    I hadn't realized Furnish was so much younger (48) than Elton (63). When I'd heard a while back they were trying to adopt, I thought it was a bad idea because of age reasons. I still have some concerns re: age, but less so now.

    A surprisingly normal combination of names. :)

    That was my first reaction, as well. My father's great uncle married some younger (40 something) woman, when he was in his late 60's. They had 2 kids, the great uncle was quite proud of his abilities :D. But, he died when the oldest was 6 and the woman died a year or two later, so two young orphans :(.

    And he shall be Levon. He shall be a good man. :) Love this story! Been an Elton fan for years and he seems so happy with David. :)

    I saw that and could not believe it. They weren't making out or anything on the cover, for goodness sake. I don't even know if they were touching! I am not sure if a child would even think twice after looking at that cover.

    Well now that it is covered up you can be sure every kid who goes through that store is going to sneak a look. Great way to draw attention to something that most people wouldn't have even noticed.

    Exactly - kids always loving doing what they are told not to!! And do people really think looking at a couple of guys holding a baby is going to turn someone gay :confused: So stupid :blah:

    I just saw the covered cover on the View....how ridiculous, a lot of people might not have noticed as it was, now a lot of people will be peaking trying to see what's covered up....and hopefully realize it's not a big deal at all.

    I hate censorship.

    P.S. I have the magazine, it's a very nice article & they seem estatic with their new baby. I wish the new little family the best and am looking forward to seeing Elton in concert next month!

    Lucky you! He's not playing in Vancouver :mad: but I've entered a contest to go see him in Victoria. I did see him live once before in the Face 2 Face tour with Billy Joel, and it was one of the best concerts I've ever been to.
