The look on Al Roker’s face was priceless.
I watched with slight amusement as Mr. Roker, the gregarious weatherman on NBC’s Today Show, slowly processed the fact that the Obama Administration would no longer prevent the controversial Plan B drug from being sold to girls younger than 17 without a prescription.
“A little disturbing.” Roker conceded. “I’ve got a 14-year-old daughter and I’m not comfortable with the idea that you just go and buy this. It goes to obviously other issues as well, but I think it kind of almost in a way removes the parent from part of the process.”
Welcome to Real-ville, Mr. Roker. The land where fathers and mothers work tirelessly to provide for our families, strive to pass on healthy lifestyles, and protect our children from those who would do them harm.
