Being somewhat lazy, I have not gotten up to change the channel on the TV, after watching "City Life". On "Democracy Now" the newsreader talked about the Pentagon ending its Don't Ask, Dn't Tell policy. Is the newsreader (Ms Amy Goodman) so ignorant, or the person preparing her copy so ignorant, as to not realize that it was a policy imposed by the US Congress, and ended by the US Congress? Once more the US Congress skates away from being responsible for its actions.
Another interesting point about this transition is that the US Marine Corps is apparently the most aggressive of the Services in terms of moving out to recruit homosexual and bisexual members. For the Marines every mission is to be executed with élan. Law Professor Ann Althouse blogs on this, here.
