Last week I read that Pauline Phillips died. You might be thinking, who in the world is Pauline Phillips? And no, she isn’t the girlfriend, wife or mother of last year’s American Idol winner Phillip Phillips. This Phillips, you do know, or at least you have heard her name. Pauline made her living giving advice (her opinion) to many different people on every subject under the sun. She actually went by another name, that being Abigail Van Buren. Now, if that doesn’t help, then maybe you will remember her by another name: “Dear Abby.”
She was the original Dear Abby who lived to be 94 and married to her husband for 73 years. She gave her opinion in some 1,200 newspapers that was read by 9 million readers.
