Reader finds marital status query intrusive

DEAR DR. ROACH: I recently visited an ophthalmologist. Prior to the consultation, his staff member went over a form with me, including my marital status -- single, married, divorced, widowed, partnered, etc. I've gotten questions like this in a number of doctors' offices, and it's on a form I've seen a number of times. I can understand that a gynecologist, for example, might need to know whether a patient had given birth and whether a patient is sexually active. But the question about marital status doesn't elicit that information. And why would an ophthalmologist need that information ...

The plot to destroy Nixon

In his new biography "Being Nixon: A Man Divided," Evan Thomas concedes a point. Richard Nixon, he writes, "was not paranoid; the press and the 'Georgetown set' really were out to get him."

Erythema multiforme presents with distinctive rash

DEAR DR. ROACH: My sister broke out in a full-body rash of red, itchy blotches, and her doctor told her it was erythema multiforme. It is rare, and he sees only a few cases per year. Could you elaborate more on it -- causes, treatment, etc.? -- A.M.

The sanctuary scandal

Donald Trump's unorthodox campaign has performed a public service by shining the national spotlight on the problem of "sanctuary cities," which shelter illegal aliens from deportation. The tragedy of Kate Steinle, who died in the arms of her father after being shot by an illegal alien, is that her death was preventable, yet officials have defiantly defended their sanctuary policies.

Rolling up with Willie Nelson

Flogging the flag

When South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley signed a bill to boot the Confederate flag from State House grounds earlier this month, it was a beautiful moment - if decades late. State lawmakers finally acted out of revulsion from images of a confessed shooter posing with the Civil War relic before he shot to death nine African-American church parishioners June 17. Flag apologists lost their stomach for defending the banner as an emblem of states' rights.

On Obama’s watch

Ninety-five percent of black voters in 2008 voted for then-Sen. Barack Obama. Surely a "progressive" black president would care about, empathize with and understand black America in a way no other president ever has or could, right? Exit polls from Pew Research show that 63 percent of all voters - and 65 percent of Obama voters - cited the economy as the number one reason they voted for him. Iraq was a distant second at 10 percent. Even for black Obama voters, "It's the economy, stupid."

Heart finds a way around bundle branch block

DEAR DR. ROACH: I'm a female, age 70, who is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 125 pounds. I have no problems with cholesterol, diabetes or blood pressure. I do not take any medications, just vitamins. I take dance exercise classes and walk often. I recently went for my checkup and found that I have a left bundle branch block. What happened?

Seeking sanctuary sanity

July 1 was one of those evenings when you feel blessed to be in San Francisco, especially if you are strolling along Pier 14. But every reader knows what happened next: A bullet struck Kathryn Steinle, 32, as she walked arm in arm with her father. Neither knew what had happened; the shot killed a vibrant woman - for which an immigrant with seven felony convictions and five deportations has been charged. (Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez has pleaded not guilty.) On Tuesday, less than a month later, Jim Steinle found himself where he never thought he would be - testifying before the Senate ...
