1. On "George Clooney arrested, handcuffed"

Whitney Meek: " I support his efforts! However, in my small, minute particle of the world, I cannot get too many fired up, as I live near the 2nd poorest county in the United States. Now, while children are not close to starving, there are social and economic impacts from the lack of jobs. I wish that some of the stars would focus on issues in the United States, also."

2. On "Raquel Welch complains about today's sex-crazed culture"

Richard Robles: "She should know, she started it. Has anyone who agrees with her seen any of her movies? The woman was decades ahead of her time when it comes to women being proud of their sexuality. What's wrong is that we are not sex obsessed we are under educated in understanding sexuality. Once we start to understand our biology we learn to properly express ourselves."

3. On "Pacific Princess from 'The Love Boat' may be scrapped"

Patricia Tilson: "I sailed on that ship twice in 2001 out of NYC, both before and after 9/11. She's a grand old dame. The old Island Princess is still in service with another line, though. Scrapping her seems such a shame."

4. On "Whitney Houston's family opens up to Oprah"

Tammy Stafford Ruble: " I'm not sure who I find more despicable, Oprah for doing the interview, or Houston's family for allowing her daughter to do it. Crass, either way."

5. On "Latest photo hacking targets 'Glee' star Heather Morris"

Robert Ramrattan: "Uhm... who's Heather Morris? I knew a Morris once... He was a cat... a finicky eater if I recall..."
