  •  There was an interview (10+ / 0-)

    on NPR a day or two ago with a former NBA player now in, I think, England -- thoughtful, articulate --  and he explained that Collins is smart and thought this through.

     He also said there are plenty of pro players in various sports whose lives and prospects are defined by the fact that they are pro players, and thus they would be antigay.  Not because someone is gay, but because  such a  new category  would add a new dimension to their very narrow world and thus threaten their idea of Self.

    There is no question that there is an unseen world. The problem is, how far is it from Midtown and how late is it open? -- Woody Allen
