DATES TO THE RESCUE … after I mentioned in this space yesterday that one of our town’s prominent soda tax proponents had published a recipe for a date cake with several sauces that called in total for 5½ cups of sugar, a real medical doctor commented that “micronutrients” in dates can somehow magically mitigate the […]

Bob Dunning: How will we tell the pitchers from the belly itchers?

As much as I appreciate good sportsmanship when I see it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone try to legislate it. Until now.

Bob Dunning: It’s us vs. ‘them’ in the battle of the lawns

In this city famous for mandating a mistletoe-laden street tree in every front yard under penalty of death, it should be expected that all those trees eventually will drop several tons of leaves on our lawns and streets.
