I'M SURE THAT when most people heard that Anderson Cooper was gay, they thought, "Uh, duh. " But Cooper, the ubiquitous newsman and talk-show host, has now officially come out, via the blog of his longtime friend Andrew Sullivan at the Daily Beast. "The fact is, I'm gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn't be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud," Cooper wrote in an email to Sullivan. He went on to say that he has no desire to be an activist. And the Internet reverberated with more sounds of "Uh, duh. " Cooper was one of those celebrities who everyone who cared about such things already knew was gay. In May 2007, Out magazine ran a piece by Village Voice gossip columnist Michael Musto about openly gay celebrities who refused to come out to the public . Cooper was on the cover alongside actress Jodie Foster, who talked about her longtime girlfriend publicly for the first time shortly after the story ran. Sullivan was prompted to ask Cooper after reading Mark Harris' excellent piece in last week's Entertainment Weekly about a new breed of "out" celebrity and how public homosexuality is no longer a death knell for the famous and pretty.

WHO CAN RESIST a woman in uniform? Probably a lot of people when that woman is Madonna and the uniform she's wearing belongs to the Boy Scouts, for whom there is no "Express Yourself" merit badge. Madonna, of course, is trying to change that, so she dressed in a uni and called on the Boy Scouts to lift its ban on gays, while also calling for a "revolution" to prevent discrimination and abuse of the gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual community. Speaking Saturday night at the GLAAD Media Awards, Madonna joked that she wanted to become a part of the Boy Scouts herself, but was turned down, even though she had the qualifications.

God's creations Re: "No 'gifts from God,' " letter, Nov. 4: The writer smugly assures us that "God didn't create homosexuals, lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgendered and queer people. " He chastises a previous writer who sees these people as (gulp!) "gifts from God" for not knowing Genesis 13:13. Well, how about Genesis 1:27: "God created humanity in God's image"? Not God created those who are straight, but God created all of humanity, every human ever born. So every person is indeed a gift of a loving and creative God. And would the writer please present the psychological journals where I can learn that, despite all the evidence to the contrary, "these people chose this orientation"?

YESTERDAY MORNING, at the start of "Live With Regis and Kelly," Regis Philbin told co-host Kelly Ripa and his audience that he was retiring from the show sometime near the end of the summer. Aw, Reege, couldn't you give us a little time to recover from Larry King leaving the air? "I don't want to alarm anybody," Reege said, fearing the National Enquirer would start fast-tracking his obituary, before making the announcement. "It's been a long time . . . 28 years," Regis said of his current Manhattan-based program.

SHAME ON Donald Sterling, yes. His shame is the sort that never will wash clean. But shame on CNN, too, for letting him hang himself again with his own rope. And shame on us, too, for watching. In the wake of his recent comments that laid bare his bigotry, Sterling this weekend sat down with this public confessor, Anderson Cooper, and vainly tried to punish himself, in the hopes of . . . what? Convincing other NBA owners to lift the lifetime ban and not force him to sell his Clippers?

CHARLESTON, S.C. - On Day 3 of the vigil in front of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, where racial rage crossed paths with godly faith Wednesday night, residents from the city and its suburbs stood in the blazing heat politely answering questions from reporters from across the globe. Between interviews yesterday, the people - black and white - knelt in prayer, wiped tears, left flowers and teddy bears and handwritten signs. Most also pushed back against the conventional wisdom that the slaughter of nine black parishioners at the hands of a deranged young white man would push this Deep South coastal city into racial strife, a la Ferguson, Mo., and Baltimore.

I DON'T BEGRUDGE people who profit from personal experiences. There's often something we can learn from other people's dramas and traumas. Yet there was something upsetting about the swift actions by one juror in the trial of George Zimmerman, who was found innocent of all charges stemming from the shooting death of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. For now, we know this person only by her court designation, B37. She was the first juror to grant an interview, sitting down with CNN's Anderson Cooper in a session that aired the Monday and Tuesday after the verdict.

Good to know some things don't change. Minutes into their season-opening press confab on Tuesday, American Idol 's Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj were at each other's throats, reviving their headline-making, if paper-thin, faux feud from last year. Asked about their fight, Minaj said, "We're professionals. Have you ever had an argument with someone you've worked with?" Carey looked displeased. "This was sort of one-sided," she said. "No, it wasn't," Minaj snapped. (Don't you wish we could send them up to their rooms?
