Stanford offender got life sentence

The victim fought back with words of rage. "I thought there's no way this is going to trial; there were witnesses, there was dirt in my body, he ran but was caught," she wrote in a 12-page statement at the sentencing of Brock Turner, the former Stanford student convicted of sexually assaulting her. "He's going to settle, formally apologize, and we will both move on. Instead, I was told he hired a powerful attorney, expert witnesses, private investigators who were going to try and find details about my personal life to use against me."

Diet, alcohol and gout

DEAR DR. ROACH: After two major bouts of gout, my husband was treated with Medrol and colchicine, and has resorted to a low-purine diet in order to decrease the frequency of gout attacks, with their attendant pain and potential renal damage. He completely avoids beef, pork, lamb, mushrooms and rich seafood such as scallops. Chicken and turkey are OK. On this dietary regimen he has not experienced gouty episodes. His diet is quite satisfying, for the butchers today excel at making "meat" products from chicken and turkey. He takes 50 mg of allopurinol daily, even though his uric acid level ...

Fingerprinting Is racist?

Former Attorney General Eric Holder has come out against proposals in Chicago and New Jersey to require fingerprint background checks of drivers for ride-hailing platforms such as Uber and Lyft. Why would President Obama's onetime top lawman come out against regulation that is supposed to protect the riding public? Credit the intersection of two forces. First, Holder's tony corporate law firm, Covington & Burling, represents Uber. Also, as Holder sees it, requiring drivers to submit fingerprints may "have a discriminatory impact on communities of color."

Civics lesson needed in San Jose

"My nose is broken. I have bruises and scratches all over. I got knocked in the head a lot," Santa Clara's Juan Hernandez, 38, told me. He suffered a mild concussion. That's the price Hernandez paid for attending the infamous Donald Trump rally in San Jose last week at which protesters were seen burning flags and Trump hats, pelting a supporter with an egg and mobbing people who were doing what civics teachers tell students citizens are supposed to do. For his trouble, Hernandez was called names, beaten and bloodied. For dessert, he got to hear politicians suggest ...

‘Self-Inflicted’ email mess

Dana Milbank and Ruth Marcus are both Yale-educated reporters-turned-columnists at The Washington Post. They view the world through the same lens. This sometimes means they can write pretty much the same column. It also means they both have a huge blind spot when it comes to sympathizing with Hillary Clinton.

From elephant to tortoise

As usual, the GOP primary was sewn up before California's June 7 primary. By late May, Donald Trump had the 1,237 delegates needed to win the nod. Nonetheless, I voted for Ohio Gov. John Kasich by absentee ballot, even though Kasich suspended his campaign last month. Kasich is a solid conservative with a record of achievement. His name remains on the ballot, as do my many reservations about the GOP front-runner.

Tonsil stones explained

DEAR DR. ROACH: Could you share some information about tonsil stones? I had never heard of them until I took my 15-year-old granddaughter to the doctor for a sore throat and she was shown one. It stayed there for about four days until it came out. -- B.H.

Push in Sacramento to let felons vote in jail

California lawmakers seem intent on making Sacramento the place where reasonable reforms, much like runaway trains, jump the tracks. In that no-speed-limit spirit Tuesday, the California Assembly voted 41-37 to allow convicted felons to vote in jail. (Yes, you read that correctly.) If Assembly Bill 2466 becomes law, the American Civil Liberties Union estimates that 50,000 adults will be able to vote behind bars. The state doesn't trust these people on the streets, but they are welcome in the voting booth.
