I could not care less about Anderson Cooper really. I don’t follow him, and I don’t consider him to a major source of news for me. I know he has a talk show, although I’ve never watched it. I’ve seen enough of him to suggest to myself that he was likely gay. He’s an obviously good-looking fellow and has been very successful in his field.
This morning, Anderson Cooper came out to Andrew Sullivan, a gay commentator to whom I do pay close attention. I certainly don’t find this earth-shaking and don’t expect that very many people will be surprised by this news, but the interesting thing, and Sullivan points it out, as how blase’ the notion of coming out has become for those in the public eye.
