Died after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease
(AP) The advice columnist known as ``Dear Abby'' has died.
Pauline Phillips wrote the long-running column under the name of Abigail Van Buren. A publicist says she died yesterday after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.
Her column competed for decades with a similar column written by her twin sister using the name Ann Landers. Pauline Phillips was 94.
