Ask, Tell

A few days ago I wrote about the defeat of a bill to repeal the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ban on gays openly serving in the military.

Our legislators rarely get anything right, but Saturday they did when they reversed themselves and repealed DADT.  I congratulate them for coming to their senses.

I particularly applaud three Republican senators from New England -- Scott Brown of Massachusetts and Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe of Maine -- for crossing the aisle and playing key roles in allowing this legislation to avoid a filibuster and allowing this to come to pass.
