[1] Posted on his blog, Unclaimed Territory, 20 July 2006: "I've read repeatedly that I'm a closeted homosexual and even that I sued to keep my sexual orientation a secret. And needless to say, a central part of the ad hominem attacks from pro-Bush bloggers has now become a homophobic concentration on such matters. I've been openly gay for 20 years."
