Q: My wife and I have been married for five years. We're in our mid-30s. I recently discovered that she has been viewing lesbian porn on our shared home computer. I was stunned. Our sex life is pretty good, but I feel there is plenty for me to be concerned about. Why wasn't my wife comfortable in sharing this with me? Is it possible that deep inside she may be dangerously close to trying a woman? Is it normal for women to fantasize about other women? How should I deal with this issue?

JOURNALISM is an art. But it parades its words as a science at times. We in the news business take printed words and give them to what we hope is an eager public wanting facts. We try to do that in an interesting way without being sensationalistic. When the news is something completely new, like the recent SARS epidemic, we give as much information as possible and as many viewpoints. I learned this from Daily News editor Zack Stalberg and former editorial page editor Richard Aregood.

Staff writer Bob Warner and the Daily News should be ashamed of themselves for the article on June 21, about Joseph F. Hoffman Jr. Hoffman, who is a son of a Democratic ward leader, threw out "more than twice as many tickets as anybody else" in a six-year period. Does the Daily News commend Hoffman on his excessive productivity? No. Does the Daily News give credit to Hoffman for saving the city at least another person's salary and benefits costs for that six-year period?

Richard Aregood, whose take-no-prisoners editorials helped define the Daily News for two decades, is leaving the paper to take a job with The Star-Ledger of Newark, N.J. Aregood's decision to leave the Daily News was prompted in part by disagreements with editor Zachary Stalberg over the mission of the editorial and opinion pages, as well as cutbacks in his department. During his years on the Daily News, Aregood won journalism's top awards for editorial writing, including the Pulitzer Prize in 1985.

The Daily News loves to fight for the little guy. Well, score one for the Daily News and two of its fearless reporters. Barbara Laker and Wendy Ruderman won the Pulitzer Prize for investigative journalism Monday for a series of stories that exposed a rogue police narcotics squad. Kudos, too, to Inquirer cartoonist Tony Auth, a Pulitzer finalist for his drawings "expressing consistently fearless positions on national and local issues. " The awards once again affirm the important role that vibrant newspapers play - even in tough times - not just here in the Cradle of Liberty, but across America.

Attorney and former mayoral candidate Charles W. Bowser has filed suit against the Daily News and Daily News associate editor Don Williamson, charging that he was the victim of false and defamatory statements in a column written by Williamson. In a suit filed in Common Pleas Court, Bowser accused Williamson of describing him as a black bigot and of making other disparaging remarks in a column about last summer's Urban Journalism Workshop for minority high school students, sponsored by the Daily News and the Dow Jones Newspaper Fund.

THE Daily News had the Phillies making the playoffs on the Monday before the season ended, and we know how that turned out. On Nov. 1, six days before the election, your headline said, "All over but the voting. " Headlines like these are more hurtful than helpful. Perhaps the third time you're inclined to predict the future, you'll bite your tongues and think how you might have blown it for us twice before. Stan Gibell Philadelphia

I remember when there were nine daily newspapers in New York City? Many Philadelphians have never forgotten the deceased Bulletin's slogan: In Philadelphia, Nearly Everybody Reads The Bulletin. Newspapers are dying. In this contemporary era, television has been the grotesque murderer of newspapers and magazines. Today, pay-for-TV-cable has been an ugly motive for not reading newspapers. Newspapers are in my blood. I read newspapers voraciously. In the past golden age of newspapers, it was cranky typewriters, inexpensive copy paper, rewritemen receiving stories from reporters over old-time telephones.

NOW THAT Philadelphia has already invested more than a half-BILLION dollars in stadia for "important" sports, the Daily News decides to take a position against the funding of a soccer-specific stadium in Chester? Why shouldn't soccer fans be able to watch their sport in an appropriate stadium? Is it that the money will be spent and earned outside the city? Or that your readers know nothing about the sport? Here's hoping the Legislature isn't listening. Peg Manning Eastsound, WA I don't think Barack Obama has much of a chance at winning the presidency because of his Muslim-sounding name.

THE HEADLINES grabbed attention, screaming the tragic tale of a missing woman found dead in a car parked near 30th Street Station and littered with parking tickets. Even London's Daily Mail published the story of Nadia Malik, 22, and the mysterious circumstances surrounding the discovery of her body, a year ago today, in a black Nissan Altima. But despite the initial media blitz and the dozens of stories that followed, a year later the case has not been solved and a crucial question remains: How did Nadia Malik die?

PRESIDENT Obama's interior secretary, Sally Jewel, recently noted that "there is a lot of misinformation about fracking. " She's absolutely right, and a Daily News editorial ("Tracking fracking") is a classic display of this ignorance. First, according to any number of regulatory experts - including top Obama administration officials - hydraulic fracturing is well-regulated and safe. Indeed, former Energy Secretary Steven Chu has stated that shale development "is something you can do in a safe way. " Second, Pennsylvania has some of the nation's strongest environmental regulations.

SOME 13 YEARS AGO, the Daily News alerted state Sen. Anthony Williams that he hadn't actually graduated from college, despite assertions on his official state Senate website. Wednesday, the Daily News again helped jog the senator's memory about his educational background, informing Williams of an error on his mayoral campaign website. In fact, Williams didn't graduate from Franklin & Marshall College and then go into business and then into politics, as stated on his website, anthonyhwilliams.com . When asked about the wording of the bio, Williams' campaign spokesman, Albert Butler, said, "It's a simple oversight and it can be easily corrected.

AFTER NEARLY a year of legal wrangling, a civil-rights case against two police officers and the city's top cop has been settled for $85,000. A federal judge dismissed the case, filed in March 2014 by Rodney Handy Jr. against Officers Shane Darden and Timothy Taylor and Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey over Handy's arrest in 2012, court records show. The dismissal came after the parties were able to settle their dispute out of court, according to an order filed yesterday. The city settles out of court most civil-rights claims made against police, according to a Daily News review last year of settled police lawsuits . The Daily News found that Philly paid out $14 million to settle civil-rights claims alone in 2013 — nearly four times as much as the $4.2 million just five years earlier.

FORMER CITY Solicitor Ken Trujillo, who shook up the mayor's race last week when he surprisingly withdrew his candidacy, told the Daily News yesterday that he hasn't yet decided which candidate he will support. Trujillo said each of the announced Democratic candidates - former District Attorney Lynne Abraham, former Common Pleas Judge Nelson Diaz, and state Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams - reached out to wish him well when he announced that he had to withdraw to attend to family concerns.

WHEN AARON Rogers' little brother, Tremaine, was murdered as they played basketball outside their Overbrook house in 2013, his world was broken. "My brother is all that I had," he told the Daily News . "Ninety percent of me is gone now. " This week, someone took the rest of him. A gunman shot Aaron, 20, in the face about 6 p.m. Wednesday outside Vincent's Pizza at 65th Street near Lansdowne Avenue, police said. He died 24 hours later at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania - the city's 16th homicide victim of the new year.

WILL BUNCH informs us ("Free to be - and not be - Charlie"), that he and his colleagues at the Daily News disapprove of the crude humor in Charlie Hebdo , and so will not print the cartoons that led to mass murder in Paris. A month ago, there was perhaps a place for Mr. Bunch's nuanced editorial judgments about what is, and what is not, proper. Now, however, the cartoons are at the heart of the biggest news story in the world and you are a newspaper. How can you not publish them?
