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.

On income ‘inequality’

Is there a more brain-dead concept than to empower the government to fight "income inequality"? What sane, normal, rational human being thinks that human talent, drive, interests and opportunity can - or should - result in equal outcomes?

California counts for nothing

I got my absentee ballot in the mail, which reminded me: We have an election next Tuesday. The excitement is hard to bear. Oh, wait. There is no excitement. The ballot is still sitting in the pile on the kitchen table. I intend to fill it out because that's what good citizens should do - not because I even remotely think it will matter.

Hillary Clinton’s emails: She’s lying in plain sight

Speaking in San Francisco Thursday, Hillary Clinton told supporters that Donald Trump is not fit to be president. "He roots for himself," the former Secretary of State proclaimed, "and that's the type of person who should not be president of the United States." By that standard, Clinton herself has no business running to win the White House.
