  • We should do better for pregnant workers

    We should do better for pregnant workers
    If Facebook is any indication, we're a nation that celebrates pregnancies. We click like on ultrasound images, send messages of congratulations and type "OMG! So adorbs!" on photos of newborns. In the workplace, however, pregnancy is often met with...
  • Ask Amy: Making ends meet is easier with the right kind of help

    Ask Amy: Making ends meet is easier with the right kind of help
    Dear Amy: I'm 63 and just barely survive on Social Security. I often run dry days before my benefit check arrives, which means no food for me. I have a couple of old friends who send me "care packages" at Christmas, which contain things I just don't...

    Ask Amy: Newlywed hates his wife. What next?
    Dear Amy: I've been married for two weeks and frankly I hate my wife. She is completely lazy, and pays absolutely no attention to me. She was so nice when we were dating, but it was probably all just for show. I come from a "richer type of family" and...
  • Rand Paul is right: Cig taxes factored into Garner's death

    Reasonable people can disagree on whether racism was involved in the tragic death of Eric Garner. My own suspicion is that this misfortune could have transpired just as easily with a white man resisting arrest and/or a black cop choking him. And even...

    For new Bears coach John Fox, so much to do, so little time to do it
    It was the old Argentine rugby player Ernesto "Che" Guevara who once observed: "The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall.'' The Bears need to apply that reasoning to life with new coach John Fox, who somehow...

    Ask Amy: Man wonders if co-worker is gay, wants to contact him
    Dear Amy: Many years ago, I had a sexual relationship with a man. After we had been involved for about a year, he told me he had a girlfriend. We both got married to members of the opposite sex. That was a few years ago. Although I am currently...

    Ask Amy: Parents of small child need a date night
    Dear Amy: My husband and I have been married for six years. We have a 3-year-old daughter. We both work full time. Lately I have been feeling like we never make time for mommy and daddy time. I would love a date night, but my husband is always making me...
  • Simple, thoughtful ideas can transform workplaces

    Simple, thoughtful ideas can transform workplaces
    I have several resolutions for this column in 2015: 1. Hone the "America's most-beloved workplace advice columnist" brand; maybe get it printed on T-shirts. 2. Sell editors on in-person expose about people whose workplace is a beach-side bar in Bali....
  • Ask Amy: Single woman wonders why she picks duds

    Ask Amy: Single woman wonders why she picks duds
    Dear Amy: I'm a single, childless woman in my early 30s who seems to always attract the wrong men, and I keep wondering how to break this pattern. I have an advanced degree, a good job and am financially secure. I keep meeting men who appear to have...
  • New drug shows promise to extend life for cats with 'dry" FIP

    Ask Amy: Mom seeks antidote for holiday blues
    Dear Amy: My husband and I have been married eight years and have 6- and 7-year-old sons. We got married when we were in our 40s and, with the exception of my father who lives several states away and is in good health, our parents have either passed...
