Privacy A Lost Art

Dear Editor:

I have always maintained that "The Wave," as a local paper, should feature items of local interest. However I cannot prevent myself from commenting on a wider issue. With the advent of smart phones, Facebook, etc. it seems that privacy has become passé. For many years the private life of people in the public eye was basically off limits to the press. Now it seems that their private life is now a public issue, often of their choice. A college football player yesterday revealed that he is gay - my first reaction is why reveal that? What one does in privacy is his business, not ours. Does he gain some advantage in the draft by telling everyone he is gay? All I care about as a fan is what he does on the field.
