Don’t ask, Don’t tell


The news that Jim Nabors married his long-time partner in Seattle lately is a sign of the sea change when it goes to acceptance of gays in our culture. I’m happy that, in a society that needs all the love it can get, he and his partner can finally make their love known to all.

Gomer Pyle always had a smile on his face, and his “aw shucks” nature may or may not be an extension of Jim Nabors’ personality, but either way I’m happy that the man who created this role is able to finally make official what’s been true in his life all along.

I’m also happy that an 82 year-old can make news without having to die first.
