There's nothing really new here, but let's just take a moment to bask in Willie Nelson's great interview with Texas Monthly about gay marriage.
Texas Monthly: You're closely following the Supreme Court's consideration of gay rights and same-sex marriage.
Willie Nelson: I am. And it's ridiculous to me that this is something we're having a conversation about this in this day and age. I thought it was something that was settled a long time ago....
TM: You've been a supporter of LBGT issues over the years. Outspoken even.
WN: I never had a problem with any of it. I've known straight and gay people all my life. I can't tell the difference. People are people where I came from.
TM: But where you came from was small town Texas in the thirties and forties. Was Abbott more forward-thinking than we give it credit for?
WN: We were a lot like New York City. [laughs] With shorter buildings.
Well, all right.
