Re: “The Art of Hypnotherapy

I was thinking about going and trying hypnotherapy to break some bad habits. I like the idea of going deep into your consciousness and trying to fix the problem. Planting ideas is a great way to get people motivated to change. http://www.habitbreakers.co.nz/

Re: “Getting Rid of an OkCupid Pen Pal

Great column. Funny. Clever. But there should be a period at the end of this sentence: "Librarians get a free pass for everything, in my book (see what I did there?)"

Re: “Celebrating the Albany Bulb's Most Memorable People and Art

No question, what happened to the folks at the bulb should be memorialized. Shame on the perpetrators who attacked the homeless for committing the crime of living on a dump.

Re: “Radical Brownies: The Most Inspiring Young Women You've Ever Seen

It's sad to see adults using children for their own political gain & teaching dishonesty in the process. (smh)

Re: “Radical Brownies: The Most Inspiring Young Women You've Ever Seen

I think this is absolutely brilliant. I am not black, but I told my granddaughter about this troupe and she wants to be a Radical Brownie, too.

Re: “Radical Brownies: The Most Inspiring Young Women You've Ever Seen

Looks like peeps consider a brown/black point of view to be deviant. That means, deviating from the "real" way of looking at things. That means, guess, whose point of view is "real?"

Michael Brown was accosted . . . accused . . . attacked . . . because he was tall? because he was named Michael? because he was 18? because his stepfather loved him? because he was wearing a shirt? because he was walking? Come on, think of something that doesn't start with "b."

Re: “Daddy Issues

I love your column. Sadly, the advice you gave The Good Son is horrible. I have nothing against sex workers. But, you are recommending an old man get involved in prostitution. That could be dangerous. And it could also subject him to arrest and extreme embarrassment. If he isn't savvy enough to use a computer then what are the odds he ends up with a skanky streetwalker with a craigslist ad? Bad idea.

Better alternative? Try the online singles community. There are sites out there for seniors. A couple I found in about 30 seconds of searching:

MatureSinglesOnly.com
www.seniorpeoplemeet.com

There are plenty of single senior women - or those in similar situations to his dad's - out there. And many senior women are open to "no strings attached" romantic liasons. And I would bet he would rather comb singles ads looking for a "nice friend" for his dad than ads for sex workers. And his dad would be more comfortable and have better sex in such a relationship. Plus, the potential risks are much much lower that way.

You can't win them all. But, isn't it better not to respond to a question than to give horrible advice? Food for thought...

Re: “The Aquarium Age

You have not mentioned the show business attitude of the Aquarius AGE people like :-
The Aquarius philosophical and spiritual bent may be dangerous in that it can drive the subjects into an ivory-tower existence where they meditate on abstractions that bear little relevance to life

Re: “Radical Brownies: The Most Inspiring Young Women You've Ever Seen

Scouting in the US has a lot to atone for. I certainly welcome alternative scouting movements like the Radical Brownies, that break with the past. I understand the idea behind this approach, but prefer a traditional scouting program that is inclusive and co-ed. Gender segregated scouting is increasingly rare around the world, and should be here as well. EBE should do a profile of the 23rd Oaklanders scout group, the biggest/strongest BPSA group in California.
