Question of the Day

Sep 25, 2014

Yesterday's question (with thanks to frequent QOTD participant, journalist and author Margo Howard for submitting it): Which famous newspaper editor is credited with building the careers of both Mike Royko and Ann Landers?  That would be Larry Fanning of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Congratulations to Paul DelColle, who was the first and only person to answer that correctly! That was a tough one, so, excellent work, Paul!

As for today's question, here it is: Seeing as we're on the subject of Ann Landers, what were the real names of both Ann and her rival/twin sister of "Dear Abby" renown? (Be sure to name both!)
