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.

Dear Amy: I am a 32-year-old single woman with many married friends. A few months ago, I went to a concert with a few couples and a married man who didn't bring his wife. In the back seat of a car on the way home, he tried to kiss me. I pulled away, and the next day when he sent me an e-mail saying he had a good time, I didn't respond. I saw this same man and his wife and kids at a recent dinner party. Before I left, he said he wanted to have coffee sometime and that he'd like to get to know me better.

It was a sultry summer afternoon on the wooded campus of Sarah Lawrence College, where Julianna Margulies got her start onstage as an undergraduate in the late 1980s, and the actress was reminiscing about what she used to hear from casting directors. "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.
