We Always Gotta Choose: Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal & The Dead DREAM (Act)

It was a big political weekend for justice-seeking people this weekend. With big votes on the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy and the DREAM Act taking place on Saturday, analysts are still making sense of the not-so-lame-duck session. But, in the meantime, The New York Times offered perspective on the likely impact of the DREAM Act's failure on President Obama's immigration reform agenda, and MetroWeekly shared a concise, helpful history of DADT.

The Modern American is celebrating the repeal of DADT, which we've tracked in recent months, here and here, but we hope that the political season is not so virulently anti-immigrant that some positive legislation can pass next term.
