Dear Cora: Letters for April 16, 2014

black heart

Dear Cora,

My husband is a hobbyist paranormal investigator and occult researcher. I want him to embrace his hobbies– really, I do! It’s just that the glow from some of the arcane texts he leaves on the nightstand makes it really hard to get to sleep. I don’t want to come off as nagging, but… what should I do?

Lovie C.

Dear Lovie,

I can see why you’re concerned! Maybe there is a compromise here. Does he have to leave these glowing texts out on the nightstand? Perhaps you could get him a lidded box to keep them in, maybe something adorned with crosses or other religious insignia? If you truly want to support his endeavors, both of you may have to encounter such objects, but you can certainly find a way to meet in the middle so that it does not actively disturb your rest.

Good luck,


black heart

Dear Cora,

Aircraft have been leaving chemtrails in the atmosphere over my city for the past few years, and I’ve just started to develop some… loss of… manly function. Can you recommend a shoulder-fired missile I can purchase to shoot down one of these planes as an example for the others?

Howard H.


Dear Howard,

Are you sure shooting down one of these aircraft is a great idea? Think of the disaster it could cause–even more chemicals left in your area! Personally, I would not want to be responsible for that. In regards to your other problem, have you considered checking with your doctor or another trusted professional about other ways to re-establish your “manly function”? There may be medical and other natural ways to help your concerns without releasing a bounty of chemicals into your area.

Best Wishes,


black heart

Dear Cora,

We are concerned parents. We’ve recently heard that the HPV vaccine and birth control pills are being prescribed to sterilize young white women. We have a teenage daughter and are concerned for her safety. What should we do?

Keep us in your prayers,
The Joneses


Dear Joneses,

Don’t you think the world would be better if you sterilized your daughter? Think of the example you could set!

What a good joke, though. I think you are being a bit paranoid here. The HPV vaccine and use of birth control are personal choices meant to help aid a woman’s sexual health. HPV is actually a very common STD, but certain strains are more malicious than others. Do not put your daughter’s health and life at risk. Discuss this decision with your daughter and a doctor.

Seriously, go see the doctor,
