ABBY: The IRS needs help from your readers.

Starting in May, economic stimulus payments of up to $600 
for individuals and $1,200 for married couples will be 
issued by the IRS based on 2007 tax returns. Parents also 
get $300 for each eligible child.

To receive it, people must file a 2007 tax return. That's 
all there is to it. And here's where your readers can 
help: Millions of people are eligible, but may not know 
it. Certain retirees, disabled vets and low-wage workers
do not normally file a tax return. However, this year 
they must in order to receive the payments.

Your readers can help not just the IRS but perhaps them-
selves, friends or family by spreading the word. Please 
ask them to mention it to people they think might 
qualify. The eligibility rules are on irs.gov, the best 
source of information.

Generally, people who have at least $3,000 from earned 
income or certain benefits from Social Security, 
Railroad Retirement and Veterans Affairs -- or a 
combination of income from these benefits -- are eligible. 
They need only provide a few details on a Form 1040A. 
We'll do the rest. 

DOUG: You're a wise man who obviously understands the 
power of word-of-mouth "advertising." And I am sure 
Dear Abby readers will be glad to pitch in and help 
get the word out so that everyone who is entitled will 
receive a check. For further details, simply go to 
http://www.irs.gov. Readers, thank you for helping to 
publicize this effort.

ABBY: One day my dad was talking to one of my friends, 
and he said, "We're poor." Abby, we live in a nice 
house in a middle-class neighborhood. Both my parents 
have their master's degrees, and I never have to worry 
about having something to eat or if I can afford to 
pay for my college education.

My parents always make comments about how much things 
cost and how much they can't buy. I'm sorry, but it's 
just a little bit irksome. I feel like their obsession 
with money is putting a crimp on enjoying the good things 
in life. Why can't they be a little more "cup is half-

LINDSAY: Your father may have gotten some bad news about 
his investments the day he spoke to your friend -- as 
many people have over the past year -- or perhaps he 
suspected that she was palling around with you because 
she thought you had money. Ask your dad why he said what 
he did, because the answer could be enlightening.

It would have been helpful if you had mentioned what 
preceded your father's comment. That would have put it 
in context.

ABBY: Why do people put old photos in the obituaries? When 
photos started appearing in obituaries, I thought it was a 
little strange. But publishing a photo taken at age 20 of 
a person who died at 85 makes no sense to me. 

SNAPSHOT: Consider this: Perhaps the deceased -- or the 
grieving family -- preferred that he or she be remembered 
in the full bloom of youth rather than ravaged by age or 
disease. That's the logical explanation.
