Dear Abby

DEAR ABBY: I’m 23 years old and currently in the county jail. I’m gay and also an addict, having battled a heroin addiction for the past five years. I managed to stay clean for almost two years. During that time I enrolled in college, got engaged, regained the respect of my family and started to...
DEAR ABBY: I have listened to our president and various candidates comment on gun control after the shooting at the college in Oregon. Do you remember the saying, “Guns don’t kill people. People kill people”? Gun control is not going to stop this. What IS needed (or at least would help) is more...
DEAR ABBY: I’m 22 and my mom is probably my best friend. She’s from Lebanon and grew up during a time of war. Her culture taught her to sacrifice — to put the needs of others before her own. She has a good job and earns an excellent salary. My father is retired. Their marriage is not a good one...
DEAR ABBY: My sister “Adele” chose to adopt a baby boy when she was in her late 50s. She isn’t married. Before the adoption, she asked me if something happened to her, would I take care of the child. I had already raised my children and was going through a divorce, so I said, “No. I’m too old and...
DEAR ABBY: I loved the letter from “Ready for the Reunion” (July 31), who wondered why some people in her high school graduating class didn’t respond to the notice of the reunion. Some of us would like to completely forget high school and everything associated with it. I missed my 10th, 20th,...
DEAR ABBY: I am a 28-year-old woman who has decided, after 11 years and 50-plus partners, to become celibate. A couple of friends have attempted to get me to break my vow. These men know how they make me feel, and I am finding it difficult to stay away from them. Although I have stopped spending...
DEAR ABBY: Last year my boyfriend and I moved across the country to Arizona so he could be closer to his friends and family. My entire family lives on the East Coast. Recently it seems like our plan to marry and start a family keeps getting pushed further and further into the future. I’m 35; he’...
DEAR ABBY: My husband works as a bouncer at a strip club. I was OK with it at first, but then he started making friends with the dancers and waitresses. They exchange phone numbers, and he talks to some of them late at night when I’m sleeping. I get upset and jealous that these women are getting...

BRUSSELS (AP) — Once a happy-go-lucky student at one of Brussels’ most prestigious high schools, Saint-Pierre d’Uccle, Abdelhamid Abaaoud morphed into Belgium’s most notorious jihadi, a zealot so devoted to the cause of holy war that he recruited his 13-year-old brother to join him in Syria. The...
DEAR ABBY: I’m 15 and live with my parents. My dad is an alcoholic who has finally figured out that he has had a problem for years. When I was in sixth grade, he left me once in the middle of the night (Mom was out of town) to go out drinking. Ever since that night, I have felt so much pain. I...
