    In high school my sister dated a guy who was closeted.  She had her suspicions, and one day asked him flat out if he was.  He answered honestly that yes, he was, and they broke up.

    I'm not sure if that contributed to it -- I go back and forth on that, given the time lag -- but she had to seek counseling in her freshman year for an eating disorder (anorexia/bulemia) that she has (thankfully) fully recovered from.  She's married now, with a son, and quite happy.

    I have long since -- this happened in the late '70s -- gotten to know many gay people, one of whom is my best friend, and know that coming out, while a bit easier than it was back then, is still fraught with some little anxiety.

    I always did wonder what happened to the guy she dated.  My having met a number of open gay people since then leads me to say I can only hope he too is happily sharing his life with someone special to him.  

    Is it courageous to propose tax cuts but not identify a single tax expenditure to rein in? Is it courageous to target your deepest cuts on the poorest Americans, who vote in lower numbers and provide little in campaign contributions?
