     Plus-size model in Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue is barely progress
    I want to be excited about plus-size model Ashley Graham appearing in Sports Illustrated's upcoming swimsuit issue. I really do. But a couple of things are holding me back. First, she's in an ad. So unlike the models who get paid to appear on the...
