Don’t blame the flirt here

Dear Annie: Please comment again about emotional affairs. My husband says this is a bunch of malarkey. He has been hanging out quite a bit at a local establishment, which is owned by a woman who is rather flirtatious. She can get the men who come there to do little favors for her, and this […]

No, no, he sounds like a dream

Dear Annie: My boyfriend and I are in our 60s and have known each other since high school. We reconnected five years ago, and for the past 18 months, we’ve been living together.

David Brooks: The child in the basement

Maybe you’re familiar with Ursula Le Guin’s short story, “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas.” It’s about a sweet and peaceful city with lovely parks and delightful music. The people in the city are genuinely happy. They enjoy their handsome buildings and a “magnificent” farmers’ market. Le Guin describes a festival day with delicious […]

Traffic issues are first priority

At the risk of repeating what I already wrote in an Enterprise op-ed piece some months ago (Aug. 17), I believe the Nishi discussions are putting the cart before the horse. If, as the name implies, the project is a “Gateway,” then all kinds of traffic must pass through it. Will this be a true […]
