Abby has moved -- across town.
Chicago-area devotees of the long-running Dear Abby column now have to turn to the Chicago Sun-Times for advice.
The column appeared in the newspaper for the first time Monday. It had previously been a regular feature in the Chicago Tribune.
Jeanne Phillips is the daughter of Dear Abby founder, Pauline Phillips, and is the current author of the column.
In Monday's paper, she warned a worried boyfriend away from a girlfriend who gambles too much, and ordered a reluctant secretary to send thank you notes to business associates.
Jeanne Phillips tells the Sun-Times in an interview that an increasing number of people who write to her for help have troubles related to the nationwide economic downturn.
