A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- A decorated sergeant and Arabic language specialist was dismissed from the U.S. Army under the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, though he says he never told his superiors he was gay and his accuser was never identified.

The Code Breakers

Led by the brilliant Alan Turing, inventor of the computer, the codebreakers of England's cipher-cracking organization, Bletchley Park, were mathematicians, crossword-puzzle fanatics, and other super-brains. For decades what these men and women did at "B.P.," and how they managed to break the Germans' seemingly impregnable Enigma encoding machine, was classified.

One should note that the brilliant Alan Turing, who was instrumental in the allied effort to win WWII and the inventor of the computer, was a homosexual.

This obsession about gays who are doing vital work goes completely against the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Principle.
