Dear Abby ditched from Oregon paper

Michael Arrieta-Walden, public editor of The Oregonian, explains in his weblog on Sunday about the newspaper's recent choice to drop the "Dear Abby" column from its pages to offer another advice column, "Ask Amy," on a daily basis. Arrieta-Walden informs that while there were complaints, the amount was "smaller than I anticipated." In fact, there were "more than 50 readers made the effort to thank" the editors for making the move.

A quality use of a blog, IMHO - informing a newspaper's readers of the ins and outs of what goes on inside the publication - wonder if this column appeared in the print edition as well.
