Landslide? Not so fast

So we have one candidate who definitely supports the Constitution and one who takes 24 hours to decide whether he does (tough one). We have one candidate who has stood up for women's rights in 115 nations and one who is credited with starting a national discussion about whether a nice way of saying hello to a woman is to grab her by the, well - it's a word that can mean "cat." (Look, he's the one running for president and saying these things, not me.) We've got one candidate who is supported by her base and ...

Just the facts, ma’am

We knew there could be a big October surprise before this bizarre and unpopular election finally came to an end. But who knew it would come from emails found on a device used by former Rep. Anthony Weiner, which was confiscated by the FBI after he sexted an underage woman - an act that cost him his job, his income and his marriage?

Blame? Try GOP in Congress

Yes, I share the pain; I am outraged! I am a military father after all and I would be extremely upset if my son were in the same unfair circumstances as Capt. Chris Van Meter, the Manteca hero recently mentioned in the Manteca Bulletin. So I want to extend my most sincere gratitude to him for his service to our country and to let him know he is not alone; we Mantecans and the entire country is behind him.

Silicon Valley’s nasty war on those who think differently

Two years ago, Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich was forced to resign because it had been reported that he had given $1,000 to the campaign to pass Proposition 8, the 2008 ballot measure approved by California voters that prohibited same-sex marriage. (Later the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of marriage equality.) Now Silicon Valley activists are targeting Peter Thiel, because the controversial venture capitalist and a board member for Facebook donated $1.25 million to a super PAC that supports Donald Trump. Those of you who wonder why there is so much division in American politics need look ...

The uncontrollable man

His daughter knew what to say. So did his running mate and his campaign manager. They all knew the question was coming. And the answer was simple: Yes -- barring some extraordinary circumstances, such as what happened in the 2000 election, "Of course we'll accept." "Absolutely, we will."

Exercise can be a double-edged sword with dilated aortic root

DEAR DR. ROACH: I am a 66-year-old male in good health who was just informed by my doctor that the diameter of my aortic root has increased to 4.3 centimeters. Last year, the echocardiogram showed a number of 4.1. I have heard that running, which makes the heart rate go up, can contribute to the enlargement of the aortic root. Is there any truth to that? I hate to give up exercising. -- G.S.
