‘I adore Garth Brooks! He is down-to-earth and humble’

Kudos to Garth Brooks for making such a loving choice to be a stay-at-home dad. Unfortunately, many more fathers and mothers would love to be able to do the same but cannot because of the pressure today on working parents.

Garth Brooks definitely has his priorities straight! He will never regret his decision to raise his daughters and be there for them during those formative years. Now he can continue with his music career, which is still going strong, as indicated by his fans and sold-out venues.

I would believe this story if he’d walked away years ago, before he made his millions.

Candice Bergen is talented, beautiful, funny and engaging. How refreshing to read about a celebrity who is willing to own her looks without pretense. Guess that makes her like many of us. I’m looking forward to reading her new book.

Who says Candice Bergen is fat? She may not be a teenager anymore, but she looks healthy and happy and is still busy.

Looks will fade, and his family’s five minutes of celebrity will end, but what’s more important is for Rob to realize his true worth and not let his family or the media make him feel bad about who he is or what he looks like.

It’s really refreshing to hear that his dad, Clint, forced him to buy his own car. People who just hand everything to their kids are really doing them a disservice.

Muppet-inspired style and must-reads by Bryan Grazer and Mary Norris would have been enough. But then to see Blake Shelton, Michael Weatherly and Jared Padalecki? Thank you, People. I need a moment.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Guilty
It took a Massachusetts jury just 12 hours to find Dzhokhar Tsarnaev guilty of 30 felony counts for his role in the bombing at the Boston Marathon finish line on April 15, 2013. In part, his April 8 conviction was a foregone conclusion. During opening arguments, Tsarnaev’s lawyer admitted her client’s role in the attack. “It was him,” attorney Judy Clarke told jurors. But Clarke maintained that Tsarnaev, 21, was not the mastermind of the attacks that killed three people and injured 260 others. She described Tsarnaev as a young man who committed the heinous acts at the direction of his older brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev. In the end, the jury was unswayed. At press time, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev faces the death penalty.
