  1. If we still have an economy and a creditable republic on Sept 20, it will be something to celebrate.

  2. Having served as a U.S. Air Force Officer under President George H.W. Bush in the pre-don’t ask don’t tell days when being gay was a thought crime I have to say that we’ve come a long way baby.

    Now living my life as an out gay man. Who would have thought. I want to just take a moment to say thank you to the President, Members of Congress who voted the right way, straight allies and the many, many, many LGBT who have worked so hard to make this happen (for those who are T – your time will come too – we’ll keep working). And please end DOMA next!
