Your selection of the 100 greatest moments in entertainment was flawless (#100 Jan. 10). I won’t tell you how many moments I personally recall; let’s just say I remember rushing home from work to see the final Fugitive episode (1967). And Michael Jackson in his magic shoes (1984) is still in a class by himself.

Congratulations to your entire staff on reaching 100. As an avid reader and subscriber from your inception, I’ve had many hours of pleasure from your excellent magazine. Keep up the good work and here’s to another 100!
Your wonderful article on en-tertainment history provided me with a nostalgic trip in time. Only one glaring omission spoiled my trip. No Betty Grable?

Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series? Roger Maris’ 61 home runs in ’61?

The Democratic National Convention of 1968? The Thomas-Hill Senate hearings?
I enjoyed your feature ”The Future Is Now” in the News & Notes section. One footnote, however, regarding Barbra Streisand’s Oscar tally. In addition to the Oscar she won for Best Actress for Funny Girl, she also won an Oscar for Best Song in 1976 (”Evergreen” from A Star Is Born).

Thanks for including space-program events in your greatest entertainment moments issue. These great journeys have transcended science fiction. On a related note, the astronaut featured in the MTV graphic is John Young, not Neil Armstrong. William McEwen
After reading over a dozen publications featuring recent stories on Oliver Stone’s film JFK, it strikes me as odd that it would take a movie reviewer to accurately sum up not only the film but the entire assassination and the years that have followed it. Hats off to critic Owen Gleiberman.
