“I am so excited to see Sandra Bullock and her adorable little boy Louis conquering all” Deborah Leonard, via e-mail

Whether you are rich or poor, motherhood is always a challenge. Fortunately, being a good mother seems to be among Sandra Bullock‘s many talents. How wonderful that this fine actress seems truly happy again.

Thanks so much for the tribute to the late Adam Yauch. I grew up listening to the Beastie Boys and I have always loved his lyrics. Not only was Yauch a great musician, but as a Buddhist, he played a significant role in spreading awareness about the conflicts in Tibet. He will be greatly missed.

It was great to read your article about Adam Yauch, aka MCA of the Beastie Boys, in the wake of his untimely passing. However, I was shocked that you spent only two paragraphs recounting his incredible career in music as well as his many humanitarian efforts. People, you blew this one.

I really enjoyed the piece on my absolute favorite, Tom Selleck. This rugged individual might be the John Wayne of our generation. He is obviously a devoted family man, and Tom is also a far better actor than he is given credit for. His mustache and dimpled smile make me weak in the knees, even today. His wife, Jillie Mack, is one lucky gal!

Your story about Albuquerque restaurant owner Tim Harris—born with Down syndrome—was genuinely moving. My husband and I have a 4-year-old son with Down syndrome. He does not know a stranger because everyone he meets is a friend. There is a misconception that Down kids are a burden, when in fact they are just the opposite. Tim Harris and our son can teach all of us a lot about unconditional love.

I really appreciated the article on Tim Harris and his restaurant, which we visited recently. The place is wonderful, and the highlight was getting a big hug from owner Tim.

While it was certainly interesting to see what the various Celebrity Chefs had in their refrigerators, I really had to laugh when I saw that Martha Stewart’s “junk” drawer was just as organized as everything else in her kitchen.

I felt sad for Jennifer Lopez after reading about her 25-year-old boyfriend. With all her beauty, wealth and fame, Ms. Lopez still isn’t comfortable without a man in her life.

Our May 21 story on the Warrior Games, which give injured soldiers a chance to compete in athletic events, moved many readers. “They have a truly remarkable outlook on life,” wrote Suzanne Goldensohn of Wayne, N.J. “They are an inspiration to all of us.” Beth Bourgeois of the U.S. Paralympics says the organization has received letters from PEOPLE readers “thrilled to see stories about injured veterans.” Some Warrior Games contestants will compete at the largest-ever Paralympic Games, featuring 4,200 athletes participating in 20 sports, in London from Aug. 29 to Sept. 9.
