Well, you know journalism. Maybe her letter ended with, "I don't care about that really, what's the best way to fix the car?" and they edited it out.

I can't believe it's real though. Of course, these days, you never know.

Now we know that Miriam the advice lady is actually a competant hacker. No other person would provide such complete advice that gets to the core of the issue.

It is also hard to believe that she is female.....
