Among the many roles that I fill, the one I’m most proud of is being a dad. Dads don’t get the respect that they deserve in our society. The media depicts them as absent, bumbling idiots, clueless, soulless or absent. Yeah, I said absent twice.

So, when I see a dad present in a movie or a commercial where he’s basking in a positive light, I take notice. I go so far as to cheer it and celebrate it.
