Now that a federal court has struck down "don't ask, don't tell" — for the time being — military recruiters have been told by the Pentagon that they can go ahead and enlist openly gay people. Former lieutenant Dan Choi, one of the most prominent and recognizable critics of DADT, tweeted earlier today that he would head to Times Square to sign up for the Marines. Unfortunately, he was denied ... not because he's gay, though, but because he's too old. Someday, old people. Someday.
