Very real political football

Activists at the University of Missouri just won themselves a trophy Monday. After weeks of protests against the president of the University of Missouri System, Tim Wolfe - and, most importantly, after the Mizzou football team threatened to boycott games until Wolfe quit - the administrator caved. "It is my belief we stopped listening to each other. We have to respect each other enough to stop yelling at each other and start listening and quit intimidating each other," said the clearly intimidated Wolfe.

Liberals losing culture wars?

The libertine left has done a lot of boasting over the last several years about the inevitability of History vanquishing every corner of American social conservatism.

For a few, cholesterol is naturally high

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 68-year-old female with a more-than-40-year history of extremely high cholesterol (350-411 total). I have not been able to tolerate any kind of statin drug, even if I take CoQ10 with it. Welchol and Zetia had side effects that I couldn't tolerate either. I am not diabetic, and my blood pressure is generally around 120/80. My total cholesterol is 354, with HDL at 60, triglycerides at 133 and LDL at 269.

We need more children

It made front-page headlines around the world when China's Communist Party announced the end of its notorious one-child policy. Imposed by Chinese dictator Deng Xiaoping in the late 1970s, the one-child limit has been ruthlessly enforced with forced abortion, infanticide, sterilization, and heavy fines on families that dared to have a second child.

Long-overdue vigilance

The competing Republicans presidential campaigns had a meeting on Nov. 1 to discuss their concerns with how the Republican National Committee had planned debates with the media. That's a healthy development, considering the CNBC debate, in which liberal journalists asked one too many deliberately snide and hostile "gotcha" questions attacking the GOP candidates, and the candidates exploded in anger.

Clinton plays gender card

Here's the setup. Hillary Clinton has been pointing out that her opponent Bernie Sanders, the darling of the left, has actually opposed gun control. I've been pointing that same fact out to folks for some time, and it's quite compelling. It's clearly had an effect on polls.

Familial mediterranean fever is genetic condition

DEAR DR. ROACH: After an intestinal virus, I ended up in the hospital with a sed rate of 110 and a high white blood count. I was feeling crippled with severe joint pain and was diagnosed with reactive arthritis. I was discharged with steroids and colchicine. I'm still taking the colchicine because my doctor said I have familial Mediterranean fever, and the colchicine is helping. I am a full-blooded Italian. She also said I have the HLA-B27 antigen. Two months later, my sed rate is back to normal, but I'll be taking colchicine for another month and then ...
