Pauline Friedman Phillips. R. I. P. Pauline Friedman Phillips, who as Dear Abby dispensed snappy, sometimes saucy advice on love, marriage and meddling mothers-in-law to millions of newspaper readers around the world and opened the way for the likes of Dr. Ruth, Dr. Phil and Oprah, has died. She was 94.

Our local paper carried Dear Abby and when I was a kid reading her column (along with Billy Graham's "My Answer") were my first introduction to regular newspaper reading.

I guess John Prine will now have one less song to sing every night.

See a therapist.

See, I could do her column and her kid can take an early retirement.
