It's great to have one of "Chicago's own" in a production about another of our local heroes! Congrats to Judy and her work on this.

Ann, were she alive today, would be disgusted and appalled at the quality of "advice" columns today. Her All-American values have been trampled and trounced by her imitators and successors.

We often talk about inter-era sports teams and athletes competing in a hypothetical match.

I would pay top dollar to see dear Ann Landers take on the likes of Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah debate moral values in the 21st century.

The common sense and life values promoted by Ann are being destroyed faster than ozone.

If Ann were alive today, she would be disappointed at the new columnists.
The "Ask Amy" advice comes off as very condescending compared to the advice that Ann gave. At least Ann understood that people need a bit of compassion when being told how to solve a problem - not a 'good grief how stupid are you' attitude.
