Hillary won. America lost.

The narrative following Hillary's testimony at Congress' recent Benghazi hearing is clear: Hillary won. She (for the most part) calmly answered all the questions. She nodded approvingly when the Democrats on the committee accused Republicans of engaging in a partisan witch-hunt.

Reactive blood pressure causes treatment confusion

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am sensitive to blood pressure machines. Whether on my wrist, arm or leg, they hurt, and my blood pressure goes up. This has resulted recently in a dentist not wishing to extract a tooth because her machine measured my pressure at 190/98. A few years ago, prior to minor surgery, the machine got a similar result. They tried to inject me with something to bring it down, and it went down alarmingly low. During visits to my primary-care physician, my pressure is consistently around 138/82. An old-fashioned cuff is used, and is gently and ...

Now my neighbors two grown children bring their dogs to run daily in their parent's non fenced in yard. One dog is aggressive & wants to fence fight! The other just runs on the outside of my fences barking and has caused my dogs to ...

Overreaching on PC

Is there such a thing as being too politically correct in San Francisco? Yes - but a public official has to overreach drastically to hit that mark. Everett Middle School principal Lena Van Haren did just that when she chose to withhold the results of her school's Oct. 9 student council election because students had elected too many white kids. "It's not OK for a school that is really, really diverse to have the student representatives majority white," Van Haren told the San Francisco Chronicle's Jill Tucker as her decision made national news. On Monday, Van Haren finally ...
