sexiest bartenders and then became a Playmate. Now Miss June is your 2006

60 2006: A MYSPACE ODYSSEY
Parents fear it, at least one college has considered banning
it, and Rupert Murdoch likes it so much he paid $580 million for it. More
than 64 million members hook up, make friends and gawk at sexy profiles
on MySpace.com, but others call this
virtual playground a time-wasting cyberdumpster. Our man hunts for identity
and a few meaningful "adds" deep inside this controversial community.

It was only a matter of time before the cosmetic-surgery industry
turned its talent to the female sexual organ. The list of procedures available
to women today includes lifts, snips, G-spot collagen injections and even
hymenoplasty, a surgery that trans-forms the most active women into veritable
virgins. Our intrepid female reporter takes a closer look at the quest
to create the perfect pussy. By Heather Caldwell
100 THE WIT AND WISDOM OF JOHN KRUK
Whether he's debating strategy on ESPN's Baseball Tonight or

loves Krukker-rants and all. The former Phillie talks without a filter,
so his deadpan stories about personal hurdles and the state of the game
are always hits. By Pat Jordan
72 PROACTIVE KELLER
A professional hit man, Keller breaks protocol by offering his
services to a hapless guy sitting next to him on a plane who would like
to ice his business partner. In the business of killing, however, sometimes
the hunter gets captured by the game.

Having covered inaugurations, executions, wars and natural disasters for

call and the infamous time he blurted out "blow job" on live
TV. By David Sheff
