I remember reading her column back when I was in my 20's and had a lame-ass job with nothing better to do than read the paper.

Link to story.


Quote:
Dear Abby: My boyfriend is going to be 20 years old next month. I'd like to give him something nice for his birthday. What do you think he'd like? — Carol
Dear Carol: Nevermind what he'd like, give him a tie.

Dear Abby: What inspires you most to write? — Ted
Dear Ted: The Bureau of Internal Revenue.

Dear Abby: I've been going with this girl for a year. How can I get her to say yes? — Don
Dear Don: What's the question?


Quote:
If the letters sounded suicidal, she took a personal approach: "I'll call them. I say, 'This is Abby. How are you feeling? You sounded awfully low.' And they say, 'You're calling me?' After they start talking, you can suggest that they get professional help."


She had a great run.

How long has her sister been dead now? They were something else in their hay day. Abby and Ann.

I think Ann died in 2002. I grew up reading Ann Landers, but I guess that's because we had the Chicago Sun Times delivered.

Did she really die, or did she just fake her death on the internet to get attention?
