I’m a little late on this, and Andy has pretty much covered it, but in case anyone hasn’t heard Bill Gates bailed out PlanetOut, to the tune of $26.2 million. That’s great, Bill. Honestly, I could kiss ya. Even if you’re not the richest man in the world anymore. (Besides, you’re better looking than that Carlos Slim Helu who’s got you beat by billions.) And, as for all those times I shouted “Whose d***k to I have to s***k to get my computer to work?!”, back when I used Windows? Let’s just forget about that, shall we? That is, unless you’re coming out of the closet as a … liberal.
Oh. Wait. Nevermind.
So pucker up, Bill At his rate, I might even forgive you for going neutral on gay rights, and just in time for the Washington state gay rights initiative to fail by one vote (since it passed a year later), and for hiring Ralph Reed, and even for contributing to Tom DeLay (or to the charity he used as a source of soft money political contributions). Ew. OK. Maybe not that last one. It kind leaves a bad taste in my mouth.
