    It's one great step forward to make our laws more humanistic and fair, its another thing to change the hearts of generations of people raised in the old "us and them" order!  Hang in there and keep fighting the good fight, understanding that some change requires a new generation raised in the light of human rights activism from people like you.

      the tip of the spear... there are many we know that have spent time in the military that are very vocal of their support. Our peers, however, tend not to voice their opinions at all. It can be tough but I'm hoping to help make some of these Colonel's wives braver people. Their voices are necessary and I know that at least some of them support Ashely Broadway. Maybe the threat of a lawsuit will help them open their mouths for the good of the cause.

        What a lovely phrase. Given that some RW hate mongers use those words to describe themselves I always enjoy using it in reference to Progressive activities just to watch them do a squirmy double take.

        The tip of the spear can be a lonely place so thank you for your courage in fighting the good fight.
