A million thanks for running a cover story on Jon Bon Jovi. He is still (and always will be) the hottest ticket in town. The fact that he is still in love with his high school sweetheart and stays grounded by fatherhood makes him that much sexier.

I have been a devoted Jon Bon Jovi fan for close to two decades. Although I am a professional woman with two small children, I still rush out to stores as soon as a new Bon Jovi CD is released, and I think nothing of sleeping outside to get concert tickets. Thank you for telling the world what Jon's fans already know—that hard work and staying true to your values will lead to success no matter what you do in life. In Jon's case, good looks and talent didn't hurt either!

Thank you, thank you for the article on Jon Bon Jovi. I had to grab three copies—one for my daughters to drool over, one for the coffee table and one just for me!

Your article on Jon and Dorothea Bon Jovi certainly made me laugh. How refreshing it was to read that they are living such a "normal life." That must be difficult to do with a staff of 10 in a 19,000-sq.-ft. house.

Not only is Jon Bon Jovi an icon who survived the trappings of '80s rock, he is also a decent family man—and unequivocally the sexiest man to grace this planet.
Wanda Wise has three children by a man (men?) not her husband, and she has the nerve to suggest he just "let this go" and continue paying child support to her? What gall. From all accounts it sounds as though Morgan Wise is a fine father and loves those kids despite the fact that they are not biologically his. I'm sure any man in his shoes would be fighting to keep his money out of her hands.

I am appalled by Wanda Wise's marital infidelities and by Morgan Wise's refusal of responsibility. Children are the most precious gifts that we can receive—no matter how we receive them. Mr. Wise was there when the children were born, he raised them, he is their father. The fact that they are not biologically his should never have been made known to them. Those three boys are the ones who have suffered the most.

As the consulting psychologist for the Ann Arbor Police Department, I constructed the psychological profile that helped identify Coral Watts as a serial killer. When I interviewed him in Texas after his arrest, his lack of remorse was chilling. Now, because of poor legal decisions made in 1982, Mr. Watts may be released. I don't know what his current mental state is, but in general individuals with ingrained patterns of behavior, such as sexually motivated homicides, only stop because victims are not readily available.

Is Martha Burk kidding? Who cares if a woman is admitted into the Augusta National Golf Club? There are many more serious and pressing issues facing women today than this. It's sad that Ms. Burk thinks women in Augusta are second-class citizens because they don't belong to the National.

So Tiger Woods believes that the Augusta National Golf Club has the right to determine who can join? I wonder if he would feel the same if Augusta refused to allow African-Americans to become members.

Madonna thinks that a woman's breast-feeding her child on TV is amoral and a play for a ratings boost? So what does she call a book of X-rated photos of herself? Talk about your all-time hypocrite!
