    Can someone tell me WHY this is such a push-button topic now?

    Don't ask. Don't tell. Sorry.

    That has been around for several years. Why is it such a topic on both the Democratic and Republican presidential debates?

    I didn't know it was a "push-button" topic these days, but since you asked.

    Retired general John Shalikashvili -- the man who pushed "don't ask, don't tell" -- changed his mind earlier this year on the policy, and it has bubbled back to the surface.

    Maybe the candidates are SportsJournalists.com lurkers who read your ass-fucking epic and as a result are rethinking their positions on the issue.

    You don't remember your own made-up story?

    Brown is the new blue, at least for anal-sex threads.

    Nothing was made up.
    Now as for Gays in the military, I don't see what the problem is.

    Mr. Reed says he served in the 82nd as a commo platoon leader. He, by association, has served in an infantry unit, so I'm calling bullshit on this observation.

    Not saying I disagree with him, but just calling bullshit on this observation.
