Dark horse Paul Ryan

As Republicans prepare to cast their first presidential ballots in Iowa and New Hampshire, the field remains dominated by "outsider" candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, while establishment favorites Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, John Kasich and Marco Rubio have been unable to advance to the finals. Will the Republican kingmakers and consultants who picked every nominee since Reagan step aside to let the grassroots, also known as the "base," work its will this year?

Democrats’ debate notes

Fighting off the temptation to fall asleep during the most recent Democratic - and Donald Trump-less -debate, I wrote these thoughts, observations and questions I hoped would be asked but were not. I end with my opinion about who won the debate - and who lost. No fair cheating and going right to the end.

David Bowie, icon or abuser?

When David Bowie died after a very private fight with liver cancer, obituary writers churned out words like "icon" and "legend" and "subversive." Despite a life of very fluid explorations of musicality and sexuality and spirituality, the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano celebrated Bowie as "never banal," displaying an "artistic rigor" which seemed to contradict the sexually "ambiguous image" he presented to "attract the attention of the media."

What Is Ldl Cholesterol?

DEAR DR. ROACH: I recently saw an article about how higher cholesterol levels (especially LDL) actually contribute to a longer life. I think that means if you don't have high blood pressure, diabetes, etc. I went online, and there are a few articles about this. Since I and some of my offspring have genetic high cholesterol (high HDL, and mine is borderline high LDL), I wonder what you think of these articles and studies. The article I read also says that very low LDL levels contribute to a shorter lifespan and that statins, as much as they are prescribed ...

GOP family values

God help me. I have come to appreciate why some Republican voters like Donald Trump. It's because he embodies New York in all its ostentation and swagger. When punched, he punches back. He owns his anger. He looks as if he is having a blast. At Thursday night's Fox Business Network GOP debate, Trump readily admitted that he had begun to question whether rival Sen. Ted Cruz is a "natural born" citizen because Cruz was closing in on Trump in Iowa polls. He's shameless, yet you cannot help but admire someone who butts heads with the way ...
