Cursed by a Slow News Day
Apparently, Clay Aiken is gay. I think most of us already knew this, and those who didn’t suspected, or should have suspected. I love the guy, rooted for him on “American Idol,” laughed at him in “Spamalot,” and wish him nothing but the best in his post-closet life.
What bothers me is how is this news? Haven’t we moved past this kind of stuff? If tomorrow is also a slow news day, will Barack Obama announce he’s an Africa-American? Again, how is this news?
