Fox News covers ‘inconvenient’ rape

On March 16, a 14-year-old girl was allegedly pushed into a boys' bathroom at Rockville High School in Maryland and raped by two other students during school hours. Police arrested two freshmen who recently arrived from Central America, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez and 17-year-old Jose Montano. Sanchez, a Guatemalan, has a pending "alien removal" case against him. Montano, from El Salvador, is a minor, so his immigration status was not released.

Why does do wipe his paws after going potty?

Dear Didi: We lost our 11 year old GoldenDoodle, Ginger, a month ago. She was absolutely the most perfect dog ever and we miss her horribly. To fill that hole in our hearts we just brought in a new Doodle puppy. His name is Cooper and he is 10 weeks old. He has an interesting habit we would like more information about. He always "wipes his paws" on the grass after going to the bathroom. Why is he doing this and should we do anything about it? -Doodle Parents in Stockton

President Trump finds freedom lacks loyalty

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump failed to persuade enough House Republicans to vote for his American Health Care Act, leading to its withdrawal from the House floor on Friday. How did the effort to pass a replacement for Obamacare go wrong? Let me count the ways.

Wildflower adventures

I was chatting with my friend Old Joe this morning and remarked that for the next month or two, California's wildflowers will be putting on a magnificent show for all of us to enjoy. The price of admission is a tankful of gas and some wear & tear on your boots. While the high Sierras get all the attention of trout fishers, skiers, and hunters, the most prolific wildflowers are actually a little lower down the mountain. I especially enjoy the profusion & variety of the wildflowers in the foothills at about the 1,500 foot to 2,500 foot elevation ...

Making sense of mixed connective tissue disease

DEAR DR. ROACH: One rheumatologist diagnosed me with unspecified mixed connective tissue disease and Raynaud's syndrome. I was put on Plaquenil, which caused some hair loss and thinning. I got a second opinion from another rheumatologist, who said that based on my bloodwork, I do not have Raynaud's or mixed connective tissue disease. Is it possible that mixed connective tissue disease goes into remission? Should I get a third opinion? -- C.T.

The powerless president

Donald Trump is learning a lesson he should have known during the campaign. Being president is not like being the host of "Celebrity Apprentice" or a billionaire boss. Not everyone works for you. They don't all run around saying that you're a genius, doing whatever you tell them, literally treating you like a king. Being president is nothing like being a king.

Essential thrombocythemia comes with bleeding risk

DEAR DR. ROACH: Recently, I was diagnosed with essential thrombocythemia. The recommended treatment is the drug hydroxyurea because I turned 60 this past year and have a mutation in the JAK 2 gene. If I had not turned 60, the recommended treatment would be aspirin alone. Currently, I am taking the recommended 81-mg aspirin dose daily. I have a very healthy lifestyle: I'm an avid runner, with workouts twice a week at the gym, and I have no history of blood clots, etc. I have no symptoms at this time. I've been getting monthly blood draws to monitor ...
