Dave Barry is in good company with such opinions; company such as Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, alexander hamilton, George Washington and many, many other founding fathers that expressed the exact same warning over two hundred years ago.

Finally he moved to New York and studied at the Manhattan School of Music, where he was signed up by Columbia records to produce his first album.

“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is a common term for the policy about homosexuality in the U.S. military. Club Trigger will be hosting a benefit event with the hope of assisting in the repealing of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy Wednesday, August 19.
