“Nicole Kidman is a class act. She added to her family but kept it private until they were ready to share”
Congrats to Keith Urban, Nicole Kidman and Sunday Rose on the new addition to their family, Faith Margaret. I find the love they share for each other and their children extraordinary. They radiate happiness.
While I was elated to see the news about Keith and Nicole’s new daughter on the cover, I was disappointed that the title wasn’t “Nicole and Keith’s Baby.” Why didn’t he get more credit?
I appreciate your update on this tragedy. I sat and cried for Christina-Taylor Green, the sweet girl who went to see Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. My heart aches for Christina and Gabrielle. What is this world coming to? Let’s keep them in our thoughts and prayers.
It is fitting that Christina-Taylor Green’s last earthly contribution was to lead others out of darkness. The donation of her corneas made it possible to restore the sight of two people with the gifts she so generously provided. The member organizations of the Eye Bank Association of America provide over 50,000 corneas each year to restore sight. We are grateful that so much good can be made out of tragedy. And we thank Christina’s parents for their selfless gift.

GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS
I was puzzled that Colin Firth, who won the award for best actor in a drama for The King’s Speech, was not mentioned in your Golden Globe Awards coverage. Mr. Firth’s performance was so deserving of the award and hopefully an Oscar as well.

The article about Tim McGraw and Faith Hill was thoroughly enjoyable. It is so refreshing to know that people still care about the sanctity of marriage. They are an inspiration to families across America. Well done, Tim and Faith, on your dedication to having a successful marriage.
PARK CITY MOMS
While I commend the Park City 5 moms for their efforts to build schools for kids living in poverty in memory of their late children, I wish they would remember that there are kids in America who also need better schools.
UPDATE | TIGER MOTHER DEBATE
Our story on Amy Chua and her controversial memoir Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, on tough-love “Chinese parenting,” stirred intense reader reaction. “Perhaps she might have explored the ancient concept of occasionally just letting them be children,” wrote Rebecca S. Hertsgaard of Palm Desert, Calif. But now, Chua says, there is calm after the storm. “Things have gotten better now that people are actually reading the book,” she says. While Chua admits to some regrets, “if I had to do it all over, I would do many things the same.” As far as a sequel goes, “one memoir is enough for me,” says Chua.
