Our toxic failure

Now that it's already been phased out, the world can agree that a chemical used in Teflon - the famous coating on nonstick pots and pans - was toxic.

David Bowie, icon or abuser?

When David Bowie died after a very private fight with liver cancer, obituary writers churned out words like "icon" and "legend" and "subversive." Despite a life of very fluid explorations of musicality and sexuality and spirituality, the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano celebrated Bowie as "never banal," displaying an "artistic rigor" which seemed to contradict the sexually "ambiguous image" he presented to "attract the attention of the media."

What Is Ldl Cholesterol?

DEAR DR. ROACH: I recently saw an article about how higher cholesterol levels (especially LDL) actually contribute to a longer life. I think that means if you don't have high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. I went online, and there are a few articles about this. Since I and some of my offspring have genetic high cholesterol (high HDL, and mine is borderline high LDL), I wonder what you think of these articles and studies. The article I read also says that very low LDL levels contribute to a shorter lifespan and that statins, as much as they are prescribed ...

GOP family values

God help me. I have come to appreciate why some Republican voters like Donald Trump. It's because he embodies New York in all its ostentation and swagger. When punched, he punches back. He owns his anger. He looks as if he is having a blast. At Thursday night's Fox Business Network GOP debate, Trump readily admitted that he had begun to question whether rival Sen. Ted Cruz is a "natural born" citizen because Cruz was closing in on Trump in Iowa polls. He's shameless, yet you cannot help but admire someone who butts heads with the way ...

Lights shining brightly at SSA

About a month ago, I wrote a column about possible declining service at the Social Security Administration. I pointed out that I get frequent emails from readers who complain about overflowing waiting rooms, generally unpleasant surroundings, and overall poor service following a visit to the Social Security office. And I get many more emails complaining about the service, or rather lack of good service, provided at SSA's 800 number.

LIP SERVICE

There are two ways to talk up bipartisanship. You can give the notion lip service. You can lament its loss in modern politics. You can lay the blame of partisan rancor on the times and not at your own clay feet. You can say, "It's one of the few regrets of my presidency - that the rancor and suspicion between the parties has gotten worse instead of better," as President Barack Obama shared in his State of the Union address Tuesday.
