Tell All: Should I accept a friend's offer to live abroad?

Dear Tell All: My best friend is so adventurous it amazes me. She just seems to make stuff happen. She studied abroad in Italy during her junior year and traveled all over Europe. Then last summer she volunteered at a school in Guatemala. After we graduate this spring, she's planning on working in Australia through an organization called BUNAC. She asked me to go with her, but for some reason, I'm having a hard time saying yes. >More
 Tell All: Sarah Palin's foulmouthed kids

Dear Tell All: Forget about whatever political differences I might have with Sarah Palin. As a mother of a 15-year-old and a 12-year-old, I'm shocked at the kind of children she's raised. Her 16-year-old, Willow, and her 20-year-old, Bristol, have been in the news for their foul exchange with Facebook friends. One of these friends expressed a mildly negative opinion about Palin's new TV reality series, spurring an extended outburst from Bristol and Willow. They spewed out slurs like "effin fat as hell," "faggot," "dumb ass" and "low life loser," plus innumerable four-letter words. >More
 Tell All: My husband wants the world's biggest TV

Dear Tell All: I'm hoping you can help my husband and me reach an agreement. Our television died recently, so we've been shopping for a new one. My husband wants the biggest TV possible, so that his football games "will leap off the screen." I, on the other hand, want something small, not some monstrosity that will take over our living room. Plus, I have a hard time justifying spending over $1,000 on what seems like a luxury. >More
 Tell All: Sex under Republicans

Dear Tell All: As a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, I'm sick about the huge gains the Republicans made on Election Day, especially in Wisconsin. All Democrats are depressed, I know, but with me it goes beyond a general sense of disappointment and dread. Republican majorities actually make it hard for me to have sex. >More
 Tell All: Spam so bad it's good

Dear Tell All: I loved your response to the email spammer ("A Spam Romance," 10/22/2010). I can't believe all the time and energy we waste battling spam. Does anyone really fall for that stuff? Most spammers can't write or spell, and you can spot the scams from a mile away. So what's the point? >More
 Tell All: Were pranksters really responsible for gay teen's suicide?

Dear Tell All: I was as troubled as anyone by the recent suicide of Tyler Clementi, the gay freshman at Rutgers University. Clementi jumped off a bridge after his roommate and an accomplice secretly filmed him having sex with another man in his dorm room and broadcast it online. But I have to admit also feeling troubled that the perpetrators of the prank are facing a possible 10 years in jail. To me, it seems wrong to pin the kid's death on them. >More

 Tell All: Oodles of noodles

Dear Tell All: I have a follow-up question to the results of your ramen noodle experiment reported on 9/10/2010. Does every package of ramen noodles have "68 20-inch pieces and over 40 smaller ones"? In other words, how good is the quality control for ramen noodle package production? >More
 Tell All: I give up on gay rights in the United States

Dear Tell All: I was disheartened when the Senate recently voted against taking up the bill that would repeal the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. Yet again, gays and lesbians have to twiddle their thumbs while the United States decides whether to grant us normal civil rights. I'm ready to throw up my hands and admit that this country will never consider gays and lesbians real people. It's been especially hard to live here in Wisconsin since the state voted to ban same-sex marriage in 2006. >More
 Tell All: Will the new high-speed train be good for romance?

Dear Tell All: I'm excited about the upcoming high-speed passenger rail service between Madison and Milwaukee -- and not just be-cause it will get me to Summerfest quicker than my car. No, the part that thrills me is the possibility for romance on the round-trip voyage. >More
