A Dad Worth Aspiring Towards

Stephen Colbert is asked by Rookie magazine to answer some questions from their female readers, as part of their "Ask a Grown Man" feature. The result is some thoughtful, humble, and unapologeticaly "Dad"-ish answers to some questions which Melissa and I, as the parents of four daughters, have heard versions of numerous times before (well, except for the second one, thank goodness--our oldest is still isn't 18 yet!). I don't wear glasses, or a nice home office like Colbert here, but I do have a comfortable lumberjack shirt like he does--and hopefully, I can do about as well as he does in the face of the hard, real questions that come with growing up. If you're a parent (or even if you're not), this is definitely worth 10 minutes of your time.
