Wild ways to break free from junk food

By Marilynn Preston If I had my magic wand back — I was carrying it in the Halloween parade and it vanished — I would wave it and shazaam! all processed foods would disappear. It’s harsh, I know. I love my Sour Cream and Onion Ruffles as much as the next person. But the truth is processed foods […]

Doesn’t seem too enthused

Dear Annie: I was married for 21 years, until my wife decided to call it quits. It’s been four years since the divorce. She is now dating someone from work. I suspect this co-worker is the reason she left me, but I truly do not care anymore and have moved on with my life. For […]

What do you think? What TV sitcom family would you like to belong to?

Frank Giustino entrepreneur, Sonoma: ” ‘Seinfeld’ because it’s so unique.” Charles Poignand student, France: ” ‘My Family’ because they are all crazy.” James Kilkenny student, Davis: ” ‘Modern Family’ because it would be funny.” Jullian Zenith student, Berkeley: ” ‘The Cosby Show’ because it represents good family values, especially about African-Americans, and how it showed […]

Save The Aggie, save student media

By Neil Ruud Students are known for their brazen disregard for convention, their skeptical approach to the status quo. Over the years, universities like UC Davis have been at the forefront of progress in civilization, from the apartheid boycotts to protests against increasing student fees and growing income inequality to a dichotomy unseen since the […]

Speaking ill of the dead

Dear Annie: I was married for 30 years to a man I loved deeply. I know perfectly well he is not perfect (who is?) and saw him struggle to control his temper and sharp tongue. He had a schizophrenic father and an alcoholic mother. They divorced when he was about 10, and he bounced from […]

Hold all to the same standard

A popular theme in liberal politics recently is income inequality. The Occupy Wall Street movement waged its political war with rhetoric about “the 1 percent.” It was one of the attacks used to discredit Mitt Romney as an appropriate candidate, a man who “could not relate” to the common folk. As characterized in a recent […]

Garamendi’s right on fast track

Many thanks to our Rep. John Garamendi for going on record against the outdated “fast track” procedure that usurps Congress’ constitutional authority over trade matters. This includes most importantly the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement now under negotiation by the United States with New Zealand, Australia, Brunei, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Canada, Peru and Chile. […]

Whole Foods is on the list, too

Your article on Nugget was enlightening; however, I wanted to alert your readers to another stellar grocery store in Davis: Whole Foods Market. Ranked No. 44 on Fortune Magazine’s “100 Best,” Whole Foods Market has been high on that list every year since ranking began in 1998. Like Nugget, Whole Foods prides itself on employee […]

Climate change is being neglected

Here’s a scary fact about America: We’re much more likely to believe that there are signs that aliens have visited Earth (77 percent) than that humans are causing climate change (44 percent). That comes to mind because a couple of weeks ago, I asked readers for suggestions of “neglected topics” that we in the news […]

Your city government at work

By David Hughes Snuggled up next to my cold fireplace, I noticed in your fine fish wrap (remember, bring your own container when you go shopping), that the city of Davis has some sort of budget shortfall, somewhere in the millions? Or is it tens of millions? Oh, great, says David, I can hardly wait […]

He’s sure something is going on

Dear Annie: A couple of years ago, you published my letter signed “No-Win Situation in Wisconsin.” My wife and I had been sharing a vacation with another couple, and I witnessed the husband kiss my wife on the lips as they left. You said if I trust my wife, not to worry about it. After […]
