Hook was great! It left me with a lot more happy thoughts than I came to the theater with, which is what we need more of in this crazy world.
LISA BRYANT, Norcross, Ga.
This travesty of a British legend has in no way "hooked" me or others I know. It in no way merits the attention that you and others who are misbegotten have given it.
CLAUDIA DAVIDSON, Bakersfield, Calif.
Kimberly Bergalis gave every inch of herself for mandatory testing of health care workers. The Bergalis bill would have saved someone's life. Thanks, Congress, for making her death meaningless.
ELDIE L. THOMAS, San Diego
I just read your article on Kimberly Bergalis, and I am deeply saddened and outraged. As a member of the health professional team, I feel we should be tested for the HIV virus. It is about time that doctors come down off their pedestals.
MARK FRANCIS CANCALOSI, Boca Raton, Fla.
WILLIAM KENNEDY SMITH
William Kennedy Smith claimed his accuser appeared "confused" and "kooky" before they had sex. If he thought she was mentally unstable, why did he sleep with her? That is not the behavior of a compassionate person. While this might not prove he is a rapist, it is an indication of his insensitivity and capacity for treating other humans like dirt.
KAREN ALBERT, Cambridge, Mass.
Thank you, William Kennedy Smith! You have inspired thousands of rape victims to keep quiet. You give new meaning to the phrase justice is blind.
RONA ROSIAN BOLEY, South Hill, Va.
I frequently vacation in south Florida, wear feminine undergarments and have been known to drink my champagne from a bottle. Apparently I deserve to be raped. Next time, no matter how hot the tropics or celebratory the atmosphere, I will remember to button my boiled wool jacket tight and stick to mineral water. The people have spoken.
VALERIE CARSON, Redondo Beach, Calif.
The alleged victim's testimony had too many contradictions to be believable. Nearly everything I've heard on the news indicates many other south Florida women agree.
SUSAN PFEFFER, Islamorada, Fla.
Jim Jerome's portrait of Cher's "inside" is as stimulating as Herb Ritts's portrait of Cher's backside. The generosity and sincere interest expressed by this humanitarian is as alluring as she is in fishnets and leather straps. What a lady!
THOMAS J. RUDNE, Milford, Conn.
Thanks for the space you gave us for our charity, but the organization we were raising money for is not Literary Volunteers of America, but Literacy Volunteers of New York City, which tries to teach one million functional illiterates how to read.
LIZ SMITH, New York City
We regret the error.—ED.
