CONNERY BOND Thank you, thank you! After week upon week of Generation X cover subjects, you put forth an article on Sean Connery ( 262, Feb. 17). He’s one of the few actors I really grew up with-from the James Bond films of the early ’60s to The Hunt for Red October. You honored a real hero with the cover photo and with a superb article. Randy Meyer Evanston, Ill.

Bravo on an excellent interview with Sean Connery. His indefatigable talent, wit, and graciousness make him one of the great delights on screen today. Those traits, along with his dashing good looks and gravelly smooth voice, make him the sexiest man alive. Jennifer Malzone Boston

Like fine wine, Sean Connery gets better with age. Claudia Potter Tualatin, Ore.

Julia Ormond finds Sean Connery sexy? Sorry, but I don’t buy it-he’s too long in the tooth. I’m 33 and am also not attracted to ”sex symbols” Jack Nicholson, Warren Beatty, or Mick Jagger. They’re old enough to be my father and are as much of a turn-on. Terry Hernon MacDonald North Massapequa, N.Y.


Amanda’s diagnosis of Hodgkin’s disease on Melrose Place was not ”a tad too thirtysomething.” I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s at 24. Twentysomethings can get cancer, even Amanda Woodward. Lisa Carpenter Seattle field hand

Congratulations on the photograph of Sally Field, dressed in black, with a hat in her left hand, and-heaven forbid-a cigarette in her right. The image was of a sensual and subdued Sally. I appreciate the risk this talented lady took to be seen with a lit cigarette in her hand, whether she really smokes or not. Sally proves she has plenty of chutzpah, and I respect her for that. Nancy Morgan Sarasota, Fla.


Thanks for the Adam Sandler article. Although Saturday Night Live remains a bad show, Sandler makes the most of what he’s given. He’s the best thing on the program. Jon Chattman Yonkers, N.Y.


Excellent! That’s the only word I can use to describe Dana Kennedy’s review of O.J. Simpson’s book I Want to Tell You. I’m so tired of the media placating Simpson. Kennedy wrote what the rest of us are thinking. Sandy Crouch Fort Polk, La.

EW was reduced from a quality publication to a tabloid by publishing Dana Kennedy’s venom under the guise of a review. Even the illustration was biased. Bill Durning San Jose, Calif.
