Towards an end to Don't Ask, Don't Tell?

A second reason to celebrate this week! A federal court has ruled that in effect automatically discharging someone from the military because they're gay violates the US constitution. While this does not bring down Don't Ask Don't Tell, it does mean that the military must now show that discharging the person is the only way to improve unit morale. 

Hopefully this is a nail in the coffin of this unnecessary and homophobic policy.
