Even away from the internet while out and about news that cloture on DADT repeal was invoked earlier today has reached me. For all the missteps and display of poor organization exhibited by Congress this year, and despite the myriad of bad ideas wafting out of the corridors of power, we can take heart that at least they got this one right.
Formal repeal by the Senate should be early next week and unless the President waffles, our military will cease its most overt form of discrimination soon.
We are now another step closer to living up to our national ideals. Today is therefore a good day in American history.
