Dear Ann Landers,
"Frustrated in L.A." blamed the impossible-to-open drug containers on the guy who spiked the pain-reliever capsules. Wrong target. The reason those caps were designed was to stop toddlers from killing themselves. It's worth it. Please tell your readers that those containers CAN be opened. Place the bottle on the kitchen or bathroom counter. Then, put your palm on the bottle top and lean on it while turning your palm counter-clockwise. If you use your body weight to twist the cap, it will unclick from the locked position and be easier to open. -- Brad in Highland Park, Ill.

Dear Brad,
I tried it, and you're right. It works! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Our Reader to Reader Question of the Week:

Dear Readers,
, whatever they needed I provided. What really hurt my son and I the most was the obituary - we were not mentioned at all. Our friends (mine and hers) were appalled. I was embarrassed and upset for not just me, but for my son-who loved her also. I never been so upset. Her x-husband put his wife and kids and their grandchildren in the obituary, who my girlfriend barely knew. They live an hour away from us. I know its silly to be mad over a little section of the newspaper, but it still hurts. Will time let this devastating loss of her and this article ever go away? I am so angry at this whole situation, its not like we can go and rewrite an obituary notice.

Tell us what you think?
