'Nuff said

(Taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes)

'On the battlefield it does not matter who you love. Only the flag that you serve.'

-- U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-Georgia), commenting on yesterday's House OK of a bill to repeal "don't ask don't tell," the 1993 statute that bars gays and lesbian from serving openly in the U.S. armed forces. The House vote was 250 to 175. Still unclear whether the Senate will consider this standalone bill during the soon-to-end term.
