This blog has more of a professional slant, but every once in a while my personal feelings seep in -- and why not?!


With all this recent discussion about gay marriage and gay adopting, I want to put my two cents in. 


What hetero character in what movie said, “It’s okay if gays want to marry. Let them be as miserable as us.”  Outside the legal and tax benefits, I just don’t get why people want to marry. Do they really need that piece of paper to validate their love?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for equal rights, diversity, and letting people do whatever makes them happy.  I’m even up for celebrating love. But marriage?  No.

In Michael Liberatore’s recent article he busts the myths of marriage. It can be found in the 24th February issue of Frontiers magazine.  It’s called, “We desperately want what we haven’t got. But is what we haven’t got really worth getting?

Why people insist on having biological kids today makes no sense to me. It’s such an ego-satisfying, selfish act.  There are ALREADY too many unwanted kids.  Adopt, people, adopt!

I consider parenting THE most important ‘job’ in the world.  I only wish some parents looked at it that way. Too many parents don’t know how to parent and we are raising idiots. In the ideal world, I’d have people take a state board exam to get licensed to become parents.

For me, what makes me happy is no marriage and no children. There's my 2 cents worth.

This cat makes the organ zing!  

Interviewed Cameron Carpenter last week and I'm still convinced that he's Karen Carpenter's secret love-child.  The man has talent galore.  Think Liberace with a twist of  Rudolf Nureyev and pepper in some kd lang.  

Presently traveling worldwide, Cameron is packing theatres with his concerts.  Catch this man if he comes near you.  You'll be delightfully entertained and have a cherished memory.  His recent CD release,  Revolutionary has been nominated for a Grammy.  

I enjoyed our interview, Cameron.  It was nice to be "Close To You..."
