   Good point about the word, 'gay.'   Gay was a wonderful word that meant 
light and cheery or happy but now, of course, it has been distorted to mean a 
particular group of people.  I wonder if there is anyway that the media could 
be persuaded to call homosexuals homosexuals and return ' gay' to its 
rightful and proper usage.  Or is it hopeless and this charming word is lost
