Big drop in bone density might require meds

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 68-year-old woman diagnosed with osteopenia. My hip T-score is -2.3, and lumbar spine T-score is -1.6. My doctor suggested medication, but I am concerned about side effects.

Three years ago, my scores were -1.3 and -0.1, so this seems a significant change. Also, what medication is best to try? -- N.M.

Dogs need a social life

When I was kid we had a big German Shepard named Duke. He was great dog who was very friendly and always happy. He loved hanging out in the backyard, playing, jumping in water and doing all sorts of cool doggie things. As I remember it, Duke was just one easy going, awesome dog.

Cruz, my new best friend

I could vote for Ted Cruz in the California primary, I realized as I learned the senator from Texas won not only his home state on Super Tuesday but also Oklahoma. Cruz also beat Donald Trump in the Iowa caucuses and claimed the top spot in the Alaska caucuses Tuesday.

They don’t tell women how to vote

I didn't look up to Wonder Woman or Lara Croft as a child: I had women like Gloria Steinem. I was the type of girl who cut my dolls' hair short, insisted girls could do anything boys could, and invented stories where brave female protagonists always outsmarted the bad guys.

Common Core ended Bush Dynasty

As Republicans try to make sense of Donald Trump's huge victory in the South Carolina primary, the big news is the shellacking of Jeb Bush in a state that voted four times for a George Bush for president. Trump defeated Bush by the overwhelming margin of 4-to-1 (33 percent to 8 percent).

Trashing of Bill’s accusers

Hillary Clinton has never been asked whether she verbally intimidated alleged rape survivor Juanita Broaddrick. Nor has Clinton been asked whether she spearheaded the so-called "nuts and sluts" strategy to silence and intimidate women who alleged affairs with or sexual abuse by Bill Clinton.

SF puts sanctuary before funding

Ever since Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez shot and killed Kate Steinle on a warm July evening as she strolled along Pier 14 with her father, San Francisco's Sanctuary City policy has enraged swaths of the rest of America. Lopez-Sanchez, you see, had been convicted of multiple felonies and deported five times. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would have deported the Mexican national if he had not been handed over to the San Francisco Sheriff's Office on a decades-old marijuana charge.
