I couldn't possibly care less about anybody's sexual orientation but good for him.

Same here. I'm ready for the day this isn't news.

Could have been today if it hadn't been posted here.
I saw this earlier and thought better of posting because "who cares"?

Are there people that really didn't think of this news prior to the year 2000?

While folks clamor to be the one saying 'I don't care' the loudest,

I'm wondering why the P-G removed the story.

The headline mentioned 'troubling times', and that McClatchy 'discusses related and controversial issues'. Click on it, and you get:


December 31, 1969 7:00 pm
This story has expired.
First Published September 23, 2012 11:12 am

Did the P-G story contain issues not covered elsewhere?

According to this article on Deadspin, a NY Times article quoted McClatchey as saying that he came out to his family around the time he was considering buying the Pirates because someone who was unhappy with his purchasing the club threatened to out him if he didn't back out:

I pretty much knew he was gay and like most others didn't care. Good for him for coming out. It can't be good to live with a secret like that.

You might be the only one here who thinks there's something inappropriate about Dan's screen name.
