I wish a very happy birthday to versatile, skilled and charismatic actor/singer Neil Patrick Harris. I first saw his talent in the 1988 movie Clara's Heart, starring Whoopi Goldberg. She was a half-hour guest on my VH1 talk show. She raved about his young talents. I know folks who know him and, through the years, three things were constantly mentioned about Harris -- his kindness, his talent, his sexual orientation. Now we all know that he's gay and has a partner. We dig NPH as host of the Tony Awards. He makes us laugh as the womanizer, Barney, on the sitcom How I Met Your Mother. I am so glad I'm here to see that kind of a career thrive on TV. It's progress. When I was new in television, back in the early 1980s, that kind of wonderful career just didn't happen.
