Ask (*but with a tentative question mark). Tell (*but you're best off in a whisper)

by Jeremy Hooper

When this writer was young, there was a hotline students could call to see if school was closed on a particular day. On snowy nights, I'd dial that thing until my fingers were raw, hoping with the fire of a thousand incomplete homework gods that the message would've been altered since my last call two seconds prior. Everything could change in instant, and it mattered greatly to know for certain whether the following morning would be filled with boring ol' long division or the joy that is Plinko.

Perhaps the military should set up one of those lines for LGB soldiers, so that they too will be able to gauge the ever-changing policy currently governing their careers:

In a sign of the wide-reaching impact of U.S. District Court Judge Virginia Phillips's injunction halting enforcement of the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, Pentagon spokeswoman Cynthia Smith today wrote that "[r]ecruiters have been given guidance, and they will process applications for applicants who admit they are openly gay or lesbian."
