Trump Was Quoted out of Context

This letter is in response to the comment Rick Melen had in his column in the Feb. 23 issue on some important things that presidents have said in the past that resonate with people. The thing that resonates with most people in the U.S.A. and the world today is what President Trump said and is still saying: “WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.”

Rick, it would be nice if you would be honest and tell the whole story of what this quote (“tiny children are not horses”) was taken from and the complete quote, or is this quote from an UNNAMED SOURCE?

Editor’s Note: On Sept. 3, 2014, Donald Trump tweeted: “No more massive injections. Tiny children are not horses—one vaccine at a time, over time.”

'Ruthie's Brigade Is Up and Running Again!'

You remember Ruthie’s Brigade, right? Why, they are my family, dear friends and you faithful readers who made up my treasured and much-needed support network when I did battle with breast cancer in 2014!

I am calling on my Brigadiers once again. As you know, I have been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation (AFib) and am taking Eliquis.

Ah-ha, it doesn’t stop there, folks.  A ...

Football Is in the Air

One thing I like about living in the Northeast is the change of seasons. You have baseball season, basketball season, tennis season and, if things get a little too quiet around the house, football season. I’ve already had “The Talk” with all the pets: Sunday afternoons are going to get a little difficult for the next 16 weeks, and if there is a lot of yelling and a wee bit of ...

Childhood's End

It’s almost as if we’re living in George Orwell’s “1984.” The world has turned upside down and it seems the inmates are running the asylum! Even to suggest such a thought is anathema in this day and age when everything must be “politically correct.” There are no criminals, there are people with “’problems”; insurrectionists are ...

'My Husband Thinks I Am a Hoarder'

People tell me that—their husbands think they are hoarders or they think that themselves. I’ve been a professional organizer for a long time and 99 percent of the time, these people are not hoarders. In fact, I’ve only met three in the last 13 years. 

Hoarding is a mental disorder, an aspect of being obsessive-compulsive (check ICD Clutter–Hoarding Scale) and it ...

Combating Stress Levels at Home

Dear Dr. Linda,

We have a daughter in 11th grade and a son in 8th. We met with their teachers at an open house and were told that they’re both great kids and are doing well. Of course, we didn’t get any more detail because it was Parent Open School Night. When we drove home, I told my husband that I don’t think they’re doing great. Intellectually, yes, but not ...

Sleep Much?

Are you one of those folks who tells people that you can get by with sleeping, say, a mere four hours a night? I’ve always envied people like that.

I’m the south to their north—a polar opposite. I need double that amount of sleep. I’ve always assumed—or maybe once was told—that it is due to my slow metabolism. Or maybe I’m just boringly normal ...

Don’t Call Me... I’ll Call You

“Hello, hello,” I said, picking up the phone when I saw my husband’s number come up on my Caller ID.

Nothing.

“Hellllloooooooooo?” I said louder.

“Can I have a tall, decaf, skim mocha Frappucino,” I heard my husband say. It sounded like he wasn’t talking directly into his phone, but rather from a galaxy far, far ...

Topics can center on such concerns as how to handle homework dilemmas or what questions to ask at a CSE meeting. Questions can range from “How best do parents advocate for their ...
