Studio Statesboro Vodcast - Thursday July 24, 2008
DEAR DR. GOTT: My father needs to stop driving. He is 85 years old, and his reflexes aren't as keen as they used to be. He, in my opinion, doesn't meet the requirements of a good driver and is unable to focus on most of what is going on around him while driving (i.e., other drivers and pedestrians).
DEAR ABBY: My half-brother, "Jace," and I had a complicated childhood. My father had an explosive temper and a disdain for children in general. He was abusive, and our mentally ill mother was absent during his rages.
