DEAR DR. GOTT: I read with interest a letter from a reader who had trouble swallowing. I too had trouble swallowing pills and received many suggestions. My general-practice physician told me to gargle with salt water. This didn't help, so I consulted an ear-nose-and-throat specialist. He looked down my throat and knew right away I had cancer on my epiglottis (the "lid" that closes the windpipe during swallowing to prevent inhalation of food). He confirmed his visual observation with a biopsy.

MERCED, Calif. - The end came in a blink outside the Merced County courthouse.
Just past the shed, along what would be a fencerow - if there was a fence - the field lies flat and even. Not like a pane of glass, but like a table covered in a cloth smoothed by hands smelling of dish soap and lotion, with vague and uneven undulations that beg to be smoothed. Cut over and harrowed, it holds no sign of what grew there last year or the year before, or the decades of years before.

There is a lot of skepticism about God today - as there has almost always been. Whether from atheists who deny God's existence, agnostics who aren't sure about the existence of God; or pessimists who doubt God's nature, who ask questions such as, "Where is God when bad things happen?" or, "Why does God allow evil?" These are not unusual ideas or questions, and honest questioners deserve an honest response.
