Due to recent tragedies, the issue of children and guns is again in the news. However, as in the past, concern for children has been lost in a debate between entrenched positions. <span class="column--highlighted-text">Whatever our personal views may be, it is time to move forward and do something to protect children from gun violence.</span><p>Updated: Sun Jul 14, 2019</p> cfa117c06be5059ec1724de5cd30a83e Classic Ann Landers for 07/07/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/07/19/classic-ann-landers-41921 Sun, 07 Jul 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

"Nameless, Faceless and Placeless" discovered that her fiance, Jeremy, was online, pretending to be unattached, and looking to meet women. She planned to trap him by pretending she was one of those mystery females. Now, he wants to meet her. She asked for your advice, because she said she loves the guy and doesn't want to lose him. You told her to stop playing games.<p>Updated: Sun Jun 23, 2019</p> 8a90dd7c03689a5cc1f420c1ad96e8e5 Classic Ann Landers for 06/16/2019 https://www.creators.com/read/classic-ann-landers/06/19/classic-ann-landers-85121 Sun, 16 Jun 2019 00:00:00 -0700 <p></p><p>Editor's Note: Hundreds of Ann Landers' loyal readers have requested that newspapers continue to publish her columns.

They are the same "losers" who look for employment in the classifieds because they have exhausted all other possibilities and are pretty darned desperate. And how about us morons who look in the newspaper to find a used car, kitchen appliances and "like-new" TV sets? Heaven help us!
