Hillary: Nominee or indictee?

While perhaps too early for Democratic elites to panic and begin bailing out on Hillary Clinton's campaign as a doomed vessel, they would be well advised not to miss any of the lifeboat drills.

We all need vacations

Every time the president goes on vacation, roughly half the talking heads jump all over him. They tally up how many days he's spent on vacation, or how many rounds of golf he's played since he became president, and then manage to remind us that we're not taking vacations on fancy islands in houses that rent out for a princely sum.

Donald drives the debate

"If it weren't for me," Donald Trump told the Fox News moderators at the first Republican presidential debate, "you wouldn't even be talking about illegal immigration." The record-breaking audience of 24 million, which is 10 times Fox's usual nightly viewership, had to agree.

Backing Hard Knocks University

In the 1960s, I attended the University of North Texas. It was a public school blessed with good teachers and an educational culture focused on enabling us students to become socially useful citizens. And it was affordable - with close-to-free tuition and a part-time job, I could get a good education, gain experience in everything from work to civic activism, graduate in four years, and obtain a debt-free start in life.

THE HOMELESS

The Obama Department of Justice argued last week that a Boise, Idaho, law against "public sleeping in a city without adequate shelter space constitutes criminalizing homelessness itself, in violation of the Eighth Amendment." In a statement of interest filed in federal court, the Obama administration asserted that banning sleeping and camping in public places constitutes "cruel and unusual punishment." Republican candidates, please take note.

Shingles vaccine can prevent complications

DEAR DR. ROACH: My boyfriend, who is in his 60s, got the recommended shingles shot a couple of years ago. Three weeks ago, he got a very bad case of shingles. It went from the front of his stomach, along the left side, to the middle of his spine. He has huge blisters, a red rash, pain and no appetite, and he constantly sleeps. The doctor put him on a regimen of valacyclovir. He was told to keep the area moist to avoid cracking and pulling of the blisters and rash. I thought that if you got the shingles shot ...

POOPING ON WALKS

DEAR DIDI: I take my dog for a nice walk each morning while the temperatures are still cool. The other morning he was doing his business and I stood ready with poop bag in hand. However, the owner of that yard came rushing out yelling at me. I showed her my poop bag and said I was going to pick it up but she was upset that I even allowed my dog to poop and pee at all! I was a defensive mom at that point and will never walk down that street again. It did get me wondering what ...

California experiencing crime wave less than year after election

"The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act" isn't living up to its promise. Also known as Proposition 47, the California ballot initiative, which was approved in November 2014 with 60 percent of the vote, downgraded drug possession and many property crimes from a felony to a misdemeanor. Proponents argued that lesser punishment for low-level offenders would enhance public safety. San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon was the rare prosecutor who pushed for its approval. He told the San Francisco Chronicle, "What we have been doing hasn't worked, frankly."
