Dear Ann Landers, Here's a Gem of the Day that could save your readers a trip to the emergency room: Toothpicks are the object most people choke on. Dental floss is much safer and works just as well. -- Fremont, Neb.
Dear Fremont, Thanks for the input. What you have written could be one of the most important pieces of information my readers have seen in a long time.

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.
