Today, I just happened to log on to Twitter during a later than usual lunch. (In other words, I would have missed this on any other more "normal day.") And there in the middle of the stream was a Tweet from long time friend of this blog, Steve Kazee. I have admit I was both pleased and relieved just hear from him. He has been quiet for weeks, and I know it must have been quite the task to stand by and listen to/read all of the speculation surrounding his silence and absence for nearly two months from the show that won him the Tony, Once. He inspires me.
Quite frankly, I don't know how he kept from responding. People are so quick to judge and to outright lie, all under the guise of "knowing someone who knows someone...blah blah blah." The bottom line is - as I ranted about yesterday - a lot of people take such pleasure in others' misfortune and it is disgusting and shameful. The ugliness was way beyond "schadenfraude."
And then I read Steve's message to all of us (can be found a www.stevekazee.com):
