Flogging the flag

When South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley signed a bill to boot the Confederate flag from State House grounds earlier this month, it was a beautiful moment - if decades late. State lawmakers finally acted out of revulsion from images of a confessed shooter posing with the Civil War relic before he shot to death nine African-American church parishioners June 17. Flag apologists lost their stomach for defending the banner as an emblem of states' rights.

On Obama’s watch

Ninety-five percent of black voters in 2008 voted for then-Sen. Barack Obama. Surely a "progressive" black president would care about, empathize with and understand black America in a way no other president ever has or could, right? Exit polls from Pew Research show that 63 percent of all voters - and 65 percent of Obama voters - cited the economy as the number one reason they voted for him. Iraq was a distant second at 10 percent. Even for black Obama voters, "It's the economy, stupid."

DEAR DR. ROACH: I'm a female, age 70, who is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 125 pounds. I have no problems with cholesterol, diabetes or blood pressure.

Seeking sanctuary sanity

July 1 was one of those evenings when you feel blessed to be in San Francisco, especially if you are strolling along Pier 14. But every reader knows what happened next: A bullet struck Kathryn Steinle, 32, as she walked arm in arm with her father. Neither knew what had happened; the shot killed a vibrant woman - for which an immigrant with seven felony convictions and five deportations has been charged. (Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez has pleaded not guilty.) On Tuesday, less than a month later, Jim Steinle found himself where he never thought he would be - testifying before the Senate ...

Laser lights & dogs

DEAR DIDI: I have an 8 month old German Shepherd. She has so much energy! We read your column faithfully each week and value your opinion. My son likes to play laser light with Sassy and she is nuts for the game. You are training our neighbor's dog and he mentioned to us that you warned him against playing laser with dogs. He has a black lab. Is it a breed thing or all dogs that shouldn't play laser lights? - Manteca Dog Mommy

Calcium sources differ, needs remain the same

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 64-year-old woman with a thin frame who was recently diagnosed with osteoporosis. In the past 10 years, my bone density has declined despite regular exercise, a diet high in dairy products and taking calcium carbonate supplements. My doctor prescribed Forteo injections for one year to hopefully improve my bone density, and then transitioned me to Prolia.

Wisconsin’s grocery dictators

Republicans may like to rail against big government. But here in Wisconsin - where conservative lawmakers just introduced a bill to dramatically restrict what people can buy with their own food stamps - Republicans want to cook up a new kind of nanny state.
