If Gen. McChrystal Had "Come Out" to Rolling Stone, He'd Be Gone. . . .

If, rather than berating his commander-in-chief in an internationally read magazine, General Stanley McChrystal had simply said he was gay, then he would have been subject to discharge from the military under existing law. He would have been subject to discharge even if he replaced his criticism with praise and respect -- and then said "I'm gay." I offer this thought for people to consider as they debate military protocol and the merits of dismissing McChrystal.

It also ties in really nicely with that other post you wrote about who gets second chances in this country.
