You donít necessarily have to be in the Senate to understand, you know, how it shapes the country. Ö the Internet is aware of John McCain.

The article doesn't mention it, but the Coast Guard has the same policy.

Dang, I was hoping for a couscous recipe.

Iíve said before, and Iíll say it again: Support Donít Ask, Donít Tell, and youíll save gay and lesbian lives.

Our military has absolutely nothing to do with protecting our nation or making us safer, quite the opposite. The US military carries out wars for political propaganda and war/oil industry profits.

If you oppose our nationís psychopathic wars and militarism, then supporting the ban makes perfect sense. Some unconventional methods are required to deprive the military of the troops they need to carry out these wars, and one of those methods is DADT. Iíve read that as many as 40,000 gay men and lesbians would join the armed forces if the ban were lifted. Keeping DADT in place saves their lives and prevents them from becoming accomplices to our countryís insane lies and war crimes.

@ 1 & 7. I think it's because silicone (unlike metals) doesn't react to the acids in the vinaigrette and (unlike wood or plastic) won't absorb the ethereal oil released by the basil leaves. ECB - thx a ton for this recipe - I know what I'm making tonight!

Heh, you'll be checked now and then for citizenship these days when you drive across the border *out* of the US too.

ICE likes doing this on I-5 south into Tijuana a lot recently--they stop all traffic and ask for papers for everyone, and will haul out anyone who's papers aren't in order.

Wouldn't surprise me if they're doing this at the Peace Arch crossing too.
