DEAR DR. ROACH: Would you mind providing some guidelines for preventing eye strain? I'm a graduate student, so I spend a lot of time reading, both from computer screens and from books. I will always need to read to get things done, but I'd also like my eyes to last me my whole life. -- B.I.
The Wednesday morning murders of 24-year-old Roanoke TV reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward, 27, were a racist atrocity, a hate crime. Were they not white, they would be alive today.

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am an 81-year-old man in good health. I am 5 feet, 11 inches tall and now weigh 175 pounds after intentionally losing 15 pounds through a combination of diet and exercise.

Do you agree with his position? -- D.N.K.

While perhaps too early for Democratic elites to panic and begin bailing out on Hillary Clinton's campaign as a doomed vessel, they would be well advised not to miss any of the lifeboat drills.
Every time the president goes on vacation, roughly half the talking heads jump all over him.

DEAR DR. ROACH: I was successfully treated for H. pylori five years ago. I continue to have stomach pain, which has been diagnosed as gastritis. For the past three weeks, when I eat even a small amount of food, I feel extremely full and bloated for hours.
"If it weren't for me," Donald Trump told the Fox News moderators at the first Republican presidential debate, "you wouldn't even be talking about illegal immigration." The record-breaking audience of 24 million, which is 10 times Fox's usual nightly viewership, had to agree.
"Trump's immigration proposals are as dangerous as they are stunning," railed amnesty activist Frank Sharry.
In the 1960s, I attended the University of North Texas. It was a public school blessed with good teachers and an educational culture focused on enabling us students to become socially useful citizens. And it was affordable - with close-to-free tuition and a part-time job, I could get a good education, gain experience in everything from work to civic activism, graduate in four years, and obtain a debt-free start in life.
