Willie: People Are People

Abby Zimet

Here's the inimitable Willie Nelson and his contribution to the gay marriage debate: "It's ridiculous to me that this is something we're having a conversation about in this day and age." More from the almost-80-year-old Nelson, who once covered “Cowboys Are Frequently, Secretly Fond of Each Other," in Texas Monthly.

"I've known straight and gay people all my life. I can't tell the difference...
But I'd never marry a guy I didn't like."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
