A few words from Bill O'Reilly
Today, I offer you a verbatim excerpt from "The O'Reilly Factor for Kids: A Survival Guide for America's Families" by Bill O'Reilly and Charles Flowers:
I didn't have sex until I was twenty years old! Can you believe it? I was kind of a shy guy around girls, and I had absolutely no "moves."
At the time, I thought I was some kind of loser. But then I started to see the consequences of other people's choices. Some of my more aggressive friends got girls pregnant. Some married those girls. Most of those marriages were disasters, and the children suffered. More than one of the guys I grew up with ruined his life, and the lives of others, because he had irresponsible sex.
That still happens today even though abortion is more common. And abortion has its consequences too--many girls who have abortions suffer terrible guilt their whole lives. The bottom line is that this sex thing is big-time serious.
Looking back, I was darn lucky I had no moves. I had to wait for sex, and I'm glad.
I have typed and deleted a half dozen comments about that piece of text in this space. None of them worked. It is not common for me to have nothing to add. Hence, that is all I shall note.
I have nothing to add.
Mr. O'Reilly has spoken for himself very adeptly.
