Dr. Ruth Westheimer, the 80-year-old New York psychologist who rose to prominence in the 1980s with her live radio call-in program, Sexually Speaking, will pen a 300-word column for The Erickson Tribune, the monthly newspaper with three million elderly readers.
Proposed topics for the column, called “Dr. Ruth On…” include “advice for grandparents when their grandchildren start to date” (You listening, Sarah Palin?), “tips for seniors who are looking to start dating again; insight into how relationships between parents and their children change as the parents age; advice for widows and widowers; etc.”
If this goes well, maybe Dr. Ruth can jump to AARP and make an even bigger audience queasy.
