Onshore tax havens

The first thing you notice on the cab ride from the airport to downtown Panama City is the skyscrapers. They're architecturally beautiful, but jumbled together as if there was no plan or consideration for how they might look next to one another.

Selectively eliminate foods that bring on reflux

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have GERD. I've been on a proton pump inhibitor for a month, and though it's quite effective, I do not want to remain on it because of the possible side effects. Apart from Crestor, I do not take any additional medications.

America’s other epidemic: Chronic untreated pain

The death of Prince, who apparently had a Percocet problem, and a 2016 presidential primary peppered with New England town halls that delved into increased heroin overdoses and prescription drug abuse have converged to create what CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta calls "a public health epidemic." Drug addiction is 2016's big nonpolitical story. CNN aired a special, "Prescription Addiction: Dead in the USA." The Senate passed the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act to provide grants for treatment and improved monitoring. The House also is working on legislation, with funding expected later in the year.

Donald Trump the Disrupter

Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the GOP House leadership member from Washington state, finally uttered the words I've been waiting to hear with respect to Donald Trump's march on the nation's capital. In an NBC News interview with my pal Luke Russert, she said that Trump is a "disrupter," and we have to learn that that's a good thing.

Clinton’s private server, Sanders’ public blindness

Of course I had to ask Sen. Bernie Sanders about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's private email account when he came to a San Francisco Chronicle editorial board meeting Tuesday. When Sanders famously offered that he didn't want to hear about those "damn emails" - the focus of an FBI investigation - during the first 2016 Democratic primary debate, he forfeited a potent issue. (Some Democrats fear the Department of Justice actually might indict Clinton after she wins the nomination.)

Who speaks for Republicans?

"No modern precedent exists for the revival of a party so badly defeated, so intensely discredited, and so essentially split as the Republican Party is today."

Donald Trump can win

For the umpteenth time, Donald Trump is no conservative. He is an economic populist. When asked to name the top three functions of government, he said national security, health care and education. Two of the three named "duties" one does not find in Article I, Section 8 of the United States Constitution.

No third-party candidate

Every four years, there is political chatter about trying to run a third-party candidate who will supposedly be more conservative than the Republican nominee. The lesson is the same every time this is tried: third-party candidates do not win because the United States is a two-party country.

Trump must prove that he can do the job

Donald Trump has swept the primaries and is now the presumptive GOP presidential nominee. His almost unbelievable primary surge - from New York to Indiana - was nothing short of breathtaking. He has confounded almost all the pundits and a majority of elected officials.

Adulthood in the nanny state

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors is flirting with the idea of letting 16- and 17-year-olds vote in local elections. Last year, Supervisor John Avalos floated the notion, but it didn't go anywhere. But this is an election year - and in election years, noxious proposals carry extra currency. So expect City Hall to pass the measure and put it on the ballot. Then expect voters to exercise better judgment and reject the measure.

Transgender ‘fact’ & fantasy

The liberal opinion site that calls itself PolitiFact insists it's just a fact-checking website. When choosing to assess whether a politician's claim is true or false, their "About Us" page says they ask: "Is the statement rooted in a fact that is verifiable? We don't check opinions, and we recognize that in the world of speechmaking and political rhetoric, there is license for hyperbole."

It’s panic time on the right

When Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas announced Tuesday night, after losing Indiana, that he was suspending his presidential primary campaign, it was not a fatal blow to the stop-Trump movement. Many Republicans who oppose Donald Trump - because he's a self-serving, unreliable conservative likely to alienate huge swaths of the American electorate - weren't particularly strong on Cruz, a staunch conservative but also a craven opportunist who hurt the GOP brand with such kamikaze stunts as his push to shut down the government in a bound-to-fail (and it did) bid to defund Obamacare.
