D.C.’s favorite moralist (or most beloved hate-read writer, depending on your view), Emily Yoffe, is completing her tenure as Slate’s advice columnist, Dear Prudence. Mallory Ortberg—millennial, co-founder of The Toast, and erstwhile Gawker and Hairpin contributor—will take over the position. Yoffe had held the position since 2006, according to Slate’s announcement.
Ortberg announced on Twitter she’ll stay on at The Toast; Yoffe’s last column will appear on Slate.com this Thursday. Now is your last chance to get some advice about that time your uncle cannibalized your ex-husband who was still living with you at the time while married to your sister and the whole family tried to cover it up until one Christmas it came out that you were adopted and in fact your birth parents were notorious area serial killers but also atheists who had won the lottery, and what does a Slate writer think you should do about it?
