Re "Christie tries to stem traffic scandal fallout," Jan. 10 One can imagine a movie in which several fraternity brothers drink and decide to close all but one lane leading to the nation's busiest bridge, which they do by simply putting up traffic cones. We would all laugh as the camera shows schoolchildren on buses having to go to the bathroom, a baby being born in a car or a jobless man going crazy because he misses an interview. But in the real world, what New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's staff did was an almost unimaginable abuse of power and an act of terror.

Karl Benjamin, a painter of dazzling geometric abstractions who established a national reputation in 1959 as one of four Los Angeles-based Abstract Classicists and created a highly acclaimed body of work that celebrates the glories of color in all its variations, has died. He was 86. Benjamin died Thursday of congestive heart failure at his home in Claremont, said his daughter Beth Marie Benjamin. His work had been displayed last year in "Karl Benjamin and the Evolution of the Abstraction, 1950-1980" at the Louis Stern Fine Arts gallery in West Hollywood as part of the region-wide Pacific Standard Time exhibitions.

The mark of a truly revolutionary thinker is that his revolution has to be fought anew in every generation. That's the case with Peter F. Drucker, whose teachings on business management retain their startling wisdom four years after his death at the age of 95 and seven decades after the publication of his first book -- the first of 39. This year was the centenary of Peter Drucker's birth. It wouldn't be right to let the year expire without reviewing how his ideas apply to business today.
