Tonsil stones explained

DEAR DR. ROACH: Could you share some information about tonsil stones? I had never heard of them until I took my 15-year-old granddaughter to the doctor for a sore throat and she was shown one. It stayed there for about four days until it came out. -- B.H.

Push in Sacramento to let felons vote in jail

California lawmakers seem intent on making Sacramento the place where reasonable reforms, much like runaway trains, jump the tracks. In that no-speed-limit spirit Tuesday, the California Assembly voted 41-37 to allow convicted felons to vote in jail. (Yes, you read that correctly.) If Assembly Bill 2466 becomes law, the American Civil Liberties Union estimates that 50,000 adults will be able to vote behind bars. The state doesn't trust these people on the streets, but they are welcome in the voting booth.

On income ‘inequality’

Is there a more brain-dead concept than to empower the government to fight "income inequality"? What sane, normal, rational human being thinks that human talent, drive, interests and opportunity can - or should - result in equal outcomes?

California counts for nothing

I got my absentee ballot in the mail, which reminded me: We have an election next Tuesday. The excitement is hard to bear. Oh, wait. There is no excitement. The ballot is still sitting in the pile on the kitchen table. I intend to fill it out because that's what good citizens should do - not because I even remotely think it will matter.

Hillary Clinton’s emails: She’s lying in plain sight

Speaking in San Francisco Thursday, Hillary Clinton told supporters that Donald Trump is not fit to be president. "He roots for himself," the former Secretary of State proclaimed, "and that's the type of person who should not be president of the United States." By that standard, Clinton herself has no business running to win the White House.

Hey, Sanders supporters: All roads lead to Venezuela

When socialist Hugo Chavez became president of Venezuela after the 1998 election, he promised a path he described as "revolutionary," the same word Bernie Sanders uses for his "movement" to fight "income inequality."

Bernie needs to do the math

Math was actually my best subject, until seventh grade, when I was the only girl on the math team: As if it were on the intercom, I heard loud and clear that girls weren't supposed to be good at math. But today I'm still proficient enough to figure out how to add up to 2,383, the number of delegates you need to win the Democratic nomination. And Hillary Clinton already has 2,305.

Failed Republicans want to rewrite the Constitution

Did you ever wonder why unsuccessful candidates merely "suspend" their campaigns after losing a key primary instead of terminating them? Surely all those candidates know that it's impossible to restart a presidential campaign once it's been suspended. In the famous words of Theodore Roosevelt's daughter Alice Longworth, "You can't make a souffle rise twice."

Ferguson Effect by the Bay

"It's as hard right now to be a cop maybe as it's ever been," San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr to The Chronicle Editorial Board Tuesday. At the time, Suhr was resisting calls demanding that he resign. Five local protesters had given up their hunger strike to force his departure to atone for officer-involved shootings of four minority men in the previous two years. Four supervisors had jumped onto that bandwagon, but Suhr enjoyed Mayor Ed Lee's support. Until Thursday, that is, when a San Francisco cop shot and killed Jessica Williams, 29, an unarmed auto theft ...
