are syndicated advice columns still a thing? anybody have any faves?
in high school (1968-dropout) i had journalistic ambitions to be a syndicated advice columnist. syndicated columnists were among the financial superstars in those days and many a writing teacher, etc., believed i had the writing talent to go the distance.
from my very first steps into formal psychotherapy (1972), i was "brutalized" for using advice-giving as a deflection tool. it was quite allot easier for me to give unsolicited advice than face the psycho snot knots of my life as a child prostitute. it took a while for me to see it, but i now believe those "abusers" were right. i STILL hate it when people i don't agree with turn out to be right.
i've come a long way since 1972 and now find myself wondering if that career option is still available in the brave new digital publishing world. not even i buy newspapers or magazines any more.
to offer some clues on how long i have been out of touch with that market. . .
my personal fave was, "miss manners." turns out she's still active.

I was able to watch my daughter March...

They haven't changed in a year since I found them, but now my groin is sore on one side. I automatically think my lymphnodes are now cancerous. One of my collarbones sticks out more than the other. I don't even...
