

Finally, a movie-based video game that doesn't suck. Terminator Salvation (360, PC, PS3) doesn't reinvent the shooter but does do a highly competent job of putting you in the combat boots of John Connor on a mission gone wrong that takes place before the events of the film. We'd rather shoot robots than people any day.

Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
[no value]

Scott Jones
The first Riddick game, 2004's Escape From Butcher Bay, was a major standout on the origi­nal Xbox. Too bad no one played it. Assault on Dark Athena (360, PC, PS3) lets you right that wrong by including an updated version of the original game along with its new full-length in­stallment. This cerebral shooter stars a virtual Vin Diesel (a redundant concept, we know) and emphasizes exploration and stealth over wanton killing. The first game's narrative has an elegant simplicity whereby your escape from an interga-lactic prison is complicated by the relationships you develop with other inmates. In Athena it's more you against the world or, in this case, a band of space pirates. With two lengthy single-player campaigns and an all-new multiplayer mode, this is one of the best bargains in gaming and 2009's first must-have. VVVV -Scott Jones

As the frontman of Pulp, Jarvis Cocker be­came the poet laureate of Britpop with his tragicomic chronicles of English rust-belt life packed into rousing anthems like "Com­mon People" and "Disco 2000." Now he's back with the new Steve Albini-produced solo album Further Complications. PLAYBOY: You lived through grim times during the Thatcher years as the coal mines closed in the region where you grew up. What's different during this downturn? COCKER: Yeah, I was living in Yorkshire when the pit closures were happening. I regret now that I didn't get involved in the protests. At the time, I thought political en­gagement gave legitimacy to the powers that be, that it was better to find an alterna­tive lifestyle than to fight the one that exists. In fighting it, you kind of acknowledge its right to exist. I was apolitical in those days; nowadays I think you do have to engage.

We love cool tattoos on gor­geous women. Know who this beauty above is? Hmm. We called on Inked magazine editor Jason Buhrmester to give us his top 10 for Playboy.com's A-List: Top Tattoo Shops. Each pick is a temple of artistry and skill— Japanese-style masters, biker-chic artistes and more. And the abdomen above? It belongs to superscorching Italian actress Asia Argento.

John Varvatos's clothes make men look good in a way that doesn't shout "Check out how good I look!" The same low-key approach succeeds for his new cologne, Arti­san ($75, johnvarvatos .com). With a combina­tion of citrus, ginger and wood notes, it whispers with quiet authority in­stead of making a stink.

Mechanical wristwatches are one of the most impressive results of mankind's opposable thumb. Too bad most cost four to six figures. Imagine our surprise, then, when Lum-Tec launched late last year, promising handmade watches with automatic movements in the $400-to-$800 range. Every watch is one of a limited, numbered series, like the M3 shown here ($515, lum-tec.com), of which only 155 were made.

Most espresso ma­chines are hard to fit in your briefcase. But that doesn't mean you need to hit a megachain. The Handpresso Wild ($100, handpresso.com) is part bicycle pump, part barista. Use the built-in pump to generate 14 to 16 bars of pressure, pack the filter with finely ground high-quality cof­fee, pour boiling water into the plastic canister, then flip it over. At the touch of a button it will crank out thick, rich, cremo-topped go juice. Zoom.

Think about the way )anis Joplin could wrench all the love juice out of the word summer­time. (If you're too young to know this song, YouTube it immediately.) She says it all in those three brilliant syllables. Summer is about adventure. It's about late nights, partying, sex and sun, about the impulse in all men that makes us drive until we hit water. We can't sing like Janis. but we can put out a great magazine celebrating our favorite sea­son. What do we love most about summer? It starts here: the sight of a beautiful woman with tanned skin exposed. If you were wondering, this is Danish swimsuit model Ann Lodberg, shot on the beach in Australia. See more of her at annlodberg.com.

How's this for an afternoon? You're lying in the sun on a boat. You jump in some cool water, get out. crack a beer, jump back in, get out, have sex, beer number two, jump back in, beer number three, then cruise into the sunset in search of a delicious dinner. Not necessarily in that order. As for the hardware, you may not be able to afford the gazillion-dollar 148 Saudade, Wally's biggest megayacht yet (at 148 feet), built for global blue-water cruising and photographed here in Porto Cervo on the north end of Sardinia. But given the economy, there may be no better time to hunt for your dream boat. There are eye-popping deals on every kind imaginable at boattrader.com.

Lagunitas Lucky 13-Delicious and more than eight percent alcohol by volume New Belgium Skinny Dip-This one's for her; it has 114 calories a bottle, not counting the requisite lemon twist. Thomas Hooker Watermelon Ale-An effervescent sipper from Connecticut. Looking for a good time? This Hooker is worth every penny. Beach Bum Blonde Ale-Imagine the hottest blonde you've ever seen on a beach. Now imagine what her lips taste like when you kiss her: citrusy, fruit forward. You know you're going back for more.

This summer kiteboard-ing supplants Jet Skiing as the beach-resort sport du jour. Slip your feet into a board, strap yourself to a big kite and let mother nature hurl you like a skipping stone. Work up enough speed and you feel like Jesus walking on water. The sport was pio­neered off Maui in the 1990s; now you can learn at any number of resorts in Mexico and the Carib­bean. Our favorite kite-boarder: Kristin Boese, a German vixen who turns 32 this month and has won eight kiteboarding world championships. Here she is in action and nude in the pages ofi German playboy. "(< wouldn't mind doing an­other shoot tomorrow," she says, "maybe with U.S. playboy?" You never know. .

There's no time like the present to live out your road-movie fantasy. Hit man Dick Hooker (played by you) and his porn-star gal pal. Trixie Vixen (your girlfriend), cross the border to kill a Mexican drug dealer (Burt Reynolds) in this high-octane Ridley Scott-directed thriller. Here's a sweet little ride that'll get you there: BMW's newly styled Z4 roadster, now with a two-piece aluminum folding hardtop (and a manageable tag starting around S4OK). Opt for the twin-turbo three-liter 300-horsepower sDrive35i and the Sport Package, with a slick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch paddle-shift sport automatic. Zero to 60 goes by in a swift five seconds. Huge ventilated disc brakes? Fifty-fifty weight distribution? Every possible safety feature? Check, check and check.

A few lessons I've learned along the way: 1. Location, location, location. The best spot is a secluded and beautiful beach, ideally at sunrise or sundown (see below). 2. The more clothes you keep on, the faster your recovery time should anyone wander by. 3. Unless you're inclined to try the From Here to Eternity pose, standing positions keep friction areas free of sand and the rest of you free of bugs. 4. Remember the Boy Scouts? The most valuable lesson you learned was how to spot poison ivy-three almond-shape leaves, a hairy vine and grayish-white berries. -Judy Button

Every summer. Hollywood execs crunch their butt cheeks together and gamble hundreds of millions on would-be sum­mer blockbusters. Will the film be another Star Wars (number two all-time moneymaker in inflation-adusted dollars), an E.I (four) or a Jaws (seven)? Or will it be another Adventures of Pluto Nash, the Eddie Murphy "vehicle" that came out in sum­mer 2002 and ranks as the biggest financial flop of all time? What drama! We're putting our money this summer on Land of the Lost (Will Ferrell, Danny McBride), Public Enemies (Johnny Depp, Christian Bale) and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Shia LaBeouf and the furiously foxy Megan Fox, pictured).

1. Pick an appropriate spot away from any buildings or over­hanging trees. It should not be on grass. Dig a foot-deep hole. The size can vary depending on the size of the fire you want. If practical, surround your hole with rocks. Think of the five-foot radius around the rocks as a buffer zone where you shouldn't leave anything flammable.

Show up at your local curl with a surfboard like the one pictured below and you'd better know how to surf. Called Voodoo Child, the board was designed by California artist Drew Brophy (drewbrophy.com). Looking to buy a present for a guy who has it all? Get him a submarine. A real one. Navy Surplus is offering a 274-foot Whiskey-class sub decommissioned in 1991. Range: 12.000 miles. The engines have a total of 14,200 horsepower. All that's missing is the liquor and the DJ ($497K, e-mail submarine@projectboats.com). Time to stock up for July 4. America's top fireworks outfit, TNT Fireworks, has some new stuff this season. Our favorite is the Legal Limit Finale, nine little missiles that emit "an enormous amount of beautiful red and blue stars along with a silver bouquet and crackling flowers." according to the product lit. See tntfireworks.com to find a retailer. Don't forget the staples. For flip-flops, we like the skull pattern from Brazilian outfit Havaianas (havaianas.com). As for shades, the Wayfarer is back in, as if it ever went out (rayban.com). Our favorite swimwear is from Sundeck-old-school California cool (sundeck.com).

PMOY 2008 Jaydc Nicole founded Lengths for Love and signed up her Playmate friends—including Miss February 2007 Heather Rene Smith and Miss June 2007 Brittany Binger—to donate their hair for cancer-patient wigs. PMOY 2007 Sara Jean Underwood, Crystal Harris, Hef and Cyber Girl Cristal Camden attended the launch. Jayde says, "If something as simple as cutting your hair can help someone as much as these wigs do, I don't see why anyone wouldn't want to do it." Go to myspace.com/lengthsforlove to help out.

Scripps-Howard runs an annual celebrity Super Bowl pool. Among those who cast their predictions this year were Maya Angelou, Condoleez-za Rice, Bill O'Reilly and our own Miss August 2004 Pilar Lastra, who forecast a 28-24 Pittsburgh vic­tory. The final score was 27-23, with the Steelers taking home the trophy. Take it away, ESPN.com col­umnist Gregg East-erbrook: "If scantily clad megababes are better than washed-up jocks at predicting football outcomes, perhaps ESPN should reexamine its busi­ness model."

Like a lot of other employers, the Recording Industry Associa­tion of America made huge job cuts earlier this year. Though the group cited the economic downturn as the reason, some may view it as the end of the line for the major-label-backed orga­nization. Call it a boomerang effect from the disastrous public relations engendered by its decisions to sue music fans and try to force Internet service providers to cut off users suspected of copyright infringement. In December the RIAA said it would stop initiating lawsuits against users of P2P file-sharing sites, but it Is still following through on some cases already in progress. Tens

The United States should better manage all immigration ("Start Mak­ing Sense," "American Peon," March) to make sure enough jobs are avail­able for existing legal residents, taking into account the skill and education level of immigrants and the condition of our economy. Currently we allow too many low-skilled legal immigrants into the U.S. and fail to stop illegal immigration, which further lowers wages through oversupply. This cre­ates a situation in which low-skilled legal residents cannot earn enough money to survive, and hence we cre­ate more working poor. We cannot and should not import poverty. We can and should help other countries where we can, but the first order of business is to protect our citizenry both physically and financially. Carol Johnson Columbia, South Carolina

Washington, D.c—In a landmark deci­sion applauded by playboy, the Obama administration reversed the federal government's policy toward medical-marijuana dispensaries. From now on, according to Attorney General Eric Holder, the Department of Justice will not prosecute dispensaries operating legally under state law. This means medical-marijuana providers in Califor­nia and a dozen other states where they are permitted will no longer be caught in the legal limbo where they languished during the Bush administration, which aggressively targeted dispensaries. Though the new policy does not change federal drug law to recognize the medi­cal use of pot, it does represent a major practical change. "Whatever questions were left," said Ethan Nadelmann of the Drug Policy Alliance, "Holder's com­ments clearly represent a change in pol­icy out of Washington. He's sending a clear message to the DEA." University of California law professor Rob MacCoun, who specializes in drug policy, said, "We may be seeing the end of an era." But he cautioned, "No one should assume that just because the Obama administration is tolerant of medical marijuana it will be as tolerant of recreational marijuana." Here's hoping this leads to more com­prehensive out-and-out legalization.

new york—Recent reports about the finan­cial woes of famed photographer Annie Leibovitz (pictured) speculated the source of the trouble was inheritance tax owed on the estate of her longtime partner, Susan Sontag.

Washington, D.c.—If you're looking for a silver lining in the economic crisis, look no further than a few policy shifts being made amid pressure to increase tax revenues and re­duce spending. In the first category is a movement in states with blue laws to re­peal restrictions on the sale of alcohol on Sunday. (Fourteen states have partial—spir­its only—or full bans.) "States are seeing Sunday sales as a positive way to raise rev­enue without raising taxes or cutting valu­able programs," says Ben Jenkins of the Distilled Spirits Council. "That, along with
