Fear of 911 publicity causes some not to make the call

(Continued)

BLUEFIELD — DEAR ABBY: You give so much great advice, I’m wondering if there is a basic principle you abide by in order to help guide you when giving advice. — CURIOUS READER

DEAR CURIOUS: I hadn’t really thought about it, but I suppose it’s something like this: Show up for work ready to put forth my best effort. Be honest enough to admit that not everyone agrees with me or that I’m sometimes wrong. Tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Don’t pull any punches, don’t preach and always try to be succinct.

Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.
