LETTING THEM SERVE OPENLY
Something like 75% of Americans now believe gays should be allowed to serve openly in the military, just as blacks and women now can’t (those were big steps, too). For those interested, here is an NPR feature on 104 retired admirals and generals calling for an end to the ban (represented by one from Mississippi).
I wouldn’t have seen this movie based on the trailer or the description, but the IMDB audience score was so high, I gave it a shot. WOW. And based on a true story.

Quote of the Day
If a man is called to be a streetsweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, 'Here lived a great streetsweeper who did his job well.'~Martin Luther King, Jr.
