I AM A "GUN NUT. " Why? Because I own more than one. I know that's what some of you think, because you have told me so, usually behind a screen name. I also have been told I must have a small penis and I am a coward. (Because I am "afraid" to be defenseless?) I'm not saying every gun hater has said it, but many have, and the undeniable hysteria on their part doesn't help their cause. I am not a member of the NRA, which doesn't speak for me. It doesn't even speak for a majority of its members when it comes to background checks.

Andre Boyer, a former Philadelphia police officer who says he was fired for being a whistleblower, is trying to raise money online to investigate police corruption and cover his resulting, mounting legal expenses. His GoFundMe campaign, the "Dirty Corrupt Philly Cops Fund," is not exactly going gangbusters. In 20 days, only two people have donated $35 toward Boyer's $10,000 goal.

DEAR ABBY: I live in Israel, and for the past five years I've been having an affair with a great guy I'll call Yuri. I married very young to a man who is kind and very Orthodox. I love my children and grandchildren. Yuri thinks we should leave our spouses and make a fresh start. (I'm not Orthodox and neither is he.) I am afraid if I do, I may lose my children and grandchildren. On the other hand, I can't survive without Yuri. I have always had lovers since I discovered how Orthodox my husband is - it's a survival thing.

The CW's new musical dramedy Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has me stumped. I don't know what to make of the series that stars Robot Chicken writer and voice actor Rachel Bloom as a love-sick lawyer so hung up on her first boyfriend, a guy she dated for only two months as a teenager, that she turns her life upside down a decade later to be near him. Cocreated and cowritten by Bloom and Aline Brosh McKenna, who wrote last year's big-screen adaptation...

Mark Tully spent the winter of 1969 trying to concoct a new drink. It didn't go perfectly. "Now, I'm not a drinker, even though I have this bar," says Tully, owner of #1 Tavern in North Wildwood. "I do drink, but I'm not a heavy drinker. So what I would do is, I would be testing and testing all day. And my wife would call me up from downstairs and say we were ready for dinner. And sometimes I would come up and I would be a little plastered. " It all worked out. The Super Tully Nut, a five-liquor blend with a recipe known only to the inventor himself, has become a Jersey Shore tradition in the 47 years since its introduction.

THANKS to hipster vegans, almond milk is suddenly a thing: Almonds, a "thirsty crop," are draining California's water and increasing the drought, all for a product that's only 2 percent nuts. Right? Hang on: Actually, almond milk was a thing back in the middle ages, used widely because it didn't spoil as quickly as cow's milk, and because for many, almonds were easier to get than cows. And the $900 million spent on almond milk last year, making it the declining dairy industry's top competitor, came from a much larger crowd than vegans and/or hipsters.
