End Of 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' Arrives With Little Fanfare

To those who don't understand, who think that someone's sexual orientation should be easy to hide, just imagine living in a society where giving the impression of having *any* loving relationship would be grounds to get fired. Yes, of course, don't bring up sexual activity at work, but imagine a workplace where no body was allowed to mention that they even had a spouse or significant other, ever. And remember this isn't a nine-to-five for a lot of service members, who live on base or are deployed. LGBT service members get to have a real life now, and can focus on staying alive and getting the job done while they are in harms-way for us, instead of fearing that we will wring them out for their personal lives.

Non-Violent Criminals Are Linked, By DNA, To Violent Crimes

How did they work this out with fingerprinting? You are arrested, they take your fingerprints as a mater of course, no warrant required. I think its fair to apply this to our upgraded technology. Maybe it should be limited to RFLP analysis or other methods that cannot be used to infer private medical information as that technology develops, but I have no problem with this in principle.
