(AP) A big car bomb in a market in Peshawar, Pakistan kills 50, wounds at least 100.

(Reuters) The father of Najibullah Zazi, the Denver-NY terror suspect is indicted for lying to the FBI.

And, (CNN) On a percentage basis, women are far more likely to be thrown out of the military for being gay than men are.


  • imo, many lesbians are visibily proud of it/not ones to work hard to stay in the closet(many of the ones I know are) and lord knows how that must piss off the Gen LeMays in the ranks...

    Good on em!, I say. Attitude is 98% of every solution...

  • Also, there's an unbacked by data argument that perhaps lesbians might be more prone to armed forces service, while gay men might not be at the same levels.

    Maybe that's just me stereotyping.

  • I know that, but I know four women who served in the military in the last 10 years, and 3 of the four are gay. (Two are a couple.)

    So, you'll understand why I jumped there.
