Why is an obscene pillow on Ann Lander's desk?

Answer: Because it was sent by a reader to sex columnist Dan Savage who, several years ago, purchased Ann Landers' Chicago Sun-Times office desk for $200 at an auction. (He said he wanted to keep it in the advice business, and he also snagged her IBM electric typewriter for another $175.) The twitter feedback is from Landers' daughter, Margo.
     Although we have to take Margo's word that her mother was not vulgar, she could, nevertheless, be cheerfully crude in private, as revealed by a letter that Howard herself published in a book about her mother in which Landers said she was "busier than a one-armed paper hanger with crabs."
