No Longer Filling in the Blank

Charles Nelson Reilly, star of the brilliant Match Game shows of the 70s has died. Obit says he never hid his homosexuality; but I feel like a total dumbass, like I did when I suddenly realized the Village People were gay when I was about 12. How did I not know this? The pipe and the cravat should have been dead giveaways.

Whatever. He + Brett Somers + a half in the bag Richard Dawson = pure comic genius. And still viewable on The Game Show Network.

Are you sure about Roger Ebert? Last I heard he was married to a woman. Was that just a ruse?

Hm, maybe I made that up. Someone told me that a few years ago plus he wrote "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls" so seems like a truism to me. But google turns up nothing so maybe I'm thinking of someone else. Post stands corrected.
