Infamous provides further insight into Capote’s personal relationships, especially the close and controversial relationship he fostered with one of the two killers, Perry Smith.”

    While reading Judy Shepard’s message, I teared up (1 little tear…I am not a pussy)

    After all these years, her story is still poignant. Her voice, message, and experience from her loss of Mathew still resonates

    Don’t hold your breath waiting for the closet doors to fling open in Washington DC or Hollywood today or any time soon.

    In these moral cess pools, more than anywhere in America, the closet is an enduring and time honored institution.

    Didn’t anyone watch Anderson Cooper last night? The fashions of dictators and Coop in a members only jacket – it ended the show (or did it start National Coming Out Day).

    Wouldn’t it be something if two actors won back to back Oscars for playing the same real life character? Not that interested, hunh? Never mind.
