"If Tiger Woods reunites with his family, it will make him look good and Elin look bad"
Mary Hungerford, Lanham, Md.
If Tiger Woods devotes himself with the same intensity that he has had for golf, he can become a better man—a man worthy enough to be given a second chance with his wife and with himself.
Is there really a choice? Either Elin loves him or she doesn't. I'm sorry that this happened. All the innocent got hurt. But it is over and done with now. Let's pick up the pieces and go on with life.
It's infuriating to see Elin Woods continue to be depicted as "humiliated"! She is not responsible for her husband's infidelity. When married people take their vows, they do not become responsible for the other person's behavior, especially when it entails multiple affairs.
As a therapist who works in the field, I know that thousands of people in recovery from sex addiction are able to restore their marriages, but it takes tremendous effort and willingness to do so. I hope Tiger is willing to go to any lengths to make this happen for his family.

People who are overweight should be considerate of their fellow passengers and buy two seats if necessary. Grow up and think about the person sitting next to you.

I have one word for troubled flyer Kevin Smith: exercise.
Thanks for the update on Bill Clinton's health. My father also isn't the type to visit a doctor unless something's really wrong. I'm glad the former President was aware enough to know he needed to get help. He's been doing a lot of amazing things these days to help make people's lives better.

After reading about Boston accents in your movie section, I thought about how I cringe when I see a great movie ruined by actors using bad New England accents. So please, all you lovely and talented people, keep doing movies in Boston, just skip the accent.
Your story on precious Christopher Cobun, who was born with his heart outside his chest, brought me to tears. To imagine the incredible heartache this mother endured wondering if her baby would live and the faith she had that he would just goes to show that there truly is nothing greater than the love a mother has for her child.

FINALLY, A HOME
Readers were touched by our March 1 story on Reece's Rainbow, the nonprofit launched by Andrea Faris Roberts in honor of her son Reece who has Down syndrome, to facilitate adoptions of similar children in foreign orphanages. "Thank God for people like Andrea," wrote Stephanie Stone, a mother from Owensboro, Ky., who has a 6-year-old with Down syndrome. But the impact was even more lasting for 10 children, including 5-year-old Nikolai pictured in the story, who found homes with readers. Roberts says the $15,000 in new donations will help fund other adoptions. "Seeing a child find a family is a powerful thing," she says.
In our March 8 issue we misidentified Jodi Picoult's last book. It is Handle with Care. We regret the error.
