Re: Friction at DC

First, good on Sprouse.

Second, I don't know how I feel about petitions either, but I personally no longer buy anything with Card's name on it. I don't want my money going into his pocket so he can continue to found organizations I loathe. Freedom of Speech doesn't mean Freedom from Consequence.

Third, I don't know why DC didn't see this PR experience happening.

I don't think that's what killed it. It was very well known before that; they even joked about it. The show had run its course.
I think Ellen is so popular because she isn't all about her sexuality. It's just an aspect -- a mostly private aspect -- of her life.
OT, but: She's about as private with her sexuality as any normal celebrity (yeah, that is sometimes a contradiction in terms.) She and her wife go out to public events all the time, like anyone else. So, I don't think it's that she's private about it, it's that she treats her marriage as the thing it really is: normal, like everyone elses.
