I went to college in NYC for a spell. Went to his place a couple times with hopes of seeing him. Never did though. But, I met him in California when I was about 12. So, I wasn't too disappointed when I got to NYC and never spotted him.

Yes, I'm aware of that. It was a reference to don't ask [if you are a fan of one of the biggest faggot fuck liberal celebrties in Hollwood] and don't tell [us if you are a fan of one of the buggest faggot fuck liberal celebrties in Hollwood]. Hope that cleared that up.
