This will be my last column as Dear Margo. I have been giving advice for 15 years — first as Dear Prudence and then under my own name. I have been writing for newspapers for 45 years. The time feels right to retire from deadline journalism. I plan to write long-form pieces as the spirit moves me.

I am not leaving to spend more time with my family, but rather to spend more time with my inner child . . . the one who has lunch with girlfriends, shops, sleeps late, and plows through decades of files (kind of a jumped-up version of straightening up your sock drawer).
