Could Trump win?

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? How did I get this? Is there anything I can do?

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 ...

Laser lights & dogs

DEAR DIDI: I have an 8 month old German Shepherd. She has so much energy! We read your column faithfully each week and value your opinion. My son likes to play laser light with Sassy and she is nuts for the game. You are training our neighbor's dog and he mentioned to us that you warned him against playing laser with dogs. He has a black lab. Is it a breed thing or all dogs that shouldn't play laser lights? - Manteca Dog Mommy

Calcium sources differ, needs remain the same

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 64-year-old woman with a thin frame who was recently diagnosed with osteoporosis. In the past 10 years, my bone density has declined despite regular exercise, a diet high in dairy products and taking calcium carbonate supplements. My doctor prescribed Forteo injections for one year to hopefully improve my bone density, and then transitioned me to Prolia.

Wisconsin’s grocery dictators

Republicans may like to rail against big government. But here in Wisconsin - where conservative lawmakers just introduced a bill to dramatically restrict what people can buy with their own food stamps - Republicans want to cook up a new kind of nanny state.

SF: Repeat offenders, come & stay

San Francisco is not likely to change its ill-conceived sanctuary-city policy because City Hall must bow to progressives who don't believe in deporting undocumented immigrants with serious criminal records. Activists such as Angela Chan of the Asian Law Caucus believe that Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi was right to release Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez rather than turn him over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement as requested. They don't care that Lopez-Sanchez had been convicted of seven felonies and deported five times before he was arrested for the July 1 shooting death of Kathryn Steinle.
