POOPING ON WALKS

DEAR DIDI: I take my dog for a nice walk each morning while the temperatures are still cool. The other morning he was doing his business and I stood ready with poop bag in hand. However, the owner of that yard came rushing out yelling at me. I showed her my poop bag and said I was going to pick it up but she was upset that I even allowed my dog to poop and pee at all! I was a defensive mom at that point and will never walk down that street again. It did get me wondering what ...

California experiencing crime wave less than year after election

"The Safe Neighborhoods and Schools Act" isn't living up to its promise. Also known as Proposition 47, the California ballot initiative, which was approved in November 2014 with 60 percent of the vote, downgraded drug possession and many property crimes from a felony to a misdemeanor. Proponents argued that lesser punishment for low-level offenders would enhance public safety. San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon was the rare prosecutor who pushed for its approval. He told the San Francisco Chronicle, "What we have been doing hasn't worked, frankly."

Carly as President?

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 ...
