Myron Rolle, the FSU football player who won a Rhodes Scholarship, and was likely to be a top round draft pick, decided on the Rhodes. He'll be getting his Master's in Medical Anthropology at Oxford. Score one for anthropologists!!

V. Gene Robinson, the openly gay Episcopalian bishop, has been asked to give the opening prayer at the start of the week of inaugural events. This helps counter the decision to have Rick Warren -- the homosexual marriage is equivalent to incest and pedophilia...and...only people of faith (which faith???) should be allowed to hold public office Rick Warren -- give the invocation for the inaugural address.

Bye bye "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." A goofy, flawed policy whose shelving is long overdue. Maybe having a third "group" in the army will help take some of the pressure off women as well - the more diversity, the more commonplace and acceptable it becomes (one hopes). Regardless, it's death is welcome.
