Dear Abby

I started reading Dear Abby daily when I was going to school. I basically read it to see some of the crazy stuff going on in people's lives. Like, the guy who doesn't know what to do with his wife who is sleeping with his sister's husband. Really? You don't know what to do? Really?

Abby usually just recommends that the person get some counseling, which is always boring to read. Sometimes I don't even bother reading Abby's advice. And sometimes I don't agree with the advice that Abby gives, but I love the columns where readers get into a debate about what Abby said. The points of view are always so polarized to one end or the other. I kinda get the feeling that a lot of the readers are elderly. Grumpy, crotchety & elderly.
