Gerald R. Ford, R.I.P.

Gerald R. Ford, born in 1913, was the longest living President, having lived longer than Ronald Reagan by a matter of weeks. President Ford likely owed more a third of his long and blessed life to Oliver Sipple, a Marine, a wounded Vietnam veteran and a gay man.

A fitting tribute to Ford, and Sipple, would be the end of Don't Ask, Don't Tell.
