Before heading out the door, I gave my wife a goodbye kiss. Rather than reciprocate, she recoiled. "Ouch. Would you please shave?"
"Meat is something we all understand, and, I might add, enjoy. No one has to shove it down our throats. We want to eat meat. This is exactly how our health care system should operate. Rare, medium rare, medium, well done. That kind of thing. Choices, Matt, choices."
Last Saturday, October 19, running back Cam McDaniel helped Notre Dame beat USC in a 14-10 home football victory. He rushed for 92 yards, a career high for the junior from Coppell, Texas.
Sexual wellness is not defined by how few wrinkles you have or how good you look in lingerie. A healthy sex life is characterized by confidence, security, emotional stability, the dynamics of a relationship and each individual's level of self-discovery.
What I think this Today Show exchange offers us though is the opportunity to talk about the lack of education for young people, as well as for adults around the potential for sexuality to continue pleasurably across the lifespan. Can we have that discussion now?
If we, as a Nation, are to continue to perfect this Union for next generations, engaging in open, honest discourse about our biases when they surface is paramount.

In the coming weeks, this blog will explore the causes (and effects) of the slow, but steady death of Today's domination of morning television. Spoiler alert: It's not Matt Lauer.
It's not surprising that everyone's looking for a scapegoat. Today even lost out to local morning show Good Day New York in local ratings. Ouch. But pointing fingers won't solve the problem.
