Be thankful that you are not Bill O'Reilly's 13 year old daughter. Bill's latest column, about the travails of a dad (obviously Bill) who is attempting to deal with a 13 year old girl, is an occasionally amusing; but, as with anything else connected to O'Reilly, is more than vaguely discomforting. His latest missive details his frustration with a daughter who enjoys all the things that normal 13 year old girls do - like Glee and Harry Potter. So rather than letting the poor kid enjoy being a teen, he has established rules of conduct which include the requirement that the girl learn history so that, I guess, she can participate in highly stimulating intellectual discussions with her father. But what strikes me as troubling is the rule that that "no door in the house is closed unless there is a dressing situation" in order to "discourage Internet chicanery and encourage lively conversation." The girl, who is smart enough to recognize that her dad has no social skills, is annoyed. And that's understandable because other than "dressing situations," she's not allowed any privacy. Ick?
Is Billo looking forawrd to the time his 13 year old laughs in his face and calls him a hack?
Or when he says ‘history books’,he means reading daddy’s rediculous screeds and choice works from Glen Beck?
