"As the president said, if your actions result in only saving one life, they're worth taking," Vice President Joe Biden declared last week as he previewed what his commission on gun violence might actually do. "There are executive orders, there's executive action that can be taken. We haven't decided what that is yet. But we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and the rest of the Cabinet members as well as legislative action that we believe is required. " Mr. Biden insisted that it is a moral imperative for the White House to do something: "It's critically important that we act. " Most of the attention, understandably, is on Mr. Biden's suggestion that the president will consider using executive orders to do things he couldn't possibly accomplish legislatively.

"Bodies of Water," by Rosanne Cash. Hyperion. 133 pages. $19.95 The first story in Rosanne Cash's first book appropriately narrates a beginning - the birth of a baby girl, and what feels to the mother like her own spiritual rebirth. The book itself is a kind of rebirth too, marking the luminous arrival of its music-star author on the literary scene.The recent Joan Collins court shenanigans in New York highlighted the problem with the typical celebrity-authored book: it is less a book than a generic paper product that draws all its appeal from the famous name tacked onto it."

You have made it through the first marathon of the holiday season. Thanksgiving and Black Friday down, many more days of shopping, eating and partying to go. Congratulations. Though I love Turkey Day, some of the most wearing things about the Thanksgiving blow-out are the same old questions from relatives. Are you seeing anyone? Are you seeing anyone seriously? When are you getting married? More so than the midnight sales and nonstop Christmas music from Halloween to New Year's, I abhor families' prying questions about singlehood.

Sex and the single parent? You bet.They want it. They need it. They intend to find it. But the truth is that millions of America's single parents can't even engineer a carefree evening away from home, let alone a whole night out, a romantic weekend or a long-term relationship.Their problem: how to deal with the children while trying to live a single life.It's a topic on which few courses are taught or books written, according to those who live the life and study the subject. And for the roughly 30 percent of American households consisting of single adults with kids (says the census)

Q: I am dating an attractive, intelligent woman for whom I care deeply. Her ex-husband is an unemployed alcoholic who abused her emotionally during the marriage, and they had a child together.The other day I went to her office to take her out to lunch, and she was on the phone with him. She said that after he told her to buy their son shoes at a certain store (no, he doesn't keep up on child support) he was making hints about their getting back together. She was in a fog for half an hour, thinking about the call.

Q: I thought you might be interested in some thoughts on midlife singleness, ideas that have been on my mind during the nearly three years since I became a widow. My husband committed suicide when I was 45.The large adjustments I seem to be able to handle quite aptly. Day-to-day business, constant changes in the family structure, meals for one or for many, developing new interests, and even single parenting -- all eventually click in. It's the relationships with those outside my sphere that I have so much difficulty with.
