It’s a slow process to come off steroids

DEAR DR. ROACH: I was diagnosed with polymyalgia rheumatica about five years ago, and I took prednisone for about a year. I was fine until last March, when it flared up again, with a vengeance. Since that time, I've gradually reduced the dosage from 10 mg down to 5 mg, as my rheumatologist recommends. However, I have had big problems with side effects -- thin skin, extreme arm and leg bruising, and swelling of the feet and ankles. I would like to get off prednisone completely. -- C.B.

Democrats and the Nazi card

Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the odds-on favorite to become the Democratic National Committee's chairman, had a long association with the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam. He compared then-President George W. Bush and 9/11 to Adolf Hitler and the destruction of the Reichstag, the German parliament building: "9/11 is the juggernaut in American history and it allows ... it's almost like, you know, the Reichstag fire," Ellison said. "After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader of that country (Hitler) in a position where he could basically have authority to do ...

The hilarious ‘Hamilton’ hubbub

Vice President-elect Mike Pence was in New York during the transition, and he took his family to Broadway to see "Hamilton," the hot hip-hop Founding Fathers musical that people are overpaying to see. What resulted wasn't exactly surprising - rude and obnoxious, but not surprising.

Thoughts on Thanksgiving

Some Thanksgivings are easy. When my children were younger, I just could not believe how lucky I was: two beautiful children, kinehora (in Jewish, that means "Keep the evil eye away"). We invited friends and loaded the table with food; I think I even shed a few tears of pure joy. If you are going to have that kind of Thanksgiving, then all I can say is that I am green with envy. Really. I don't covet money or things, but that kind of joy - the kind that has eluded me for so many years - of that I am ...

Academics stunned by Trump’s win … and that’s a bad thing

A friend of mine recently told me about a troubling experience his daughter had at a California community college. She had to endure a political rant from one of her professors, who compared Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler and claimed Trump's election was worse than 9/11.

The cracked crystal ball of liberal celebrities

Before the shock of President Donald Trump wears off, let's remember to tip our hats to Tinseltown. What would we do without it? The self-absorbed Beautiful People of the town called on America to become as enlightened as they by supporting Hillary Clinton. They proudly donned their "I'm With Her" buttons.

‘Sanctuary’ means career criminals can run and hide

Donald Trump understood something that many Washington insiders missed. Many Americans and some naturalized citizens bristle at elected officials constantly defending the rights of non-Americans to migrate here illegally - and to be rewarded for breaking the law with a path to citizenship. Toward that end, and in deference to his campaign promises, Trump seems primed to deport undocumented immigrants and withhold some federal funds from sanctuary cities like San Francisco.

Our president-elect

No one is more supportive of young people involved in politics than I am. Year after year, I not only teach my own students but also speak at colleges and universities, eschewing political correctness but urging, begging even, for the students to passionately advocate the beliefs they hold and to become active participants in our democracy.
