Despite what our Republican Arizona state senator John McCain says, today’s a very happy day. Any policy that discriminates against, persecutes, and dishonors people for no good reason is a bad thing, and its repeal is a good thing— good not only for gays & lesbians in the military but also for their fellow soldiers. Heck, I think it’s good for our country and the world, because it fosters an atmosphere of maturity and civility and sends the right message to the world that America is indeed the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Incidentally, I took this photo last night at AZ88, a restaurant bar in the Scottsdale Civic Center, after watching Handel’s Messiah at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts. I had no idea how timely it would be the very next day!
