    Did Dear Abby dismiss this reader’s question of rape?

    For 60 or so years, Dear Abby has been answering our questions about love, life and relationships. She’s been a trusted source, a “good friend.” But her most recent response to a question of rape has some second guessing her trusted judgement.  Founded in 1956 by Pauline Phillips who used the pen name Abigail Van Buren, her daughter Jeanne Phillips took over the job in 2002.  On Wednesday, a letter by “Uncertain in Illinois” was written by a grade 11 student, discussing a recent encounter she had with a male that she thought might be rape.

    Party City at Center of Controversy Over Halloween Kids' Costumes

    “Generally speaking, real life uniformed female police officers do not wear short skirts and low-cut shirts,” a furious mother has fumed on Facebook in an open letter to Party City that’s going viral.  Urging the store to stop selling “sexualized” Halloween costumes for young girls, Lin Kramer’s Sept. 14 post explained that she was “appalled” by the options available to her 3-year-old daughter on Party City’s website when she browsed their Toddler Costumes category.  STORY: Most Popular Halloween Costumes in 2015 “While Halloween costumes are undoubtedly about ‘make-believe,’ it is unfathomable that toddler girls and boys who might be interested in dressing up as police officers are seeking to imagine themselves in the incongruent way your business apparently imagines them,” she blasted. “Toddler girls are not imagining and hoping that they will grow up to become a ‘sexy cop’…Please, Party City, open up your view of the world and redesign your marketing scheme to let kids be kids, without imposing on them antiquated views of gender roles.”  Party City responded to the note, but not in the way Kramer had hoped.
