If an ECG had been done on me earlier this morning before the vote it probably would have looked like this picture! Let's hope for a better legislative year in 2011. I don't think my poor heart can take another one like 2010.
As for DADT, I am no fan of the repeal but it is a done deal now. It is time to sort out once and for all if gays will be able to serve openly and successfully in the military. Many of our finest troops are gay and they deserve a chance. But if this fails the damage to the military will be immeasurable. I hope our leaders realize this and are prepared to shoulder the consequences.
