Some good news

We didn't even know this case was pending, and it's an important one. A federal appeals court ruled yesterday that the government cannot withhold funds from colleges and universities that refuse to cooperate with military recruiters because of the Pentagon's discrimination against gays in the armed forces.

In other words, the feds can no longer punish schools for refusing to allow military recruiters on campus. It's incredible that they ever did so, but then we're talking about the feds here.
