Cracked bell, whacked policy: DADT uprising travels to Philly

by Jeremy Hooper

We've already told you about Sen. Gillibrand's commitment to Don't Ask Don't Tell repeal. This morning in Philadelphia, U.S. Rep Patrick Murphy (D-PA) brought out the House version of reasoned resistance, standing shoulder to shoulder with the Human Rights Campaign, Servicemembers United, and various discharged soldiers to express their disgust with this thoroughly disgusting policy.

Your thoughts

Sorry that this only vaguely relevant, but the British army magazine is honouring the tenth anniversary of equal opportunity with it's first gay serviceman cover - he's posting(/posted) in the comments if anyone wants to offer congratulations from the USA.

Hopefully DADT won't make it to the eleventh anniversary!
