$1 BILLION PAY RAISE

If Donald Trump's gravity-defying ascendancy has validated anything, it is that for Middle America, jobs and economic security are still the dominant issue. Republicans have talked up tax reform, regulatory relief and fiscal restraint -- and those are all critical to growth.

The best exercise is the one you’ll keep doing

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am an overweight 68-year-old woman who wants to exercise. I would like to know what type of exercise I can do to help me lose weight. I am allergic to the chemicals in pools, so I cannot swim. Each knee has had a total replacement, leaving me with a limited range of motion, making it impossible to bend my knee enough to ride a bike. I am not sure what I can do. I was hoping you could help me with that. I can walk half a mile without losing my breath. I live on the ...

About toenails on dogs

DEAR DIDI: I know where my greyhound, Sasha, is at all times. Her nails echo through the house on my hardwood floors. I am terrified to trim them and hurt her. Is it bad in some way for her if I don't trim them? -curious mom

Would The Donald govern like Arnold?

They're both iconic figures in American culture who are known by their first names. California's former governor is Arnold. The GOP presidential front-runner is The Donald. We Californians who lived through Arnold's two terms in the governor's office have watched The Donald's presidential campaign unfold with a sense of deja vu.

Why superdelegates count

Every time I see a tally of the delegate race that excludes so-called "superdelegates," I have to laugh. "Of course they count," I want to scream at The New York Times, which otherwise offers a flawless tally. That's precisely why I, and a minority of others, fought so hard against the introduction of superdelegates. Now I've been fortunate to live long enough to finally see them do what they are supposed to: Keep the party from driving off a cliff. And yet, no one wants to count them. What did we do wrong?

TRUMP VS. DEMOS

In a recent interview with Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump, CNN's Jake Tapper said, "I would just ask, as a fellow American, if you could consider whether or not dialing down the temperature - trying to bring down the temperature - might be a healthier thing both for your campaign and for the nation at large." And PBS' Tavis Smiley - who once said Ronald Reagan "tortured" blacks - calls Trump a "religious and racial arsonist."

WHAT ABOUT FARRAKHAM?

Former Grand Wizard of the KKK David Duke recently made positive comments about Republican front-runner Donald Trump. He did not endorse Trump's candidacy. But it came close enough for Trump's critics -within and without his party -- to hammer him for failing to issue an immediate and sufficiently full-throated denunciation of Duke.

OBAMA TO GOP

Washington, D.C., should host an Olympics for finger-pointing. There would be no shortage of accomplished practitioners. Start with President Barack Obama, who, in introducing Judge Merrick Garland as his choice to replace Justice Antonin Scalia on the big bench, asked the Senate "to give him a fair hearing and then an up-or-down vote." He told senators: "If you don't, then it will not only be an abdication of the Senate's constitutional duty, it will indicate a process for nominating and confirming judges that is beyond repair. It will mean everything is subject to the most partisan of ...
