Dear Amy: I am a 41-year-old happily married woman with three children. I graduated from college 20 years ago, and I have remained in touch with a friend, "Jerry." He does not tell his wife that we are in touch or that we meet on occasion. Long ago, Jerry had feelings for me. I never knew he felt that way. But his wife (then girlfriend) knew and disliked me. Though nothing improper has occurred between Jerry and me, his refusal to tell his wife about our ongoing friendship doesn't sit right with me. My husband has met Jerry many times.

Reading the special report on "The Iran Deception," I got the impression that there was more "stupidity" than "deception" connected with this unfortunate happening. I hope those connected with it in Washington read this detailed, explicit and honest expose of one of America's darkest moments--then hang their heads in shame and guilt. In this democracy, there is no other way they will hang. MONROE RUBINGER Beverly Hills

The basic message of "Deception" is that all that ultimately matters is a trustworthy relationship. That's the main reason, too, why the blackmail thriller, in theaters Friday, landed on 20th Century Fox's release schedule. Fox has a well-deserved reputation for narrowly focusing on easy-to-market movies with a clearly defined audience and built-in sales hooks: "Horton Hears a Who," "The Fantastic Four," "Live Free or Die Hard."
