Brass Ones

More U.S. military officers would be willing to reinstate the draft than would allow gay and lesbians soldiers to serve openly.

Just to repeat that: More U.S. military officers would rather reinstate the clunky conscription service that, thanks to Vietnam, now goes hand-in-hand with fears of Junior being dragged off to die in some hellhole in the minds of most Americans, rather than let gay and lesbian soldiers serve openly like they do in Canada, the UK, and Israel, among other places, without their militaries going completely critical.

It looks like the best chance of Don't Ask, Don't Tell's death may come at the hands of a body outside the military. We can only hope it dies soon.
