DEAR ABBY: My dad's first wife, "Peggy," got pregnant while he was overseas in World War II. When he came home, he divorced her and tried without success to get custody of their two kids. Peggy went on to have three more kids out of wedlock with three different men. She had sex in front of the kids, misspent their child support money - you name it. She also put Dad's name on all of their birth certificates.
Mama was driving the Mule and Daddy was hanging off the edge of the passenger-side seat, a rather precarious way of riding necessitated by the fact that Lily and Tamar were in their usual places - Lily sprawled in the floorboard and Tamar sitting front and center beside Mama.

DEAR DR. GOTT: My doctor recently refused me a referral for a second opinion.

A good way to get some in-depth information about a career is to go online and type in the Bureau of Labor Statistics, mess around with that database for a tad and then switch to Occupational Outlook Handbook.
