Is Libertarian ticket serious?

Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson, the former New Mexico governor, and his running mate, Bill Weld, a former Massachusetts governor, bill themselves as the "credible alternative to ClinTrump." The two former GOP governors, who won re-election in bluish states, have a bounce in their step on the campaign trail. "Give us one term, America, and if after four years you decide you don't like peace, prosperity and freedom, you can always vote a Trump or a Hillary back into office again," Johnson mugs in a campaign video.

Who’s your mommy?

Hillary Clinton's advantage going into the final evening of the Democratic National Convention was her nonstop determination. The former first lady and secretary of state never gave up on her bid to become the first female American president. Unlike Donald Trump, she didn't just stumble into the nomination. She reached the spotlight through "steady leadership" - a euphemism for plodding on after personal scandal on an epic scale and a painful election loss in 2008.

She can repent in prison

"If the word 'Manson' was not attached to Leslie, she would have been out 20 years ago," attorney Richard Pfeiffer told me about his client, convicted Manson "family" killer Leslie Van Houten, who is serving a life sentence for her role in two 1969 murders. On Friday, Gov. Jerry Brown reversed a parole board recommendation to parole Van Houten, 66, because she is remorseful, has accepted responsibility for her crimes and no longer poses a danger to society. "As our Supreme Court has acknowledged," Brown wrote, "in rare circumstances a crime is so atrocious that it provides evidence of current ...

Bell’s palsy a possible side effect of having had chickenpox

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 55. I was having numbness on the left side of my face, and my left eyelid started to droop. I thought I was having a stroke. I went to the hospital, and they told me this is Bell's palsy. I asked where it came from and the doctor asked if I ever had chickenpox. I told him I had, and he said this is just another consequence, like shingles. No one in my house was aware of this. Can I also get shingles along with this? Now they say my face could clear up ...
