“Indeed, many old people themselves are ageist, having spent their lives absorbing the same anti-aging messages as everyone else.” our friend Katharine wrote in the Star-Tribune. http://www.startribune.com/challenging-ageism/451306873/

What a great story! I thought this would be a nice subject for our forum. I'm sure I have several ageist notions I would like to exorcise.

Wow, FRiend, I just saw this! (I really need to start getting out more.  laugh )  How nice of you to mention my story! Writing that one has made me much more aware of how deeply ageism is embedded in our culture.
