Surprise. The one woman in the crowded Republican field, Carly Fiorina, turns out to be articulate and well informed, thoughtful and independent, actually the standout in the second-tier debate and really, if you're judging, the best debater of the night.

FOX TV NEWS

"Conservatives Furious at Fox, Say Trump Wasn't Treated Fairly," read the Newsmax headline Friday. Talk-radio show host Mark Levin told Breitbart News it was "outrageous" that moderator Megyn Kelly questioned Donald Trump about his coarse language - "fat pigs, dogs, slobs" - referring to women. Levin complained it was "a National Enquirer debate, not a Republican debate," with too much "opposition research." Political analyst Dick Morris detected a "disturbing" trend at Fox. The conservative blog Media Equalizer offered that many conservatives "thought they might have been watching MSNBC by mistake."

Careful decision on anticoagulant use needed with patient’s history of bleedin

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a healthy 79-year-old with a question about the blood thinner Xarelto. I take it for occasional atrial fibrillation. I hear that it can be dangerous. My doctors don't seem worried, but I am. I have had rectal bleeding in the past, which wasn't serious but was scary. I can't take aspirin, so when I accidently took it in an over-the-counter cold medication, I threw up blood. Should I be worried about being on Xarelto? -- E.H.

SF’s Summer of Urine

How bad is the urine situation in San Francisco? This is not a joke: Monday night, a light pole corroded by urine collapsed and crashed onto a car, narrowly missing the driver. The smell is worse than I have known since I started working for The Chronicle in 1992. It hits your nose on the BART escalator before you reach Market Street. That sour smell can bake for blocks where street people sleep wrapped in dirty blankets. I talked to Mayor Ed Lee and rode around with police to find out what can be done to clean up San Francisco.

Stop buying backyard bred puppies

DEAR DIDI: My husband and I have decided to get a German Shepherd puppy. Although adopting a rescue has its rewards we also feel that purebred puppies need homes. We have specific goals in mind for our potential new fur baby so raising from puppyhood seems the best way to insure we can do those things with him or her. We have not purchased a puppy from a breeder in 25 years and with the Internet and current popularity of the German Shepherd (compared to their reputation in the 70s) we are overwhelmed. Can you shed some light on the ...

The ‘no shame’ debate

No one has a later term abortion because she's changed her mind about having a baby. Doctors in almost all states won't perform them for that reason; and, by the way, what kind of beasts do you think women are? Late-term abortions are tragedies, often a last resort because much-wanted babies, or their mothers, develop conditions not consistent with life.
