R.I.P Pauline Phillips


Dear Abby: Two men who claim to be father and adopted son just bought an old mansion across the street and fixed it up. We notice a very suspicious mixture of company coming and going at all hours — blacks, whites, Orientals, women who look like men and men who look like women. This has always been considered one of the finest sections of San Francisco, and these weirdos are giving it a bad name. How can we improve the neighborhood? — Nob Hill Residents

Dear Residents: You could move.

Pauline Phillips, a.k.a Abigail Van Buren 1918-2013

Wtf... I used to live in Nob Hill Apts. in Madison, WI... it was a ghetto, there was a guy killed over drugs outside my front door, bullet still imbedded in the doorframe. I had no idea there were other Nob Hills... the complex sat on a big hill, called Nob, for some reason. It wasn't particularly knob shaped... just hilly. The universe is filled with strange synchronicities.

Nob Hill in San Francisco is one of the toniest addresses in the U.S. of A.
