Crude comedians of ‘the Resistance’ movement

TV comedy cannot be too harsh when directed at President Donald Trump. There are no limits, and CBS "Late Show" host Stephen Colbert has proven it. Under the rubric of corporate loyalty after the president cut an interview short with CBS "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson and mocked his show as "Deface the Nation," Colbert called the president a "prick-tator," and then suggested the only thing the president's mouth is good for is being a holster for the sexual organ of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Pseudomonas sinus infection tricky to eradicate

DEAR DR. ROACH: After years and years of excessive nasal congestion and postnasal drip that frequently affected my speech, I was diagnosed with a pseudomonas infection in my sinuses. I've had a balloon sinuplasty and two rounds of Cipro. My symptoms briefly improved after each treatment, but soon reverted to their prior condition. My ear, nose and throat doctor has advised that I have three options: live with it, get intravenous antibiotics or have surgery. None of these is appealing to me. I would like your opinion. -- P.G.

Trump fires away — again

Washington is buzzing with talk of Watergate. In a town nostalgic for the days when reporters didn't run in packs and Republicans and Democrats would raise a pint together, many cannot resist the temptation to compare President Donald Trump's abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey to President Richard Nixon's 1973 Saturday Night Massacre, when a besieged executive fired his special prosecutor and his attorney general and deputy attorney general resigned in protest.

Distracted by the circus

I was about to get into it with my son about President Donald Trump's suggestion that Andrew Jackson, a slave owner who died in 1845, could have avoided the Civil War (as if there were a compromise to be had on the question of expanding slavery into the territories), when he quickly dismissed me by pointing out that no one cares.

Are there tests to determine dog intelligence?

Dear Didi: I have a 3 year old Doberman Pinscher named Bella. She is the smartest dog I have ever owned. I've never owned a Doberman before so I frequently wonder if it is the breed that is so much smarter or if Bella is just a unique individual specimen. Our kids are super into teaching Bella to search for treats and play hide 'n seek. Are there studies or tests that can be taken to learn about the intelligence of our Bella? -Parent of a Smart Kid in Stockton

Hypocrisy in the anti-Bill O’Reilly army over sexual harassment

Fox News took Bill O'Reilly off the air after a heavy campaign to fire him led by CNN's media unit and The New York Times. If all the charges of sexual harassment are true, his case is indefensible. That said, it's time for his media critics to stand down. They are guilty of rank hypocrisy.

In choice of blood thinner, does safety or convenience take precedence?

DEAR DR. ROACH: I was recently diagnosed with atrial fibrillation. I received excellent care, and the cardiac doctors recommended a blood thinner, with a clear preference for apixaban. The pluses of apixaban are no dietary restrictions related to the medication and no need for regular, frequent blood monitoring. I followed their advice and am now taking it. But I am increasingly concerned about the fact that there is no way to reverse damaging bleeding, as there is for warfarin users. The doctors have all told me not to fall, because the bleeding resulting from a fall most likely would lead ...
