Matt Bomer to says farewell to Neal

white collar final season promo

I’m almost ashamed to admit that we have been guilty of neglecting QL darling Matt Bomer.  Nate and I are big fans of the openly-gay actor and it was Nate in fact who turned me on to White Collar.  We’ve been good Bomer-ites and have religiously kept up with the show for sure.

All Eyes Turn to the U.S. Supreme Court

On Monday, the United States Supreme Court was scheduled to discuss seven petitions from five different states urging the Court to decide the constitutionality of state laws excluding same-sex couples from marriage on a nationwide basis.

The latte salute seen ’round the World

latte_salute

Leading the charge of the Light (Headed) Brigade, Steve Doocy of Fox’s Fox and Friends waxed not-very-poetic, but rather apoplectic, about the “latte salute”.  Upset that President Obama saluted the Marine guards while holding a cup in his hand, (at least it wasn’t a dog, right?) Doocy made his own gaffe.  Describing the scene as President Obama stepping off of “Air Force One”, he firmly planted his own foot in his mouth.
