  • Ask Mr. Manners, with Buenos the Cat

    buenosheadshot01.jpgMy longtime boyfriend and I have just gotten engaged to be married!  I'm very excited about it and I know he is too.  Part of my excitement is that I have always wished I could change my last name, Venkataramana, to one that is easier for Westerners to pronounce.  I know it seems old-fashioned but

  • Ask Mr. Manners, with Buenos the Cat

    buenosheadshot01.jpgI lost my job last week and I'm preparing for being unemployed.  It's a tricky thing because as a hedge fund manager I developed a taste for the finer things in life like caviar and champagne.  I used to love to take dates to fancy restaurants and travel to distant foreign lands four times a year w

    Dear Buenos, I've read all your columns and they've really helped me out so first and foremost, thank you. My question for you is this: what gives your life meaning? Most humans write out of a sense of ego? Is this true for you as well? - Bored in Boca Raton

  • Ask Mr. Manners, with Buenos the Cat

    buenosDear Mr. Buenos, I live a blessed life in the little hamlet of Sioux City, Iowa with my wonderful wife and my two beautiful children.  I have a decent job selling car insurance and a network of supportive friends who know me very well.  Why would I have any reason to be depressed, right?  Well even with all that my Father God has given me I still have found myself feeling the terrible weight of depression for weeks now.  I've been having trouble sleeping, thinking about the drudgery of my existence.  I've been loosing weight at an alarming speed and just recently I wasn't able to make love to my wife.  It hurt her feelings terribly and I'm afraid my depression might become contagious to her if I can't give her the love and support that she needs.  Why would God put me through this?  I have to confess that I question His existence now that I'm in this terrible funk.  Do you have any words of support for people out there having their faith questioned? - Downer Steve
