Re "Reynolds, Les applaud Collins' revelation" (Leading off, May 2): Interesting. Two weeks ago the big news was the bombings in Boston. This week's big news is a journeyman no-name NBA player disclosing his sexual orientation.
The combined media -- news, sports and entertainment -- have further lowered their already miniscule standards by shamelessly slobbering all over this man, whose "coming out" should have rated no more than a sneeze on the importance meter.
