Ms. Abby, advice columnist, dies at 94.

I admit that I was a fan and avid reader of her sister, Ann Landers' column, first.

Dear Abby,

I am a crack dealer in Phoenix who has recently been diagnosed as a carrier of the HIV virus. My parents live in Reno. One of my sisters is married to a transvestite.

My father and mother have recently been arrested for growing and selling marijuana. They are financially dependent on my other two sisters, who are prostitutes.

I have two brothers: one is currently serving a non-parole life sentence for the murder of a teenage boy. My other brother is currently in jail awaiting charges of sexual misconduct with a minor.

I have recently become engaged to marry a former porn star who lives in Scottsdale. She is a part time 'working girl.'

All things considered, my problem is this. I love my fiancee and look forward to bringing her into the family. I certainly want to be totally open and honest with her. Should I tell her about my cousin who is a Congressman?

Signed,

Worried About My Reputation

Yesterday at work I checked the online news and saw the story about Dear Abby passing.  I told one of my co-workers and she had no idea who I was talking about (she's in her 20's).  I thought everyone knew who Abby was.
