DEAR ABBY DISCOVERS BLOGS
Stop the presses! Dear Abby takes on the hard-hitting subject of blogs and other computer tech issues today. You go, girl.

The syndicated headline--"ONLINE DIARIES CAN CAUSE TEEN FRIENDSHIPS TO SUFFER"--sucks. I liked the one in my local paper much better: "WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF 'BLOGS'". Although, given the letterwriter's subject, "online diaries" is probably more apropos.

What's with Abby suddenly joining the 21st century? Could it be that she's anticipating some heat from her new competition, Ask Amy?
