“Casey clearly has no conscience, so we will never find out what really happened to little Caylee”

I was shocked to see Casey Anthony on the cover of PEOPLE. In my opinion no one who has been accused of murdering her own child should be accorded that honor. Instead of Casey, I’d much rather read about a brave or inspiring person. Why not put someone on the cover who has done something positive for children or for their community?

I hope that when Casey is finished reading the cover story about herself she continues on to the next article about Pink and her adorable new baby girl. Maybe then she will find herself shedding tears for what she has lost.

Over the years you’ve run many stories about celebrities and their new babies, but the one on Pink, Carey and Willow is by far the best one I’ve ever seen. It’s not because of all the toys the parents may have bought for their child or how glamorous Pink looked. I could actually feel the love of this beautiful family.

I was so glad to hear Pink say what I’ve been thinking since I had my first baby two months ago: “It’s not that bad.” Of course everything is different now, but we wouldn’t change a thing. There should be more optimistic parents like Pink and Carey speaking up. I know the bliss they’re experiencing these days.

If the Duchess of York really wanted to heal and move on with her life, she would not be facing her demons publicly on television with Dr. Phil and Suze Orman. Hasn’t she learned by now that there are consequences to her actions? The only thing Sarah will get from her reality show is a big paycheck.

Having been a Bruce Springsteen fan since 1975, I can say without a doubt that it wasn’t just the Boss who sent me to another place whenever I heard his music. It was the whole package, and Clarence Clemons was a big part of that. Between his searing sax solos and the camaraderie he had with Bruce onstage, they created unforgettable performances. Rest in peace, Big Man.

Glen Campbell’s disclosure of his Alzheimer’s diagnosis sparked an outpouring of reader support and affection. Pam Burton of Indianapolis, who recently saw the singer in concert, writes, “Three generations of my family were thoroughly entertained by Glen’s still terrific voice, humor and guitar artistry. In spite of the challenges he’s facing, he performed with the enthusiasm of a musician half his age.” Sue Shalcosky of Horsham, Pa., whose husband has Alzheimer’s, praises Campbell “for being so open and brave. Glen is making a huge difference in many lives, and those of us who fight the daily battle for our loved ones are extremely grateful to him.”


In the Second Look game in our July 4 issue, Answer No. 9 said there was a parrot behind one of the trumpet players; the parrot was behind a trombone player. In our June 20 issue, we said Honey’s Kettle restaurant was in Los Angeles. The two Honey’s Kettles are in Compton and Culver City, in L. A. County. We regret these errors.
