Hi, I'm a Washington Post reader and their advice columns are a guilty pleasure of mine! Not a knock, they seem like a more vetted and reasonable version of the "am I the asshole" subreddit (the crazy Internet crowd-sourced version of your column) and I rarely disagree with the advice given. What do you think makes someone qualified to be an advice columnist if they're just starting out without a track record and don't have a certification like a therapy background? How does a newspaper decide that a particular writer gives good advice? And finally, how do you or the newspaper decide on which questions to take?
