National Coming Out Day

Look, I know I haven't been posting much lately, and that when I have been, I've been posting about sports which, judging by my stats and the dearth of comments, is not a subject that the majority of readers passing through here find all that facinating. I'm not going to promise to lay off the butchier subjects -- the variety and complexity of my many shallow interests will all be on vulgar display here so long as I can help it -- but I do hope when I get back to, let's say, frillier pursuits, y'all will still be around to read and comment.

As for today: it's National Coming Out Day, which I think we should all recognize and support, of course. I feel kind of queasy trumpeting National Coming Out Day considering how long it took me to drag myself out into these glorious open spaces. Today, I think I'll give a shout out to those out high schoolers and teenagers who have the balls to do what some cannot. I admire the hell out of that.

On the utterly and completely other end of that spectrum, can we start up some sort of holiday to encourage certain famous, rumor-dogged Scientologists to stay in the closet for as long as humanly possible? Would that be un-PC? I suppose that's not in the full spirit of the day, huh? Seriously, though, Kelly Preston. You're doing the Lord's work.

And, not ONE mention of the American Steel Industry, Joe? Too good for "Simpsons" references, now? I don't know you anymore.

a) I like the sports posts, but it's not like I have a lot to say about the NFL. You refuse to speak college ball (the Bulls are not what I would call successful anyway), and I doubt you want my opinion unsolicited, so there you go.

b) I had no idea it was National Coming Out Day, but then I'm hardly on the cutting edge of that sort of thing. Or anything really. I wish I had something to come out with, because even if I don't qualify for the official nature of the day, I can certainly appreciate the spirit. Out with your secrets! They will only weigh you down.

c) Try not to discourage the chicks who sign your checks, dude. That's common sense. ;)
