You all know Dear Abby, right? Or perhaps you're more familiar with her counterpart, Ann Landers? They offered advice concerning problems confided by readers. Generally, the advice was of a common sense nature, helpful in making a solution clearer or more easily reached. And both women became fabulously well-to-do as a result.
I'd like to do that. That is, I'd like to become fabulously well-to-do. As for offering helpful advice, does my track record indicate an even a remote possibility of doing so? No. However, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn now and again (if he doesn't get run over first) so anything's possible.
What I'm getting at here, via the same torturous route I'll be taking in replying to your missives, is that I want you to write me with your problems and dilemmas; maybe even a conundrum or two. I will, in turn, offer you my best advice, answer, kick in the ass, or whatever else seems appropriate.
Write to me at Suldog@aol.com, or - if you're so much of a lazy sot that you can't be bothered with the tedium of going all the way to your e-mail - put your question in the comments section. All questions, requests for advice, and other annoyances, received by 5pm EST on Friday, will be given an answer in this space on Monday.
(You really should ask me for advice on something. It's the most fun you're likely to get out of this space before Monday, as I'll be re-running another piece I've already re-run three times come Friday.)
Soon, with... well, that's sort of up to you now, isn't it?
