Other interesting stories in The Washington Post:

Pauline and Esther in 1986. (John Gaps III/AP)
The obituary of Pauline Phillips, aka Abigail Van Buren, aka Dear Abby offers many delights, most involving her twin sister/rival advice columnist/best friend Esther Lederer, aka Ann Landers. Did you know that at their gargantuan double wedding in 1939, Esther subbed in a new groom at the last minute? Also see a tribute from Carolyn Hax.

In other news: See for yourself how President Obama has aged over the past four years. (Also see his new official portrait) . . . The Manti Te’o scandal puts the Internet’s weird cult of naïve credulousness on display . . . Tareq Salahi’s latest controversy sounds familiar, but it’s the first he’s suffered since entering the governor’s race . . . Machiavellian Obama campaign manager Jim Messina gets an appropriate award.
