Good news here and here. In the first link, the House votes to revoke the travel ban on AIDS victims by an overwhelming margin (303-115); it now goes to the President's desk. In the second, the House Armed Services Committee held hearings to discuss the continued efficacy of "don't ask, don't tell." No movement yet, but there was bipartisan unity in the ridicule for one Elaine Donnelly:
"We're talking about real consequences for real people," Donnelly proclaimed. Her written statement added warnings about "inappropriate passive/aggressive actions common in the homosexual community," the prospects of "forcible sodomy" and "exotic forms of sexual expression," and the case of "a group of black lesbians who decided to gang-assault" a fellow soldier.
