The Daily Mail is shocked? Shocked?

Heck, I was probably one of the more naive kids of my generation, and even I knew Jim Nabors was gay. (we didn´t call it that back then, what we did call it is left as an exercise for the student).

At least we know now where he came up with his trademark, ´Shazzam!´ Wonder if he ever hit on Barney when he was just trolling the gas pumps?

He and his friend ate at my family´s restaurant on St Thomas one day years ago. They were on a cruise and stopped in for lunch. My mom swooped in and made his acquaintance. He was wonderfully gracious and they would exchange Christmas cards every year. I still have a pic of him there. It was a huge deal for the family. He´s a great guy.

Everyone always knew it, and honestly no one cared. He didn´t rub your face in it, just lived his life. I think the overwhelming majority don´t care if someone is gay or not, they just don´t like having it rubbed in their faces constantly be overthetop activists.

He kept it private, as sexuality should be. The rest is between him and God and therefore none of my business, since he didn´t push our faces into it.

I´m w/ 14 and 15. Nabors is no activist demanding special treatment, or anything else, he´s just living his life, and I respect that. I´m sure the "marriage" was strictly for financial purposes- blame the tax man. BTW, I believe there is no such thing as gay marriage. Marriage is between one man and one woman.

But, #16, if the purpose of such a so-called "marriage" is so that homosexual partners can leave their estates to one another,
it is not true that they needed to force a change in the very meaning of the word "marriage" to accomplish that goal.

In a way this is a perfect example of why the GOP/RNC is losing ground. For the most part the gay marriage issue should be way down on the "To Do" list of conservatives. Its has been, and rightly so shifted to the states. Add to this the fact that it seems many conservatives like me see it for what it is, a needless distraction. The churches are responsible for allowing government to pry its nose into marriage issue in the first place. The proverbial deal with the devil.

These "issues" are allowing our elected officials distract us from the real issues we all face; the size of government, its run away spending, and its intrusion into our lives.

Until these issues are dealt with, nothing else really matters.

Can´t speak to Maurice (Samantha´s father), but Dr. Bombay is not gay. Or if he is, somebody needs to tell the woman he´s been married to since 1961.

Each one respected the others.

At this late date, 82 year old Nabors now would seem to be using Gomer´s scripted innocent personna to further his own personal political agenda. ...shameless

Last Thursday, Mozilla, the company that´s home to the web browser Firefox, forced the resignation of CEO Brendan Eich. What, precisely, had Eich done wrong? Back in 2008, Eich had donated $1,000 to the Proposition 8 effort backing traditional marriage in California. Dating website OKCupid posted a ban on Firefox traffic, issuing a message to Firefox users instead: "Those who seek to deny love and instead enforce misery, shame, and frustration are our enemies, and we wish them nothing but failure." That ban reportedly prompted the action at Mozilla. Of course, it was the people pushing for Eich´s ouster who were enforcing

If there’s a story involving foreigners, religion, sports, sex, or pretty much anything, you can bet Starnes will somehow show up (on Fox’s web and TV properties or on his delightfully terrible Twitter account) to try and scare fellow evangelicals into believing there’s a war on lowly ol’ Christian American folks being waged either by Muslims, atheists, “seculars,” Hollywood libruls, or “the homosexual agenda.” His shtick can easily be summed up by the titles of his two

At last, one House Republican is ready to use the Constitutional power of the purse to reign in Attorney General Eric Holder’s lawlessness. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Virginia), chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees Eric Holder’s Justice Department will utilize the power of the purse to withhold funds from the Justice Department. Eric Holder has been lobbying the Republican controlled House for a larger budget. Wolf says he will withhold $1,000,000 for every instance of failure for Eric Holder to respond to Wolf’s demands for information. The Constitution vests the House of Representatives with the power of the purse, an enormously effective tool

Clinton ducked, and she did not appear to be hit by the object. She then joked about it. "Is that somebody throwing something at me? Is that part of Cirque de Soleil?" Clinton quipped.

President Barack Obama saved wife Michelle’s skirt from blowing above her head in the wind as they boarded Air Force One today. As the Obamas boarded the plane in Houston, Michelle’s skirt began to vigorously billow in the wind. Barack kindly placed his hand over his wife’s bottom to save her from potentially embarrassing photos. In doing so, the President helped Michelle avoid a fiasco similar to the ‘Marilyn moment’ experienced by the Duchess of Cambridge on Monday when she disembarked her flight in Wellington, New Zealand. The Royal was also famously caught out on a Canadian jet tarmac in 2011, when

WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said. The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits,

Stephen Colbert will soon be the first openly partisan comic with a late night show on network television. It´s just one reason why today´s news that the liberal host of The Colbert Report will take over for David Letterman on The Late Show smacks of culture, not show business pragmatism. Late night hosts must appeal to a wide audience. So poaching a comedian from the niche-friendly world of cable television makes little sense, particularly a figure with a hard-partisan persona. Yes, Colbert plays a "conservative" on his Comedy Central program, but it´s just a pose to mock the right and

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or
