      On what do you base your statement that gay active duty service members were “allowed” to march in civilian clothes last year? Allowed by whom? DADT was still on the books at that time—though embargoed from enforcement a couple of weeks later. Thanks.

      Correction. My mistake: occuring in July, the San Diego parade last year was after the court embargo. But I’d still like to know the origin of the assertion about being “allowed” to march. Thanks.

      Gee. There was an official military contingent last year. So they were officially sanctioned by the military. It was a big deal last year. So there – “allowed”… But the official contingent of active duty military personnel wore cIvilian clothes. Google it. It’s there.

      @F Stratford:

      Groan. Their only “official” sanction came from the parade organizers, the same way they “sanctioned” any other group that met their entrance requirements such as “dykes on bikes.” Doesn’t mean the participation by the latter had any “official sanction” from Harley-Davidson.

      Actually the DOD issued a written statement in regards to uniforms being worn in these parades. The DOD allowed it.

      Ahora mismo ?nicamente resta desear que la empresa Apple haga lo esperado y termine su esperado
      aparato para satisfacer las necesidades de lo que
      se quiere con este m?vil y cuando por fin lo tengan en su mano disfr?tenlo
      todo lo posible porque no alcanzar? el tiempo para usar todas sus opciones y usos que har?n
      su rutina sensiblemente m?s sencilla y entretenida.
