Gender-fluid Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America, or BSA, used to be derided as a "traditional, values-based" organization, whose oath spoke of a "duty to God" and whose law insisted the Scouts be "reverent." Now the BSA worships something else: corporate donations. It should have been expected after it folded on homosexual Scouts and then on homosexual scoutmasters.

2017: The year protests by conservatives became news

It shouldn't be considered remarkable that all three major broadcast networks offered a news story on the tens of thousands who came for the 2017 March for Life. But it is. Between the morning and evening shows, the networks gave it almost 22 minutes of airtime altogether. To illustrate how shocking that number is, consider that last year, ABC gave the march 35 seconds of coverage. NBC ignored it altogether. Ditto for CBS.

Under President Trump, the media rediscovers its purpose

Only hours into his new job, White House press secretary Sean Spicer attacked the media for what he called "dishonesty" and "deliberately false reporting." He specifically challenged the reporting that said President Donald Trump's inauguration had a smaller audience than the inaugurations of President Barack Obama and that Trump removed the bust of Martin Luther King Jr. from the Oval Office.

She could be eligible for parole in five years.

Getting dogs to change their ‘business’ habits

Dear Didi: My husband and I adopted a 4 year old dog from the animal shelter and we named him Max. He is very sweet and calm. He has one issue, however, that is putting a kink in our lifestyle. He will NOT, under any circumstances do his business in the backyard. We have to take him for walks three times a day to get him to "go". Is there any hope? -getting in our steps in Manteca

And then I cried

I made it through election night, and the morning after, and the endless portmortems. I kept reminding myself of what Hillary Clinton said at the final debate about respecting the outcome of the election. I listened to a lot of music. When, late at night, I would finally break down and read about the endless conflicts of interest or the appointees committed to destroying the departments they hope to run, I would remind myself that there just might be two Republican Senators who would not necessarily say "How high?" when the new president said, "Jump," and even that President Donald ...
