    On the website http://www.wiskit.com/marilyn.html the site creators illustrate a number of times where she was wrong.
    Parade Magazine told the website's author, Herb Weiner, to remove quoted questions from Marilyn as it violates copyright.
    Sometimes, when a reader points out a possible flaw in her logic, she will arrogantly, just say she is correct.
    Her column provokes thoughts.
    Most controversial and famous puzzle she solved was the Monty Hall - Lets Make a Deal.
    Assuming you can select one of three hidden choices with one choice being good and the alternatives not good.
    The contestant makes selection, Monty Hall, who knows where the good choice is reveals one of the two remaining selections as not good.
    Should the contestant keep the original choice or switch to the non revealed unselected choice.
    Marilyn correctly said switching, changes your odds from 1 in 3 to 2 in 3.
    She occasionally will admit to errors.
