  •  Patrick Murphy (5+ / 0-)

    is one of my heroes.  I am a gay disabled Vietnam veteran.  I have worked for the right of gays and lesbians to serve openly in the US military for decades.  I knew Patrick Murphy was a uniquely talented person the first time I saw him on C-Span.  He is truly my brother and I admire him so very much for his major role in getting DADT repealed and for his Progressive politics.  Bravo Patrick Murphy.

      Seeing him lose is simply heartbreaking.  If there is one saving grace, he did manage to get DADT repealed.  And btw, thank you for your service.  I'm a gay law student and I cannot tell you how many of those military cases I have read (all of them going against gays and lesbians) that just totally depressed me.

        and your choice of career.  Unlike many, I have mostly great praise for those who make law their profession.  My undergraduate degree is Pre-Law/Political Science.  I applied to Northeastern School of Law in the early '90's.  I was interviewed but did not have quite a high enough LSAT score (competition was tough).  I have since  won a personal lawsuit and have successfully appealed a VA "Service connected Disability" denial all the way to the Federal Appeals Court with the help of a fantastic Pro Bono Law Group in Washington D.C.

        I wish you success and personal and professional satisfaction in your career.
