Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is NOT working

Chelsea Green author Cholene Espinoza (Through the Eye of the Storm, 2006) will be on 60 Minutes this Sunday (December 16th) as a key figure in the program’s lead story (reported by Lesley Stahl) on the military’s policy “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

Espinoza, who is part of The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, a group of former military members dedicated to the policy’s repeal, was the second woman to fly the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft in the U.S. Air Force. She logged more than 200 hours of combat time and was awarded the Air Medal and Aerial Achievement Medal for her service. She graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in 1987. She was selected to be a jet instructor pilot in 1988. She trained pilots from all over the world, including the United States, the Middle East, and South America.
Excerpts are already on the 60 Minutes website. The program airs at 7 p.m. EST unless there is a football game. It shows how ridiculous the policy is at Stahl interviews several active-duty soldiers. Hmm, I guess that policy is really being equally enforced, right?

Watch and spread the word!

Slack and Taut: Defining a System’s Resilience

A resilient future (or a resilient present, for that matter) needs to be slack, not taut. What do we mean? Core to the concept of a Lean Economy is understanding the need to move toward a “slack” market rather than one that is “taut.” When British economist David Fleming died unexpectedly in 2010, he left […] Read More
