Out and Proud
”As a gay man,” I can say, EW, thank you! ”The New Art of Coming Out” validates why I have been a subscriber since issue No. 1. And thank you to the stars showing everyone, especially the youth of America, that being gay is just a small part of who you are. Here’s to a future of being out, rather than having to come out.
Maybe I’m ahead of the times, but as far as who’s gay, who might be, and who’s not: Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn. And until others stop giving a damn about people’s private inclinations, it’s going to remain the Big Deal that it isn’t.
Please Drink Responsibly
Your PSA on dehydration (News and Notes) made my day! I can only imagine how hard it must be for a celebrity to lug around a refillable container for water, let alone a bottled water. We plebeians of the world are accustomed to public water fountains, tap water, and even reused containers of bottled water to help us stave off dehydration. Let’s all pray this celebrity trauma is not contagious.
The Toast of Television
I agree with many of Ken Tucker’s Emmy choices, like Bryan Cranston and Timothy Olyphant (”Our Dream Emmy Nominees”), but what about the wonderful Alan Rickman for PBS’ The Song of Lunch?
Don’t forget about Southland, the best-written and -acted police drama since Homicide: Life on the Street. Michael Cudlitz, Shawn Hatosy, and Regina King deserve nods too.
