Dear Big Daddy,A straightforward question: Will eMeg be done in by Nannygate? –Domestic in DinubaDear Dom,Aye Carumba!

Funny, how this maid situation got so, well, messy. A pity, too. Given my past with the Brown family and with Gov. Moonbeam in particular, I was hoping to see the bald one sweat until the wee hours

Dear Big Daddy,Hey, during the debate Jerry Brown took a shot at you for your rap on him for the “obscene surplus.” So what’s with that?–Larry in Los Banos

Hey L.B. Larry,Well, he’s a wild and crazy guy and you never know what he’s going to do. I’ll tell you this: He was a pain

Dear Big Daddy,So, it’s been five years, big guy. What, if anything, have you learned in half a decade of making fun of your paper’s own readers?Snarky in Sonora

Dear Snark Week,As anyone who has read every week of this claptrap knows (anyone?), it’s been a pretty schizophrenic time for me. Both in the sense

Dear Big Daddy,What about Meg Whitman and her money? –Envious in Eureka You and me both, buddy. I could have ruled the world – or at least California – with $100 million in campaign cash. Heck, I almost did with hardly a fraction of that. Oh, what I could have done with $100 million. As
