pretty amazing effort by Beck and a few hundred others on Bowie rework.
 
You gotta hand it to Beck...   He's got ambition.

Who's left to come out in 2013? At this point should we maybe recognize and be happy for them but maybe not make such a big deal when people come out in what i'll call "liberated" industries -- say fashion designer or anchorperson (or Republican congressman)? As opposed to say an NBA starter or auto worker?  Mitigating of course is that people will happily devour reporting on the 10th anchor.
