This humble blogger cannot possibly improve on this posting by occasional commentor Patrick of Gryphmon's Grumbles.
This is a golden opportunity for the gay community to both deal with issues of the present and with the past. As Gryph so eloquently puts it, this is an opportunity to honor those who have served in the military, both gay and straight, as well as to provide a unique insight into the gay experience in and with the military in a city that arguably is the symbolic center of the gay community.
Now, it's just wasted.
Go, read, think, debate. GayPatriot weighs in here, as does Lime Shurbet.
Then, take action. Gryph has kindly provided the email addresses of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors so that you may voice your concerns (please do it politely and respectfully).
Thanks, Gryph. Let me know if you'd like to be added to the blogroll here.
UPDATE: I never thought I'd be saying this, but you go, DiFi!
