OBAMA TO GOP

Washington, D.C., should host an Olympics for finger-pointing. There would be no shortage of accomplished practitioners. Start with President Barack Obama, who, in introducing Judge Merrick Garland as his choice to replace Justice Antonin Scalia on the big bench, asked the Senate "to give him a fair hearing and then an up-or-down vote." He told senators: "If you don't, then it will not only be an abdication of the Senate's constitutional duty, it will indicate a process for nominating and confirming judges that is beyond repair. It will mean everything is subject to the most partisan of ...

Clinton, Sanders migrate

I learned a new word at last Wednesday night's Univision Democratic debate - "Hispandering." Univision's Maria Elena Salinas asked former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton whether she was flip-flopping on her erstwhile opposition to "illegal immigrants." (It's interesting Salinas did not say "undocumented." She said "illegal" immigrants.) Or was Clinton "Hispandering"? Salinas explained that the term means "pandering to Latinos."

It’s the delegates, stupid

Whenever I hear some otherwise smart person explain to me how Joe Biden is going to march in and become the Democratic nominee, or how "they" - whoever they are - are going to come in and save the Republican Party from Donald Trump, I pretty much know that person has never been to a convention or met a delegate, let alone tried to convince one to be for someone other than the person he or she was elected to support.

Big drop in bone density might require meds

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 68-year-old woman diagnosed with osteopenia. My hip T-score is -2.3, and lumbar spine T-score is -1.6. My doctor suggested medication, but I am concerned about side effects. Is this really necessary? Can I safely wait? I am very active, eat a well-balanced diet and take calcium and vitamin D supplements. Three years ago, my scores were -1.3 and -0.1, so this seems a significant change. Also, what medication is best to try? -- N.M.
