Link After 19 years of service, Major Margaret Witt was booted out of the Air Force Reserve based on an anonymous tip. A US District Court judge refused to reinstate her, saying that it's not illegal to have homosexual sex. The military begs to differ...

(Link) A company that bills itself as "the world's largest job search engine" has added a new search category -- gay-friendly companies. With anti-discrimination laws a patchwork over the US, this could weed out the good from bad quickly on your next job hunt.
