Daily Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19). As those skilled in the art of marketing know well, there are many ways to position a single product. What you present today will seem exciting, fresh and new, not because it is, but because you are the one presenting it. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you can figure ...

Dear Annie

Dear Annie: I’ve a situation at my home that I don’t know how to deal with. We’re a blended family, with an 18-year-old daughter and two boys. My stepdaughter is a senior in high school and just told her mother she likes girls, even though she has a boyfriend. We would never let ...

A right to do wrong thing

Store owner Kamal Saleh was just hit with thousands of dollars in fines. His crime? He sold three cigars for $8.89. “Too cheap!” say New York City bureaucrats. “The cigars should have cost 11 cents more.” Politicians want you to spend more for tobacco. They decided this after ...

Governing while ‘unhinged’

Restoring the American dream isn’t nuts, and neither is our president. Someone tell that to liberals still suffering from “Trump derangement syndrome” and left-wing media whose airwaves were chock-full of anti-Trump segments again this week, telling us — in an all-time low — that ...

Trump brings needed change

There’s plenty to celebrate in the December Bureau of Labor Statistics report showing black unemployment at 6.8 percent, the lowest ever since they started reporting the data in 1972. President Trump tweeted out his excitement and, of course, took credit for the good news. Has there ever ...

‘Fire, Fury’ fizzles

The most disappointed people in America this past week must be those Trump execrators who opened their Amazon package only to find that the copy of “Fire and Fury” they had ordered was subtitled “The Allied Bombing of Germany, 1942-1945.” It’s a well-regarded 2009 volume by University ...

ARIES (March 21-April 19). To craft a surprise for another person requires you to be thoughtful, clever, knowledgeable of the other person’s rhythms and tendencies... Bottom line: To craft a surprise is a rather unforgettable act of love. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). New friends are often ...

Monkeys keep dancing

Sen. Lindsey Graham’s reputation as an honorable conservative lies like a ripped-up banana peel at the bottom of the baboon cage. What happened? What turned the principled voice from South Carolina, respected by Republicans and Democrats alike, into one of Donald Trump’s dancing ...

Don’t dismiss too quickly

“Fishermen, sharpen your hooks, bring out the cheese balls and grease your bicycles. Soon there’s going to be trout fishing inside the Beltway.” That’s the first time the phrase “inside the Beltway” — meaning, in this instance, the physical realm within the I-495 ring road that ...

Dear Annie

Dear Annie: My husband and a daughter he fathered 50 years ago recently found each other via an internet post from the two children we have together. Since they met, he has been hiding in a locked room and calling her several times a day. When I asked him to stop sneaking, she sent him a phone ...

Daily Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Your social life is a series of concentric circles. Rules are different depending on which strata you’re dealing in. To act intimately with the outer ring or distant with the inner ring is a breach of unspoken contract. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You like people, ...

Sorry to see Dent go

It is almost a law of our political physics: Those who choose to leave Congress thereby demonstrate qualities that make one wish they would linger here longer. After seven terms in the House of Representatives, which followed eight years in Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives and six in ...

He’s a talented con man

For more than a year now, I’ve been hearing from people in the inner circles of official Washington — GOP lobbyists, Republican pundits, even a few Republican members of Congress — that Donald Trump is remarkably stupid. I figured they couldn’t be right because really stupid people ...

Dear Annie

Dear Annie: Reading the news about sexual harassment, one may get the idea that only men are guilty of this. I know this isn’t true. I do believe men are more prone to do so, but women in power can and do some similar acts. I know for a fact, because it happened to me when I was an elementary ...

Daily Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’re not always in control, and that’s part of what makes your life so magical. In your highest hopes you wouldn’t have come up with these twists and turns. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). If you took 10 percent better care of yourself, how would that look? Ten ...

Will people believe truth?

I’m almost beginning to feel sorry for him. Donald Trump, that is. Having previously posited that it’s wrong to make fun of the mentally deficient, I’m reluctant to further highlight recent revelations from author Michael Wolff, whose new book, “Fire and Fury,” reports on what can ...

Dear Annie

Dear Annie: A number of months ago, my mom came to visit from out of state. We’ve always had a strained relationship and never seen eye to eye. While she was here, she made a big deal about the fact that I wash my dishes with bristled brushes and not dishcloths. I explained that dishcloths ...

Daily Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19). You won’t have everyone’s approval, and frankly it would be weird if you did. You so have the blessing of all who matter in this, though, even if it’s only you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are wise. Wisdom can be practical, but often isn’t. Wisdom can ...

Results are important

I do not make it a practice to comment on the work of fellow columnists, though occasionally some care to comment on mine, which is fine. I’m happy to help them make a living. An exception will be made here because of New York Times “conservative” columnist, Bret Stephens. In an ...

Prophet deserves honor

Anyone who cannot resist the temptation to offer public predictions about public events invites and can expect public ridicule. Even pre-eminent 20th-century American columnist and public intellectual Walter Lippmann, who was courted by presidents and prime ministers, is regularly remembered ...
