Concerns of Recurrent tias

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have a 69-year-old woman friend who has been having TIAs for over a year. She averages one a week. Doctors are puzzled. They last 15 to 20 minutes, with drooling and numbness on the left side. I am very worried about what is going to happen. Is this normal for an older person? Aren't TIAs a prelude to a major stroke? What do you think should be done? -- Anon.

TRUMP: THEY LIED

It's one thing to disagree with the decision to go to war in Iraq. That, believe it or not, was once a minority view. According to a Gallup poll taken in March 2003, the night after the Iraq war began, 76 percent supported President George W. Bush's decision. Two months after the invasion, a Gallup poll found 79 percent of Americans thought the war was justified - about half of those said, "The war will be justified regardless of whether (weapons of mass destruction) are found."

SUPREME COURTSHIP

Even before Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell released his before-the-corpse-is-cold statement suggesting that the next president should pick Justice Antonin Scalia's successor, it was clear the Republican Senate is not going to confirm whomever President Obama picks. There's too much at stake. A new Democratic justice would shift the balance of power on the big bench. Facing the same dynamics, Senate Democrats would not have approved a nominee put forward by George W. Bush in his last year.

Leave the Scalia chair vacant

It is a measure of the stature and the significance of Justice Antonin Scalia that, upon the news of his death at a hunting lodge in Texas, Washington was instantly caught up in an unseemly quarrel over who would succeed him.
