For their club’s big debut this semester, the cadets at the United States Air Force Academy hammered out talking points, printed fliers and hung their logo, a rainbow-colored globe, in their booth in Arnold Hall. Then they held their breath.
On the day known as Blue Rush, when incoming freshmen learn about extracurricular activities, Lydia Hill and Brandon Reams were making history, introducing their fellow cadets to Spectrum, the academy’s first club for gay, lesbian and bisexual students and their straight friends and supporters.

Judge Rules "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Is Unconstitutional
- Judge Virginia A. Phillips of Federal District Court struck down President Clinton's Don't Ask, Don't Tell
(DADT) policy in an opinion
(Scribd) issued late Thursday, ruling on the constitutionality of a complaint brought by the Log Cabin Republicans
(PDF). President Obama's Justice Department has until a September 23 deadline to submit objections to the court regarding Judge Phillips's permanent injunction, which is uncertain given Obama's previous support of his Department of Justice defending the legality of DADT, despite his opposition to DADT in principle.
