Slate Discovers Reader’s Advice Better than Columnist

slate.msn.com.jpg

Slate, in a brilliant and audacious move, finally takes one of their long-time nit-picker/commentors to their collective bosom. Doodahman, a long-time reader, has been posting to the Fray for years, usually to argue with whoever’s writing the advice column, Dear Prudence. So, now, the Slate audience can ask him directly for advice at My Two Cents. Emily Yoffe, who writes as Prudence ever since the original (and funnier) Margo Howard, left for the wilder shores of Yahoo, must be thrilled at having someone second guess her.

FBLA wonders who might be next for the shadow column treatment. FBLA also wonders how much doodahman is getting paid.
