50 HOTTEST BACHELORS
Hmmm, let's see...Brad Pitt...Tom Cruise...Matthew McConaughey? This woman's heart flutters every time she sees Matthew with or without his shirt. He's gorgeous!

I love Bradley Cooper, featured in "Guys on the Rise." As for his self-proclaimed culinary skills, you can let him know I'll provide the wine, fully stocked kitchen and complimentary taste-testing skills anytime!

Thumbs up for choosing Jason Mulgrew as "Bachelor Blogger." I've been reading his blog for months and find him to be a great writer with an awesome sense of humor. I'm happy he's getting recognition for his efforts.

Thanks for John Stamos. I've been in love with him for 20 years, and he just seems to get better with age.

You revved up my engine with your array of handsome bachelors. But what am I supposed to do with this information? It's like dangling a carrot in front of a bunny. I'm a single, attractive, educated young lady with a fulfilling career, but is John Stamos going to walk into my office? Give us a real chance with men who are actually attainable.

KATIE HOLMES
I want to wish the best to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes. They've made me believe in love again. Those smiling faces and their happiness will always make me a fan of both actors.
Christianne Zamprogne
Weymouth, Mass.

After giving up independent-minded, mature women, Tom's found a young, adoring pup to mold the way he wants. With just a few short weeks of dating, she's already embracing Scientology.

FLAT-HEADED BABIES
Thank you for the July 4 article about plagiocephaly helmets and for helping people understand children with orthotic helmets aren't disabled or injured. I'm glad I found a way to help my son avoid permanent damage and self-esteem issues.
Stephanie Barr
Flower Mound, Texas

I was so excited when I saw the picture of the cute little boy wearing a molding helmet. However, your story downplayed the medical need for this helmet by stating it is "a cosmetic issue." It's not always. You should have done more in-depth reporting about the medical necessity of these helmets, which are sometimes needed due to plagiocephaly, craniosynostosis and torticollis.
Kristen Peterson
Midland Park, N.J.

While it's great the issue of positional plagiocephaly is being brought to the public's attention, I don't agree with the tone and implications of your article. Yes, this can be "a cosmetic issue," but not always. My son had craniosynostosis, which can be misdiagnosed as plagiocephaly. I feel bad about him having to wear a helmet during summer months. But how much worse would it be if I had to comfort him on being teased due to the shape of his head? Now, how many people are going to assume that it's because of a vanity issue of mine? Thanks a lot!
