A passing mention in a New York Times story about Jim Parsons was spreading quickly Wednesday on the Web. The writer notes, “Mr. Parsons is gay and in a 10-year relationship.” The star of CBS’ “The Big Bang Theory” never says a word about it in the story and offers no detail about his private life, nor does he divulge the identity of his partner.
