Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
The noted sex therapist and author took to Twitter this morning to issue this unusual recommendation:
If u’re single woman, get 1 of the new Microsoft tablets to be announced today. Guys will flock around u to see it.— Dr. Ruth Westheimer
Dr. Ruth has shown her business acumen recently by launching her own wine label — did she strike a deal with Microsoft to endorse the tablets slated to be unveiled today? Not according to her spokesman, who told BuzzFeed she has no relationship to the company. The tweet was just her personal opinion, he said, and reflected no inside information about the tablets — “she doesn’t know any more than anybody else.” Still, at least one fan approves of her idea:
- Iraq's prime minister has ordered the arrest of anti-government protesters who breached Baghdad's fortified "Green Zone" and occupied the parliament building.
- Daniel J. Berrigan, an American priest and poet famous for leading anti-Vietnam War protests, has died at the age 94.
- U.S. President Barack Obama zinged the media and presidential contenders before dropping the mic at his final White House Correspondents' Dinner 🇺🇸
