I briefly considered becoming a screener in August 2002 while still in Minnesota, and I remember wondering about this possible "extension" of DADT into a civilian job then. But fire deparments have gotten over it (but back in the 1970s it was debated when cities started debating bans in employment on sexual orientation, even in the New York Post and Daily News). Maybe taking this story seriously adds fuel to the fire, but Metro Times already did!
Last night, the Town DC held an “underwear party”, bringing back some beach in November. My camera didn’t work right under the lighting of the “reviewing stand”.
Also, I tried to get the pictures of the nearby (unrelated) DC9 club that was in the news. Not sure which one is right.
One more thing: I told a church group this morning that there was a real opportunity to end DADT during the lame duck session, and that ending it would help deal with school bullying (anti-gay and other).
