Dear Helaine and Joe: - I have had the bottle in the enclosed photograph since my aunt passed away in 2001. She had the bottle in her cupboard for at least 20 years. I would like to learn more about the bottle. The side of the bottle with the relief image of FDR is stamped January 30, 1832 Franklin Delano Roosevelt April 12, 1945. The back of the bottle reads, "We have nothing to fear but fear itself," Franklin Delano Roosevelt 32nd President 1933 - 1945." The bottom of the bottle is stamped "Wheaton, N. J." and the number 3 and "First Edition" on the margins. Does this piece have any value?

In these hyper-partisan times, with red and blue at odds over health care, taxes, regulations, the environment, marriage - and just about everything else - some U.S. senators are crossing party lines to address the epidemic of sexual assault in the military.
So once again, California voters will find themselves at the vortex of the culture war.
If eliminating a tasteless and easily replaceable ingredient from the nation's food supply would save 7,000 lives and prevent 20,000 heart attacks a year, we'd do it, right? Of course, we would.
Deciding whether to see yet another movie about oppressed people - in this case, "12 Years a Slave" - starts a laborious thought process.
WASHINGTON - Coffee? Tea? Beer? Wine? A joint?
Dear Babe: I have a Mike Piazza signed National League ball.
