Oh, Bristol and Levi are getting married, but should we really care?

Oh, Bristol and Levi are getting married, but should we really care?

SEX MATTERS

I overslept yesterday morning and paid a price. Usually I get up at 6:30, catch the opening of the TODAY Show, and am out the door for a run. Not yesterday: I walked into the kitchen and flipped on the TV just in time to catch the 7:30 segment on Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston's announced engagement (nice, big ring) and impending marriage.

I didn't intend to start my day with this "exclusive" from Us Weekly, and for a moment I thought I'd tuned in to a story from The National Enquirer rather than NBC.

Then I remembered that Gail Collins had indicated last week in her column, "My Boyfriend's Back," that a reconciliation was imminent, and she wisely warned other young women, "Don't have unprotected sex with your boyfriends, girls. Look what he might turn into," i. e. someone so taken with celebrity that he will do anything to make sure he remains in the spotlight. However, she never went so far as to talk engagement or impending marriage.
