Adulthood in the nanny state

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors is flirting with the idea of letting 16- and 17-year-olds vote in local elections. Last year, Supervisor John Avalos floated the notion, but it didn't go anywhere. But this is an election year - and in election years, noxious proposals carry extra currency. So expect City Hall to pass the measure and put it on the ballot. Then expect voters to exercise better judgment and reject the measure.

Transgender ‘fact’ & fantasy

The liberal opinion site that calls itself PolitiFact insists it's just a fact-checking website. When choosing to assess whether a politician's claim is true or false, their "About Us" page says they ask: "Is the statement rooted in a fact that is verifiable? We don't check opinions, and we recognize that in the world of speechmaking and political rhetoric, there is license for hyperbole."

It’s panic time on the right

When Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas announced Tuesday night, after losing Indiana, that he was suspending his presidential primary campaign, it was not a fatal blow to the stop-Trump movement. Many Republicans who oppose Donald Trump - because he's a self-serving, unreliable conservative likely to alienate huge swaths of the American electorate - weren't particularly strong on Cruz, a staunch conservative but also a craven opportunist who hurt the GOP brand with such kamikaze stunts as his push to shut down the government in a bound-to-fail (and it did) bid to defund Obamacare.

Donald Trump crosses a border

Donald Trump had to squeeze through a hole in a fence to speak at the California Republican Convention on Friday. He said it felt like "crossing the border." Meanwhile, his supporters swaggered into the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport banquet hall as if they owned the place. Maybe they know something I don't, I shuddered.

How Trump turned Cruz into the establishment candidate

Donald Trump's landslide victory in the New York GOP primary was a game-changer. It ended his Wisconsin slump and set the stage for an across-the-board sweep next Tuesday in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

“Adrenal fatigue” not always used accurately

DEAR DR. ROACH: I had apoplexy, a ruptured pituitary tumor, developed panhypopituitarism, then adrenal insufficiency. I am doing fairly well with cortisol replacement, thyroid supplement and oral diabetic medicine. My problem is exhaustion that comes on very easily. I have other ailments to blame, too -- chronic pain from fibromyalgia and tendinitis. I am 67. I am still able to work. Is adrenal fatigue a real issue, and if so, what can be done about it? -- S.M.

Dogs that bite are serious liability issue

DEAR DIDI: I was out bicycling when a lady walking her dog began screaming behind me. I glanced down in time to notice a wiener dog at my feet. It actually managed to jump up and bite my foot! I pedaled faster and sped away leaving the woman to retrieve her unruly dog. I don't know who she is or where she lives. When I got home I discovered the dog left three puncture wounds around my Achilles tendon. It has hurt for a week but wasn't bad enough to see a doctor. I keep thinking….if this ...

The lesser of the evils?

It's pretty darn depressing when political writers are essentially writing off the 2016 election as a choice between the lesser of two evils - seven months in advance of the election. It's one thing when, after months of negative ads, we shake our heads in disgust, but we haven't even really started yet.

Is college too pricey? Wait till it’s made ‘free’

As he panders for the youth vote, Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders promises free tuition at public colleges and universities because, he says, "a college degree is the new high school diploma." Rival Hillary Clinton supports President Barack Obama's plan to make community college tuition-free - that is, publicly funded. Beware, America: Imagine how expensive college tuition will be if Democrats somehow manage to make more of it "free." As for value, if Sanders has his way, you can expect the college degree to be the new high school diploma.

ESPN fires Schilling: What about liberal offenders?

ESPN fired baseball analyst and former All-Star Curt Schilling for mocking the debate about the North Carolina public facilities law. On his Facebook page, Schilling posted a meme (a graphic) with the picture of an aged and overweight man dressed in just enough women's clothing to prevent flagrant violation of public exposure laws. The photo caption read: "Let him in to the restroom with your daughter or else you're a narrow-minded, judgmental, unloving, racist bigot who needs to die!" Under the meme, Schilling wrote: "A man is a man no matter what they call themselves. I don't ...

College students do not get their money’s worth

When I worked my way through college in the 1940s, tuition was $200 to $250 a year. My children's tuition was $2,000 to $2,500 a year, and my grandchildren's college education each cost $20,000 to $40,000 a year for tuition alone.
