What a ‘doggy first-aid kit’ should contain

DEAR DIDI: My family and I would like to thank you again for stopping to help us when our dog, Daisy, was being attacked by a stray dog while we were out walking. Daisy's puncture wounds are healing well and we are convinced she would not have survived if you hadn't intervened. We were further impressed that you carry a "doggy first-aid kit" and we now want to have one in our family. Would you be willing to share what was in your kit? - Grateful Lathrop Family

Falsehoods and false alarms

Why does Donald Trump repeat talking points that he knows are untrue? During Tuesday night's debate, The Donald asserted that before 9/11, terrorists put their "friends, family, girlfriends" into planes, and "they were sent back - for the most part to Saudi Arabia. They knew what was going on. They went home, and they wanted to watch their boyfriends on television."

Surviving a terror attack

About 20 years ago, I was Christmas shopping at a local mall. I had my kids with me and just as we were getting out of our car we heard a loud commotion. We heard screams and gunshots as the doors burst open and people began running for their lives. I especially recall one young father running with his toddler in his arms. It seems that a couple criminals decided to try a smash and grab at the jewelry department of one of the anchor stores. I quickly got the kids in the car and got the heck out of ...

The Lake Chabot rant

In the age of the cellphone camera, interactions that are best forgotten instead escalate and become chew toys for the chattering class. When a video goes viral, the public's sense of proportion often goes AWOL.

Trump’s word is worthless

Any day now, Donald Trump may walk back his Monday call for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on." If so, he won't change his mind because he regrets insulting Muslim Americans - no small number of whom, unlike Trump, have served in the military -- or because his rhetoric threatens to isolate this country when it needs allies, especially in the Middle East. He'll change his mind because he never really means anything he says.

Wishing terrorism away

When asked why President Barack Obama insisted on pursuing a nuclear deal with Iran, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said: "I think that the pursuit of the agreement is based on the President's hope that over a 10-year period with the sanctions being lifted that the Iranians will become a constructive stakeholder in the international community. That -- that as their economy begins to grow again, that - that they will abandon their ideology, their theology, their revolutionary principles, their meddling in various parts of the region. And, frankly, I believe that's very unrealistic."
