Dear Tell All: I couldn't agree more with the letter from Avenging Angel ("The Return of Chris Brown," 2/17/2012). She was outraged and disgusted about Chris Brown being allowed to perform at the Grammys, as though he hadn't beaten up his girlfriend Rihanna before the ceremony three years ago. If I were Rihanna, I'd avoid that awards show forever.

This is a similar situation to when Roman Polanski won an Oscar for a film he directed, even though he's a fugitive for sexual abuse of a minor. The audience at the Academy Awards gave him an "in absentia" standing ovation! Come on, people, we should all be outraged in such cases.

Just for the record, I boycott all Polanski films and Chris Brown music, plus Woody Allen's films since he took up with his partner Mia Farrow's daughter, Soon-Yi Previn. That'll show those jerks. Just sign me,

Sick of Creeps

Dear Tell All: This is regarding the letter from Lovelorn, the shy guy who yearns to date the office mate he calls Luscious ("Valentine's Day Disaster," 2/10/2012). According to him, she's working her way through his male coworkers, most recently a dude nicknamed the Beast.

Lovelorn should forget about Luscious. Dipping your pen in the company ink is as bad an idea as they come, especially if there's a "now serving" sign above her cubicle.

If Lovelorn really wants to throw it in her, he should do so with the expectation of moving on as soon as the fun is gone and be sure he's not the last guy she does in the office. Any relationship with her will fail.

So do yourself a favor, Lovelorn, and find someone else to develop a relationship with. It will be less embarrassing for you around the water cooler since you don't seem to be the type to offer a high-five to the Beast the morning after.
