Yeah, yeah. We all know the bit about springtime thoughts turning to love. But, trust us, there are plenty of other pressing issues to think about at this time of year. Like how you're going to look in that bikini and what intriguing white wines we're going to drink with the bright, fresh-from-the-garden food of the season. That means time to expand our horizons. Forget heavy, oaky chardonnays. For kicks, let's even forget all the ... [full story]

Q. Our city government is currently discussing specific dog breed ban legislation. This has arisen because of several serious dog attacks on children recently by mostly large breed dogs, which look like they might be partially pit bull. This issue has really divided our community and has become very emotional. Are dog bites a problem throughout the United States? Are we just more concerned in our community right now because of the recent attacks? A. ... [full story]

Every spring and every autumn, regular as clockwork, my wife Kate's eyes turn red, swollen, watery and itchy. Very irritating. Not to mention that it puts her out of action for pretty much any outdoor activity until she can get the allergies under control using anti-allergy pills. Like many older people, Kate has developed year-round allergies as she has grown older. Until her 40s, she was allergy free. Then, for a number of years, her ... [full story]

Governments lie to their citizens.  It is the norm.  We have come to expect it.  Sometimes we like it that way.  Lies can provide psychological comfort. Lies are particularly well-absorbed in matters dealing with war and the military.  Armed forces recruitment would be seriously impaired if we asked young men and women to bear arms for the economic benefit of Chevron, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Haliburton International, and unnamed global investors.  It is ...

PORTLAND, Ore. - Portland can be a little paradise in the summertime. The city streets are crowded with residents enjoying the neighborhood bistros and coffee shops, and the hopping breweries have helped change deserted warehouse districts into thriving nightspots. By mid-June, the constant gray mists of spring have melted away, revealing deep-blue-sky summer days. Temperatures are perfect for long evening strolls.   MAJESTIC MOUNT HOOD - A view of downtown Portland, dubbed 'The best little European ... [full story]

Q: Are there examples of pets that have helped presidential candidates win elections? Do candidates ever use their pets in their campaigns? It seems to me that some of the candidates for the 2008 election might benefit by including their pets in their campaigns. Given that more households in the United States have pets than have children, it make sense to me that having a warm, fuzzy pet might be a real asset to a ... [full story]
