By Samantha Weaver

• It was infamous German philosopher Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche who made the following sage observation: “In individuals, insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.” • If you’re like the typical person, you completely regrow your fingernails once every four and a half months. • Financial statistics show that 1 percent of the population in the United States owns more than one-third of the country’s wealth. • In the 17th century, a Frenchman opened a coffee shop in London and sold chocolate, newly imported from the Americas, for 10 to 15 shillings a

• Some species of lizards can lay many clutches of eggs over the course of a number of years after having mated only once. • Way back in 1879, the Cincinnati Gazette predicted that the game of baseball had “run its course.” • If you’re a fan of fishing, here’s a cautionary tale regarding the weather: A 48-year-old Colombian man named Felipe Ortiz decided (for reasons unknown) to go out fishing in a raging storm. He cast his line into a strong wind, but the line blew back and caused the baited hook to lodge in his throat, killing him. • You probably have never heard of the affliction once known as “boanthropy,” but evidently in the 1800s a man thinking he was an ox was common enough to require its own word. • In the past 30 years, the size of the average American home has increased by nearly twothirds. © 2009 King Features Synd., Inc.

in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran — the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used, diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber, the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most, diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few, the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon — diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. We’re supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins), many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet, then commercial products like the one you’re taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem, Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.

Most Older People Have Diverticulosis DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 78-year-old female, active and in good health — or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday, a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber, then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between “osis” and “itis”? — S.K. ANSWER: Your world isn’t collapsing. You’re healthy. You’ll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60, half of the people in North America have it. By age 80, two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colon’s muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. It’s only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm)

Please allow four weeks for delivery. ••• DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? — S.R. ANSWER: Blepharitis (BLEF-uh-RYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins, which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage, he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. ••• Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Parents, Kids and Pets DEAR PAW’S CORNER: I read with interest your recent column about the children whose pet fish died because they didn’t take care of it. You asked readers how the children could prove to their mother that they’re ready for another pet. I think you’re asking the wrong question. You should be asking when is the MOTHER ready for another pet. Being a child is about learning, exploring and having as many experiences as possible. Because they’re young, their interests change, often rapidly and unexpectedly. It isn’t fair to a child to be forced to look after a living, feeling, thinking being whose requirements don’t change (the dog always needs to be walked, for instance) and whose needs are unyielding (the dog will suffer if it’s not fed and watered). Furthermore, to make a child responsible for a pet is a poor idea on several counts: The child is set up for failure; the pet can experience discomfort at best, death at worst, from being neglected; and the adult can feel exasperation, annoyance and anger — at both child and pet. In terms of dogs, no responsible breeder of dogs will sell one of his or her puppies to a family where the children will be that puppy’s primary caregiver. Neither will a bona fide rescue group nor a wellrun animal shelter. This means that the only avenue by which the family can acquire a puppy is

from a BYB (backyard breeder) who is clueless about the goal of breeding — to produce healthy, to-standard dogs with solid temperaments. The only reason to get a pet is because the adults want one themselves, fully understanding and accepting the reality that whatever help their children provide in caring for that pet is a bonus and is not something on which they can count. Thus, I think you need to rephrase your question. — Dori, via e-mail DEAR DORI: You’ve stated your case very well, and I thank you.

What Goes Around Comes Around When prosperity is in the air, companies reach out. When hard times come, they pull back. For longtime NASCAR fans, there may be a silver lining in the recession that is wreaking havoc with the sport. For 20 years, accelerating exponentially over time, the main goal of NASCAR has been similar to the main goal of churches: Spread the Gospel. The Gospel of NASCAR. The Gospel of the France Family. The Gospel of Dale the Elder, Dale the Younger and Dale the Jarrett. The main goal has been racing for those who don’t like racing. Meanwhile, the message to those who provide the core of the sport’s support has been, “You’ll take what we give you, and you’ll like it.” Don’t let the NASCAR braintrust fool you. They’re very good at what they do, but they’ve been doing the same thing for an awfully long time. NASCAR has been growing since the early 1970s. The last time there were hard times, the Founder, Saint Big Bill of France, was still alive. As the throne passed to St. Bill the Junior, and then to St. Brian the Ambitious, no one had to worry much about failure. The Energizer Bunny really seemed to be in charge, and the sport kept growing ... and growing ... and growing. continued on page 16

As noted by many people who went to high school, Abraham Lincoln said you could fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time. NASCAR has been basing its strategies on the latter. It hasn’t come to grips with Lincoln’s view that you can’t fool all of the people all of the time. God knows they try. NASCAR has targeted its moves to people who don’t love cars. That’s why, gradually, all of the cars on the track have become just alike. It’s not exactly the Grand Concours D’Elegance out there on pit road. Where once fans lived to breathe the exhaust fumes and experience the earth-rattling roar of the mighty V-8s, now they are Die-hard fans pack the infield at many NASCAR races. mildly aware that their favorite driver’s car has been a different color every week. Where once they stared in wonderment and said, “My gosh, Virgil, I want you to look at the flared fenders on that Galaxie,” now they mutter to themselves, “The only difference is a *#@%^&! decal.” The new fans don’t know the cars they drive don’t have carburetors anymore. New fans think the Chase is groovy because it keeps anyone from having much of an advantage. Old fans really wish they could buy a Chevy shaped like the one on the race track. They wish NASCAR would “let ‘em race” at Daytona. They never saw a debris caution flag they thought was on the level. They neither own nor like dogs they consider lucky. If it weren’t for “Junior,” they’d probably stop watching altogether, or if they did watch, they wouldn’t admit it. Either there are a lot of old fans, or they all write me letters and e-mails. It’s almost all I hear. I’m not sure why they write me. I don’t have much clout. NASCAR seldom does anything other than the opposite of what I write. Now, though, NASCAR is worried. The pie fell out of the sky. A bunch of people don’t have jobs anymore. A bunch of owners don’t have teams anymore. NASCAR might even have to pay attention to the old fans again.

• On March 2, 1807, the U.S. Congress passes an act to “prohibit the importation of slaves into any port or place within the jurisdiction of the United States ... from any foreign kingdom, place or country.” Great Britain also banned the African slave trade in 1807. • On March 7, 1876, 29-year-old Alexander Graham Bell receives a patent for his revolutionary new invention — the telephone.

Q: I have a Magic Chef stove from the 1920s that requires complete restoration. There are chips on the enamel and signs of rust on the burners. Can you recommend someone who can do this type of work?

Can you help me find someone who can help me liquidate these items? — Laura, Davenport, Iowa A: I found your tractor referenced in the second edition of American Farm Collectibles by Russell E. Lewis (Krause, $24.99). According to Lewis, your tractor is worth approximately $1,000 depending, of course, on condition.
