CARLY FIORINA

SIMI VALLEY - Who is this Carly Fiorina? In the press filing center at the CNN Republican debate, journalists from around the country were asking reporter Carla Marinucci and me because we covered the former Hewlett-Packard CEO for the San Francisco Chronicle in 2010 when she ran for the U.S. Senate against California Democrat Barbara Boxer - and failed spectacularly by 1 million votes. Yet here she is, winning the first two GOP primary debates and burning past veteran politicians who have won brutal elections in big states. Can she actually win? And what's her special sauce?

Full retirement age for widows

About a month ago, I wrote a column in which I explained how "full retirement age" (the age at which a person can claim 100 percent of his or her Social Security retirement benefits) is going up.

Purging America’s heroes

With that kumbayah moment at the Capitol in South Carolina, when the Battle Flag of the Confederacy was lowered forever to the cheers and tears of all, a purgation of the detestable relics of evil that permeate American public life began.

Go-to guy for corporate moochers

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker says he should be America's next president because he's a proven budget whacker. And yes, by golly, he's dressed down teachers, slashed funding for higher education, busted unions, and gone after welfare recipients.

Trump is Herbert Hoover

Here's a historical fact that Donald Trump, and many voters attracted to him, may not know: The last American president who was a trade protectionist was Republican Herbert Hoover. Obviously that economic strategy didn't turn out so well - either for the nation or the GOP.

My brush with Elon Musk

About five years ago, a close friend of mine and I had an idea for a television news program. As luck would have it, my friend had gone to high school with a guy who, at the time, just happened to be the president of NBC. We arranged to have drinks at a fancy hotel bar in Washington, just the three of us, to talk about the idea.

Was case of ‘bird lung’ an allergy or infection?

DEAR DR. ROACH: I was a very active, healthy, young 68-year-old until March, when I was hospitalized for two weeks for bilateral pneumonia. I was told by the doctors at the hospital that it would take four to six weeks to get my health back. However, I experienced shortness of breath and bouts of coughing for months, and insisted on seeing a specialist three weeks ago. A CT scan and bronchoscopy showed symptoms typical of bird lung. We had a cockatiel for 17 years!

Newsom is no Kim Davis

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee complained on ABC's "This Week" that both Gavin Newsom and Kim Davis broke marriage laws but there's a double standard. The GOP presidential hopeful put it this way: "You've got Democrats who ignored the law when it was the law to have traditional marriage. Gavin Newsom, in San Francisco as mayor, performed same-sex weddings even though it was illegal. Did he ever get put in jail? He most certainly did not."

The Lesson of Kim Davis

Raising her arms in a sign of victory, Kim Davis - the now-famous Kentucky clerk who was jailed for contempt when she refused to obey a court order that she (and every clerk in the state) issue licenses to same-sex couples - was released from jail this week. Her freedom came not because the district judge concluded she was right, but because Davis' office deputies were in fact granting licenses consistent with the court order in her absence.

Chikungunya not likely cause of chronic diarrhea

DEAR DR. ROACH: In January 2014, I was bitten by a mosquito in the Caribbean and came down with the Chikungunya virus, which I still have. I took naproxen for about three months for the Chikungunya from April to July 2014. In August, I started having chronic diarrhea, which continues to this day. I have approximately three watery diarrhea attacks per day and must go to the bathroom ASAP three to four times over the period of an hour or two, with each attack.

Trump’s no outlier

There are those who would have you believe that Donald Trump is an aberration among Republican presidential contenders - the black sheep uncle who shows up half-drunk at family gatherings, insults the guests, scandalizes the women, and otherwise brings dishonor to the clan.
