Bravo on your Robin Williams article (PEOPLE, Feb. 22). You gave us in-depth emotion without trying to make Robin look bad. All he wants to do is “just be Daddy.” Zachary should really feel lucky to have such caring parents.

Robin Williams has proved himself as an entertainer and a human being. He has made me laugh harder than I have ever laughed before and inspired me to finally kick myself in the butt and clean up my act.

I want to thank you for the fabulous article on Robin Williams. He’s been my favorite comic for years. Robin deserves his success and all the happiness in the world. I give him credit for kicking the booze and drugs. Besides being ultratalented, sexy, funny and very interesting, he is also a sensitive and sweet man. I can see why his wife is jealous of his girlfriend—so am I.

Your cover story on Robin Williams and his lover, Marsha Garces, his son’s former nanny, brings up a concern for ail of us working as nannies. As directors of a nanny placement agency, we want to put on the record that fathers getting involved with their children’s nannies are the exception—not the rule. Headlines about this type of relationship can create a false panic among parents and discredit professional nannies.

Let’s hear it for Frances Moody for really clocking her estranged husband. Her husband’s caustic response to a humorous and whimsical television advertisement has “impugned [his] reputation” more than her suggestion that the watch is more reliable than he is. His getting ticked off at her Seiko ad only substantiates the fact.
Jill S. Corliss
Frances, from the sound of your husband, stick with your Seiko. He evidently has no sense of humor and lacks your great personality.
As far as I’m concerned, Frances Moody didn’t lose much of a job or a husband. In case her church diocese doesn’t know it, single women have a multitude of capabilities. Her husband sounds like one of the many unenlightened ignoramuses who try to keep all the marbles once the marriage breaks up. I hope Frances makes a bucket of money from his insensitivity and obvious lack of humor.
After reading “The Riddle of the Boy in Blue,” I was unable to enjoy the remaining articles in the issue. My thoughts kept floating back to the proud little boy who loved and worshiped his father. If Eli Stutzman wants to discard his past, then he shouldn’t have discarded his son’s body so eagerly. His plan to “get on with his life” is a luxury 9-year-old Danny will never have.

Thank you for the inspiring article on the man behind L.A. Law’s Benny Stulwicz. Larry Drake has provided us Law fans with some of the show’s most moving story lines. I, for one, won’t feel satisfied, however, until he’s added to the show’s opening credits and his name is announced this summer for an Emmy nomination. Keep up the excellent work, Larry.

My fellow coaches and I spend countless hours working with young bowlers each week, teaching them not only bowling fundamentals but also sportsmanship, courtesy and fair play. We also stress the importance of their education. Then along comes your little three-page article about PBA’s bad boy and sets our youth program back 10 years. Thanks a lot. I would rather have read about the pros who give their off-season time to charities, hosting bowling clinics for youths and handicapped persons. Our youth of today need more heroes to idolize—not rebellious brats who say, “If somebody doesn’t like it, piss on ’em.” PEOPLE, give us a break.
Malcolm-Jamal Warner’s comments about Philip Michael Thomas’ Miami Vice role clearly establish a new “pot calling the kettle black” record. A critical look at his own role in the Disney-esque Cosby Show could show Warner that the majority of blacks don’t live like that either.

I read your recent article on the movie Sunset and Bruce Willis (PEOPLE, Feb. 8) with some bemusement. In the scenes with me there was no ad-libbing, and Bruce showed only a totally professional attitude. In fact, Bruce Willis made the whole experience a lot of fun for me, and we became good friends.
