BRITNEY'S MARRIAGE ACT

I had serious doubts about the feelings between Britney and Kevin, but reading your article and seeing the photographs, I truly believe they're in love. The pictures captured that love, and the words the couple shared about their relationship were heartwarming. I wish the newlyweds the best.

I can only imagine the negative comments people will make about this wedding and marriage. I'm tired of it. Your cover story was beautiful. And while the circumstances for Britney and Kevin aren't the best, no one knows if they're going to make it or not. Everyone needs to give them a break.

Never in my life have I seen two people more in love with being in front of the camera. Their romance is based solely on promotion. Britney is only in love with all the talk about her, and Kevin's in love with her money. I give this marriage a year and hope they won't bring any children into this demented union.

They may have covered themselves in silk and rose petals, but Britney's and Kevin's behavior is that of swine.

It seems Britney Spears and Kevin Federline have succeeded not only in getting married, but also raising the bar for trashy weddings. Pimp sweats? A stripper pole at the afterparty?

WHEEL AND DEAL
Your feature "Never Say Never" about the nonprofit group Second Wind Dreams proved to be quite interesting. While it highlighted the great opportunities the agency is giving to an incredible part of our society, it left me very upset. The second sentence in the piece claims that Evelyn Roberts "is wheelchair-bound and suffers from liver cancer." I'm quite sure I could go to the Sunny Hill Skilled Rehab Center in Joliet, Ill., and wouldn't find Ms. Roberts bound to her wheelchair. In fact, your picture in the article shows her riding a camel without a wheelchair. People aren't bound or confined to wheelchairs. Please educate your writers about the appropriate terminology for people with disabilities.

HOME CARE
Thank you for reporting "Loathe Thy Neighbor," about the horrendous actions of homeowners' associations. I don't feel like I live in the land of the free. It's a sad day when a few can tell an entire community how to live.

Anyone who doesn't understand what a homeowners' association is shouldn't move into a neighborhood that has one. Associations are supposed to ensure a clean and tasteful environment. People who want a field of pink flamingos should move elsewhere.

PRINCE CHARMING
Thanks for your story about Prince Harry in Lesotho. Not only did he work with the people in a hands-on capacity, Harry gave recognition to a little-known African country.

STONE WEAR
Ugh! I just saw your pictures of Sharon Stone vamping it up on the red carpet at the Emmys. Somebody feed her a candy bar! What does she weigh? 90 lbs. soaking wet?
