ASK THE TWINS

Loyal Jackson Advocate readers may recall a certain regular advice column that appeared in that historic publication in the early 2000's: "Ask the Twins."

Brinda and her twin sister Linda penned the column together and were an immediate hit: readers couldn't wait to see if the double identical twins would agree! As questions poured in—on topics regarding love, faith, career, disability, and education— the column garnered a faithful following that ranged from young adults to sage seniors.

The sisters would often surprise the audience with entirely different responses to a reader's question, and were a weekly source of entertainment and insightful advice that showed there is always another way to see the world.
