    Wow, I had no idea. We need more people like James Randi in this world. He calls out all the psychics and mediums who "talk to the dead" for what they are: con men (and women) just misleading the heartbroken to make a quick and easy buck.

    Based on the thread title, I was gonnna say, "Isn't that an oxymoron?"

    As old and crotchety as he is, though, The Amazing Randi has always been a very cool guy, devoted to very cool stuff.

    I had no idea the Amazing Randi was gay.
    However, in my mind he will always be a Skeptical hero first.

    A magician is hired to do a party for an unruly obnoxious boy..
    "Show me a trick ! show me a trick !"."More ! more"!.the boy kept nagging..
    The Magician took him to a corner ..
    "Turn around" he told the kid...
    "Now close your eyes.. i want you to concentrate"..he whispered standing behind the boy..
    "Can you feel my thumb up you butt?"..Asked the Magician..
    "Why yes i can!"..said the boy ..completely stoked.
    "Open your eyes but do not turn around"..Sounded The Magician..
    The boy opened his eyes to find The Magicians thumbs in front of his eyes..
    "Ta-Dahhhhhh!!!"..Anounced the magician..
    "This is the best trick ever!!"..Shouted the boy in excitement..icon_eek.gif

    "...only due to the fact that I never got around to it...."?

    I get that not every gay person has a personal obligation to be publicly out in the world.

    But this guy spent his life debunking other people from inside his closet and only came out in fortune & fame once it was made safe by the efforts & sacrifice of others. My initial reaction is a sense of huge disappointment.
