simpson gets something right

Writing in response to General Peter Pace's stupid comments about the immorality of gay sex, Alan Simpson -- yes, THAT Simpson, the former right-wing Republican Senator from Wyoming -- has some wise words on gays in the military. The gist? It's dumb to keep them out, and bigotry is hurting the military.

Best bit: "...I have come to realize that "gay" is an artificial category when it comes to measuring a man or woman's on-the-job performance or commitment to shared goals. It says little about the person."

Well said.
