DEAR ABBY: When I was a child, my mother — a bipolar schizophrenic — abused me. At 12, I decided I had had enough of her mental and physical abuse. A family friend helped me to leave and be placed with my father. I am now 35 and haven't seen my mother since then. A few years ago I wrote her a letter. In it I included pictures of my children, saying I would like her to know her grandchildren. She ripped the photos into pieces and sent them back with a note telling me to leave her alone and that I had "made my choice in life.

It isn't generally known, but anyone can sell pictures to newspapers and magazines. Although most publications have full-time, salaried photographers, they also have a budget to buy "outside" photos from nonstaffers. Their staffers can't be everywhere. When houses collapse, buildings burn, autos collide, small planes land in back yards, firefighters rescue a kitten from a utility pole, it's possible that the publication won't even know about the event until well after it's all over - yet each of those situations would make an interesting news or feature picture.

WHILE I FIND the devastating death toll of the tsunamis a huge tragedy, I have often turned the news off because of the depressing reports and heart-wrenching pictures.

Thank you for the most beautiful love-in-action story you have ever published ("Seeking a key to open his mind," Aug. 1). Staff writer Julia Cass and photographer Michael Viola are the greatest. The pictures are so special. They portray Sucha Asbell showing her love for her father, Dr. Albert Order, who has been in a semi-coma since an automobile accident. The pictures are so heart-warming they bring tears to the eyes. The article was also very special. It must be a comfort to Dr. Order's patients to know he is not forgotten.

Composite photographs showing what Crown Princess Victoria might look like in a bikini were splashed across Sweden's tabloid press Thursday, breaking a long taboo. "It is unethical and tasteless," the royal palace's information secretary, Cecilia Wilmhardt, said. "Our solicitors are looking into this and will decide if or when anything will be done about it. " The paste-up pictures were published by the Swedish weekly Se & Hor - See and Hear - which attached the head of the 19-year-old princess to shots of a swimwear model under the headline "Victoria - How We Want to See You This Summer.
