Michael Miner writes of an amazing coincidence in the June 14 Chicago Tribune:<p>Tempo, June 14: "Dear Amy: I am a single female in my late 30s. I've worked on the second shift my whole adult life. My only friends are people I've met from work. . . . Any suggestions on how a single person such as myself can get other single people who work the second and third shifts together? -- Single on the Second Shift"<p>Tempo, June 14: "Dear Cheryl: I'm in my late 30s. I've worked on the second shift my whole adult life. The only friends that I have are work friends. . . . Where do single adults that work second and third shift go to meet other singles? -- Night Owl"<p>"I actually think it is an amazing coincidence," says Amy Dickinson -- the alternative being that someone was making mischief. "She publishes three times a week. I publish seven times a week. And we both work two or three weeks ahead. For the same letter to land on both our laps and in both our columns -- it's amazing." <p>***What's amazing is that no editors caught this before the June 14 Tempo was published.***
