Dear E. Jean: Several months ago, I was chosen to be a bridesmaid along with some of my friends.

Basket, My Begonia: Take pity. This is as fine and dippy a dingbat to cleave to the Ask Eeee column in many a moon, but show mercy on the nutcake. I suspect she’s made an unhappy marriage. The ex-maids must invite her for brunch. Let her vent. Kindness will put an end to her batty e-mails, and by standing up for the helpless and the crazy, you’ll feel the power of a compassionate heart. Of course, if she remains angry, drop her.
