The sun is out, the skies are blue, it's not raining cats and dogs, and there's no plague of locusts on the horizon.

Gays who serve in our military, and served our nation honorably, no longer have to lie about who they are. The repeal of DADT finally went into effect at 12:01 AM this morning, passing as if it had never been.

What gives, Brother John (McCain)? What was all the fuss about? Why did we have to kick more than 14,000 personnel out of the armed services based solely on their sexual orientation, after all, just to satisfy your misguided generational hang-ups?

It's a great day for those who can now serve without living a lie, but a bittersweet moment for those unjustly sacrificed simply for being who they are.
