Dear Annie: My sister-in-law of more than 40 years has again done something that I feel is disrespectful. She has taken one of my granddaughters under her wing.

Dear Annie

Body
Dear Annie: I have close friends who in the past few years have gravitated to both the far left and far right of the sociopolitical spectrum. It has made it hard on both my wife and me, as we sit somewhere in the middle.

The Full Mussolini: The Proto-Fascist in Chief Goes for Broke

Body
With two weeks to go until we choose our next president and polls continually indicating that Americans are suffering acid reflux at the thought of four more years of Donald Trump, the president has gone full Mussolini: He has threatened that “things will not go well” if Joe Biden defeats him and that he won’t agree to peacefully leave office if that occurs. He tweeted unhinged conspiratorial hogwash that former President Barack Obama had Navy Seals killed in order to “cover up” the “fact” that Osama bin Laden is alive. And he has otherwise conducted himself like a power-obsessed lunatic. Late last week, Trump accused the Bidens of being part of an “organized crime family,” a maniacal refrain dutifully repeated by his most untethered supporters, and called Sen. Kamala Harris, Biden’s running mate, a “monster” and a “communist.”

Dear Annie

Body
Dear Annie: I have been married for over 20 years to a woman who has been a good mom, but not a woman I am in love with. I care about her tremendously, but I have lost all interest in her romantically. She refuses to work to help with the rising cost of living and impending college tuition for two older teenage kids. She doesn’t really keep a clean house. I do as much or more of the cooking -- probably as I prefer to. She wears T-shirts and, half the time, no makeup when I get home.
