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. He had a crisis, acted immediately, got to the bottom of it: found the offenders, heads rolled, they were fired. He spoke, he apologized, he solved the problem. He didn't drag it on with empty promises like our president. Lying gets you everywhere; telling the truth condemns you. With President Obama at the helm, I think there is no longer a standard of right and wrong.

The officer had been called to the Oceanside Harbor to investigate a report of a man sleeping or passed out on a bench. When the officer, a 15-year veteran, approached the man, he noticed a gun in the man's waistband, officials said.

Long ago, at the far end of the town, there lived a very bitter man. Some said he was born bitter. Others said he became bitter slowly, year by year, because his parents were not nice people. Regardless of the reason, the bitter man was not very pleasant to be around. The people of the town left him alone and they tried not to tread on the road that ran by his dilapidated house. Being left alone was the only thing that made this bitter man happy. How bitter was this man?

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.
