iN RESPONSE TO THE Issue of Nov. 5, 2012


'Get it Done, Mr. President'

I hope Michael Tomasky is right and that the president closes strong. Barack Obama is the man who can deliver the precise solutions to America's problems as well as the world's.

Nelson Rangtaiba Maram Bangalore, India

First your magazine asks President Obama to take a hike. Now your magazine seems to be supporting him? My personal opinion: Obama is running on a lousy record. I can't understand why anyone is voting for him.

'A Leaner, Meaner James Bond in "Skyfall"'

Critical response to the films From Russia With Love, On Her Majesty's Secret Service (now, with due hindsight, more generally honored by fans and critics alike), and the 2006 version of Casino Royale was strong then and has gotten stronger over the years. This suggests to me that the Bond films are at their best when they stick relatively closely to--or at least attempt to honor--their source material: Ian Fleming and his Bond stories and novels.

Robert W. Dillon Jr., Ph.D., Professor of Theater Combat, Acting, History, and Analysis, Department of Theater and Dance, Southeast Missouri State University, Cape Girardeau, Mo.

Having been a James Bond fan for a very long time, allow me to say there was and will be only one James Bond: Sean Connery!
