Missing Questions in Parade Magazine

Marilyn is Wrong Copyright © 1996-1998 Herb Weiner. All rights reserved.

Ask Marilyn ® by Marilyn vos Savant is a column in Parade Magazine, published by PARADE, 711 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10017, USA. According to Parade, Marilyn vos Savant is listed in the "Guinness Book of World Records Hall of Fame" for "Highest IQ."


Larry Robinson <lrobins@indiana.edu> reported that on Sunday November 17, 1996, the Parade Magazine he received with his newspaper, the Bloomington IN Sunday Herald Times, contained five questions for Marilyn, of which two were missing from the Parade Magazine that I received with The Oregonian, presumably to make room for more advertisments.

Douglas Vechinski <Douglas.Vechinski@sfo.nichols.com> reports that The Northwest Florida Daily News published in Fort Walton Beach, Florida also contained all five questions.

I understand that it is common practice for newspapers to edit syndicated columns to accomodate space requirements, but this is the first instance I've encountered in which featured columns were edited differently in regional editions of the same magazine.
