Hey! What is happening? Is Washington actually going to surprise me and pass the National Defense Authorization Act WITH the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell still in the bill? It seems so! Recent reports are making it look like the bill will come before the Senate with the repeal provision intact, and that there are enough votes to prevent a filibuster by Senator John McCain or others.
I’m crossing my fingers, and looking forward to seeing this discriminatory stain on our national honor fading away, beginning next year.
