Where did Carolyn Hax advice column go?

Recently the Herald has replaced the Carolyn Hax column with Dear Abby. This is very disappointing as Hax has always given excellent, well-thought-out, creative and thorough opinions which often make one think. Dear Abby is a poor substitute. Why has the Herald made this decision? I hope you will reconsider.

Editor’s note: The Herald recently lost access to Carolyn Hax’s advice column four our print subscribers. The Herald is looking in to resuming her column soon. As well, The Herald no longer has access to the Today in History feature. We are looking into options to find a similar daily history column.
