The following are a few letters sent to Abigail Van Burin (Dear Abby) that she herself admitted she was at a loss to answer:
Dear Abby, What can I do about all the sex, nudity, language and violence on my VCR?
Dear Abby, Our son writes that he is taking Judo. Why would a boy who was raised in a good Christian home turn against his own?
Dear Abby, I joined the Navy to see the world. I’ve seen it. Now, how do I get out?
Dear Abby, My forty-year-old son has been paying a psychiatrist $50 an hour every week for two-and-a-half years. He must be crazy.
