Yes, Al Roker “sharted” at the White House. He admitted it, the Internet rehashed it for weeks, and the whole nation spent way too long thinking about his bowels. It’s time to let it go. What better way than by heading to Books & Books (265 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables) and meeting Roker in person? The Today Show weatherman is more than a mere poop joke. He has an Emmy. He’s shaken the hand of Joe Biden. And yes, he’s written a book, Never Going Back: Winning the Weight Loss Battle for Good. Roker wrote Never “to inspire others to lose the weight they’ve always wanted to lose, keep it off for good, and regain their health.” OK, so Roker isn’t a health expert; his name alone is enough to make the New York Times bestseller list. Soon we’ll all forget about the unfortunate inaugural incident and focus on our national wellness. Everybody wins.
