I have too many pages of "Pending" books when I flip through my Kindle to NOT be grateful for ebooks! ;-)

The only thing religion has to do with marriage is the ceremony. But what recognizes you as married is the state. So religious folk with their ~traditional marriage~ can get out.

Hot topic today. But CEO John Browne, Former Chief of BP has been through it already. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/28/business/john-browne-former-chief-of-bp-on-being-a-closeted-executive.html
 
On Apple CEO Tim Cook's alleged homosexuality.

Reports are circulating that Apple CEO Time Cook was "outed" as gay by a CNBC co-anchor: http://dlvr.it/686dn3 

I've heard this rumor before and I have to make the following points: 

1. People's private lives should be private. Tim Cook and every other business leader should be judged on the performance of their companies and not on what happens in their minds or bedrooms, and therefore: 

2. Whether Tim Cook is straight or gay shouldn't matter to the press or the public, and we should respect his and everyone's right to choose whether to talk about their sexual identity, gender identification and so on, and: 

3. The bottom line is that we shouldn't care about or discuss any aspect of Tim Cook's or Larry Page's or Larry Ellison's or Jeff Bezos' or Marissa Mayer's sex lives. It doesn't and shouldn't matter. And exploiting the prurient whispers about business leaders to get viewers and readers is shameful and tawdry and that's what needs to be outed. 
 
Just my $0.02.
