Kmart CMO Quitting, Will Fight for Gay Marriage Kmart Senior VP-Chief Marketing Officer Bill Stewart is leaving the company to become a full-time volunteer on a campaign to protect gay marriage in California, the company said. The Kmart marketing team will report to Maureen McGuire, chief marketing officer of the chain's parent, Sears Holdings, until the company completes a search for a replacement.

Thank god, SOMEONE is on the case!
It was touch and go for a second, but bless our lucky stars that individuals like Bill Stewart are in existence.
I don't have a problem with gay marriage. Not at all. What I do have a problem with is AdAge's inability to mention whether Stewart is gay himself. They mention he is a member of the board of directors of the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. Which could allude to his sexual preference, but do you need to be a homosexual to be on that board? I would think not.

And really, the entire time I was reading that article, I was looking for the "is he or isn't he?" I didn't give a crap about the KMart/Sears connection. Come on AdAge, give the people what they want! At least Google can step up to the plate. Delivers EVERY time!
