Thanks Dear Abby...

In the February 2nd (Saturday) Dear Abby column, a reader asks for advice regarding his/her dream of attending college overseas (his/her family apparently thinks this is hilarious). Abby's advice included "Your next step should be to visit your nearest public library and ask the librarian to help you research scholastic scholarships at universities that offer study programs abroad."

I thought it was nice to see someone recommending not only the library, but the librarian as a source of help and information. After all, you can Google anything, but it takes out the one on one help, which in many cases is needed as much as the information sought. So, thanks to Dear Abby.
