Co-branding America’s wonders

While Americans celebrate the 100th anniversary of our National Park Service, America's so-called "leaders" are aggressively converting these jewels of the common good into just another corporate cash cow.

The ‘no shame’ debate

No one has a later term abortion because she's changed her mind about having a baby. Doctors in almost all states won't perform them for that reason; and, by the way, what kind of beasts do you think women are? Late-term abortions are tragedies, often a last resort because much-wanted babies, or their mothers, develop conditions not consistent with life.

No friend to lions

More than 200,000 people have signed a petition asking the White House to cooperate with efforts to "extradite Walter Palmer" - the Minneapolis-area dentist who killed Cecil the lion - "promptly at the Zimbabwe government's request." According to reports, Palmer and/or his hunting guides lured the beloved lion out of a game reserve. Palmer then shot Cecil with a crossbow; the wounded lion lived for another 40 hours before he was dispatched with a bullet.

Reader finds marital status query intrusive

DEAR DR. ROACH: I recently visited an ophthalmologist. Prior to the consultation, his staff member went over a form with me, including my marital status -- single, married, divorced, widowed, partnered, etc. I've gotten questions like this in a number of doctors' offices, and it's on a form I've seen a number of times. I can understand that a gynecologist, for example, might need to know whether a patient had given birth and whether a patient is sexually active. But the question about marital status doesn't elicit that information. And why would an ophthalmologist need that information ...

The plot to destroy Nixon

In his new biography "Being Nixon: A Man Divided," Evan Thomas concedes a point. Richard Nixon, he writes, "was not paranoid; the press and the 'Georgetown set' really were out to get him."

The sanctuary scandal

Donald Trump's unorthodox campaign has performed a public service by shining the national spotlight on the problem of "sanctuary cities," which shelter illegal aliens from deportation. The tragedy of Kate Steinle, who died in the arms of her father after being shot by an illegal alien, is that her death was preventable, yet officials have defiantly defended their sanctuary policies.

Flogging the flag

When South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley signed a bill to boot the Confederate flag from State House grounds earlier this month, it was a beautiful moment - if decades late. State lawmakers finally acted out of revulsion from images of a confessed shooter posing with the Civil War relic before he shot to death nine African-American church parishioners June 17. Flag apologists lost their stomach for defending the banner as an emblem of states' rights.

On Obama’s watch

Ninety-five percent of black voters in 2008 voted for then-Sen. Barack Obama. Surely a "progressive" black president would care about, empathize with and understand black America in a way no other president ever has or could, right? Exit polls from Pew Research show that 63 percent of all voters - and 65 percent of Obama voters - cited the economy as the number one reason they voted for him. Iraq was a distant second at 10 percent. Even for black Obama voters, "It's the economy, stupid."
