“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” may eventually be repealed, but in the meantime our country is overlooking a substantial resource of qualified candidates wanting to serve and, perhaps, die for our country. Can we afford to release those who have been trained with taxpayer money, especially in this economy? Should we deny those who want to go to battle, and force others who would rather not? A dilemma for believers in common sense…hugmamma.

"rehashing" is a mess. recycling is ok, if credit's given where credit's due...hugmamma.
“the human connection” by ashley montagu and floyd matson
"Human communication, 'as the saying goes, is a clash of symbols' it covers a multitude of signs. But it is more than media and messages, information and persuasion; it also meets a deeper need and serves a higher purpose. Whether clear or garbled, tumultous or silent, deliberate or fatally inadvertent, communication is the ground of meeting and the foundation of community. It is, in short, the essential human connection."
