Sexy at Any Age!
Wow! That was some cover. Although I consider my wife the most beautiful woman in the world, Jenna Elfman, Heather Locklear
and Jane Seymour are a close second.

What's truly amazing is that whether 40, 50 or 60, none of these women has one wrinkle on her forehead. Make that her entire face. I'd like a tally of all the Botox injections, liposuction and eye jobs that keep these women looking so young and sexy. I applaud their looks. I just feel that the article should have come clean with the warning label: No one can look like this at 60 naturally.

Why can't I seem to find that soap that makes one's eyes go up at the corners and that vegetable that chisels the jaw?

Show me women who have raised their children with no nanny, kept their homes filled with love, shopped for clothing and groceries on a shoestring budget and kept their bodies looking great without a trainer or dietitian. Then I will be impressed.

By lumping the age of 30 in with 40, 50 and 60, you help perpetuate the myth that natural beauty and sexuality are exclusive to twentysomethings. After crossing paths with four 40-year-olds (including my wife) in the first hours of a day last week, I was reminded that throughout my life, the sexiest women I've known have been in the 35-55 range. No twentysomething is a match for an energetic, smart woman whose years have granted her comfort with her inner and outer self.

Do you really believe that all those beauties have aged naturally? In an industry that emphasizes appearance and sex appeal, it is not surprising that the same people are as beautiful and sexy in their later years as they were in their younger years. But give the common folk a break! How about featuring some teachers who made a difference in a student's life on your next cover?

It's not about staying sexy, it's about feeling good. A positive sense of self is the sexiest thing a person can project at any age.

My daughter was born with epidermolysis bullosa dystrophica, which is a more severe form of the disease experienced by Tori Cameron. It is nice to know that EB is finally making the news. Hopefully, with this disease being brought to everyone's attention, a cure will be around the corner. I was told that my daughter would not live to be 2 weeks old. With a lot of prayer and wonderful doctors and nurses, she surprised everyone. This year she will be celebrating her 22nd birthday. I cherish every moment with her and look forward to many more fantastic years to come.

Ironically, Joel Siegel was one of the original founders 10 years ago of what became a network of free cancer support communities named for his friend Gilda Radner. He then served selflessly as the first board chairman of Gilda's Club Worldwide during the most demanding months of his treatment. As for his son Dylan, we have a spot reserved for him in our children's playroom, where he's welcome anytime.

How refreshing it is to see a guy who has risen above his past yet has not forgotten where he came from, loves his parents and now gives back to his community.

At 17, Mark Wahlberg assaulted a Vietnamese man and called him "a slant-eyed gook." Now he wants to do good. How about steps toward those offended? Your article drastically altered my perception of him, and not in a positive light.

It is because of Gunther Gebel-Williams that I love the circus. I will never forget when I took my niece to the circus, yelled out, and he acknowledged us. Who else would treat those enormous animals like his favorite puppy?
Linda Haberaecker, Detroit
If Gunther Gebel-Williams had no need for whips, then why did he use them? Anyone who has watched this man behind the scenes, or even in front of the camera, knows Gebel-Williams used bull hooks and whips on his animals. Next time you glorify someone, may I suggest you not rely on the self-serving press release from a circus for your documentation?
