And, Yes, He Is Gay

The intern who helped save Giffords' life, Daniel Hernandez, becomes an instant role model.  A reader writes:

The hero intern is Hispanic and gay. This means he could be stopped anytime in Arizona and asked to produce proof of citizenship. And, until a few weeks ago, he would have been barred from military service. Hernandez was involved in gay issues and counted the congresswoman as an ally. I would love to see him as Obama's guest at the State of the Union address.

Me too.
