Obamacare can’t be ‘fixed’

The moment Republicans bought into the notion that Obamacare must not just be repealed but "replaced," Democrats won. Democrats argue that health care is a "right." Republicans claim they disagree, that nowhere in the Constitution does the federal government guarantee health care treatment or health care insurance. But Republicans' behavior suggests otherwise.

Optimism reigned in first Trumps address to Congress

The mark of great presidents is optimism -- visionary optimism and transformational optimism. During Tuesday night's remarkable speech before Congress, President Donald Trump was brimming with optimism from start to end. My guess is that his marvelous speech will imbue and inspire new optimism and confidence throughout the entire country.

What’s the truth behind cancer-causing properties of burnt starchy foods?

DEAR DR. ROACH: I have heard for a while now that the black stuff on burnt toast is carcinogenic. I don't eat it because it tastes bad, but now I hear that any browning on things like bread and potatoes could cause cancer. What is the evidence for these claims, and what do you recommend we do to address them in our daily lives? -- P.N.

Nervous over their dog’s black tongue

Dear Didi: We have a dog that we adopted from a shelter about 3 weeks ago. I am extremely concerned because he has a mostly black tongue. We thought it was kind of cute until someone at the pet store in town told us that it means he is a Chow Chow mix. I know Chows can have serious aggression issues. Are we in for a difficult time? -nervous in Manteca

Trump hits a home run

One after another, the pundits hailed President Trump's first address to a joint session of Congress as his finest speech, though the usual naysayers were quick to snarkily add that it was his only good speech. Yuk-yuk. Fox News Channel's Brit Hume, a serious analyst with, by his count, some 40 of these speeches under his belt, called Tuesday night's address one of the most riveting and unforgettable speeches he's ever heard. Hume said the general consensus was Trump "hit it out of the park."

The Oscars: The activism they left on the cutting room floor

Imagine the result, with hundreds of millions of people watching worldwide, if Hollywood turned its creative firepower on real problems. Instead, viewers watched wall-to-wall Trump-bashing. They should have spent less time bashing Trump and more time making the sure presenters got the correct envelopes. If so, the Oscar gaffe of the century - reading the wrong name for Best Picture - might have been avoided. Also, during the "In Memoriam" portion of the night, they put up picture of a very much alive producer instead of the costume designer who died last October. The broadcast's ratings were the second-lowest in Academy ...
