Just about everything that happens to our boomer president, Barack Obama — even the revelation that his hair is starting to turn gray — makes the news. Of course, friends, the graying of America is not exactly news to us septuagenarians.

Dear John: I have a chronic illness without a known cure. Because of my illness, I also am unable to have children. Should I mention this on the first date, or will it scare guys off?

In the throes of a crisis, a family would do anything to halt the destruction caused by a loved one's inability to stop drinking or taking drugs. But what about calling the police?
