As the father of two daughters, I have seen my ranking in the "Most Trusted Dad" category plunge faster than the Chinook helicopter Williams never rode in.
In the days and months to come, much will be said and written about Brian Williams and his first utterances to Matt Lauer on Friday's Today Show about his suspension from anchor chair at the Nightly News.
I watched Brian Williams' interview with Matt Lauer hoping to hear, once and for all, a contrite admission that Williams lied to us all. Repeatedly. And that he was deeply sorry for losing our trust. Expectations were high to say the least.

Michelle has written well and honestly about Indra and the cast of characters who make up the Yogas in the East and the West. She describes how Indra could be variously charming, sympathetic and warm, but also ambitious and ruthless.
After wrapping up that marijuana infused marathon, executive producer Gary Cohen says he's hooked.
These states, with their history of hatred and discrimination, have the audacity to say they are disciples of Jesus and practice the principles of the Bible.
While I absolutely believe that AA is far from perfect, please trust me when I suggest that we would not want to wake up tomorrow in a world without it.
