Civilian jobs hold no interest

Dear Annie: I am a 23-year-old man. I served in the army and deployed to Afghanistan. I was medically discharged for PTSD about two years ago. I’m currently going to school to be a firefighter, but I’m afraid I’ve picked this field not because it interests me, but because I cannot go back into the […]

My ex has regular visitation, but I am the one who handles all the sick days, school conferences, injuries, etc. He never bothers. Shortly after the divorce, I had to take a job at a much lower salary. There […]

The hand I hold will never hold me down

Two years ago Sunday, I married my best friend. And I’m thrilled to report that marriage hasn’t changed that. Known as The Cutest Man In The World (TCMITW) to those of you who’ve followed this thread for the last decade or so, Joe is proof positive that soulmates really do exist. I know I’ve found […]

When nature calls, you can’t put it on hold

DebraDeAngeloW The best part of last week’s story about my adventures in radio commercials is the part I didn’t tell: getting there. But first, some context. I have the bladder of a hamster. And my urgency ratio is directly linked to my stress level. The higher the stress, the greater the urgency. If I’m anxious […]

Trip to Gettysburg not my usual type of vacation

Enterprise columnist Whenever I have pictured myself as a soldier, something IÕve done many times over the years, especially during the Vietnam era, IÕve imagined myself feeling totally out of place in war. I imagine myself going along with whatever IÕm supposed to do, because IÕm basically obedient and a conformist, but keeping my thoughts […]

Wineaux: The perils, pitfalls, pleasures and perks of analysis

My students often complained that analyzing a book ruined it for them. I feigned sympathy but since such analysis was both passion and profession, I attempted to convince them otherwise. Analysis of a book—savoring it, asking it questions, looking at its components, putting it in a context (or two) talking about it — makes me appreciate it […]

How to ask without asking

Dear Annie: My brother is 42 and getting married for the first time. His bride-to-be has been married before. My mom and I would like to give her a bridal shower, but it seems they have most of what they need. However, they don’t own their own home. How do we send out invites and […]

Bob Dunning: We’re taking the lead on this drought thing

Because I have spies everywhere, I now have in front of me a soon-to-be-enforced directive from the city of Davis’ newly formed and highly secretive Water Aversion Committee.
