[On the "don't ask, don't tell" policy of gays in the U.S. military] If the 19th Amendment, giving the vote to women, were written today, it would stipulate a policy of "don't ask, can't tell." The registrar won't ask. If he can't tell the difference, the woman gets to vote (as long as she doesn't engage in any female behavior). The Emancipation Proclamation, if written today, would be called "don't run, won't pursue." Truman's executive order integrating the armed forces would stipulate.... Oh never mind, don't ask.
