Dear Annie 8/8

Dear Annie: I’m 73 years old and having feelings like a 17-year-old. “Richard” and I were an item in high school. It ended when my mother would no longer let me see him. I didn’t know why at the time. Many years later, I figured out why; but it’s complicated and has no bearing on what’s going on now. However, I always regretted how things ended for us.

Dear Annie 8/6

Dear Annie: I feel some days I just can’t handle our society and the cruelty of men and women toward other humans or defenseless animals. My life has been full of neglect, disrespect, abuse (mental and physical) and loneliness, so I’m accustomed to it.

UPDATED: Thu., Aug. 6, 2020

Death can be one of the best career moves for a rock star. Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse kept ascending as recording artists when they passed. Each remains on a pedestal.
