Re “Christie tries to turn the page,” Jan. 15 Not that I'm a Chris Christie fan - I'm still waiting for the other shoe to drop - but he has impressed me. He is a man of action.

"They would always say, 'Well, you'll never do TV,' " she recalled. "I was either too Jewish-looking, too European-looking, too Greek-looking. Ethnic. But yet I wasn't ethnic, so no one knew what to do with me. . . . I just thought, 'OK, so I won't do that.
