Over at his blog Boy Culture, blogger, novelist and magazine editor Matthew Rettenmund has written a long, well-reasoned, compelling piece entitled The Death of "Perez Hilton" which I whole-heartedly suggest you read. It is about Perez, of course, but also about the state of entertainment reporting , internet nastiness, and a possible, long overdue, change in the zeitgeist. You will find it here.
P.S. I just put up that picture of gymnast Marcel Nguyen in order to get your attention.
