From a reader named "Krystal"...

Dearest Arlan,

For the past while you have been a true friend to me,
giving me wonderful gifts sent from the lesbian goddess'
for my informative and entertainment needs.
I must tell you that the only thing online
(other than my comments and such)
that I really check is your blog and
the things you write and dig up.
I was sworn into the United States Army
just the other day and am now getting ready
to leave short notice on March 3rd to start my journey
as an active duty military police officer.
It just hit me as I am getting ready
to log off that I only have a limited amount
of your blog posts left that I can read until I have to leave.
This is terrible and it saddens me greatly
to know that it is only a matter of time.
Sure I can live without MySpace and Facebook
but but but lead a life that doesn't include your blog?!

...imissyoualready. :(

P.S. I really think someone should get a crack-a-lackin on the whole gays in the military thing so that I can at least have someone send your blog print-outs to me via snail mail and help me sleep better at night.

I don't know what to say...makes me feel really happy, humbled and proud? Yep. Thanks Krystal. And we'll see what we can do about those printouts! Anyone wanna volunteer?

Hell yes I'll send some printouts. Yo Arlan, if you send me Krystal's e-mail I'll get in touch with her.

Be strong Krystal. I have been serving Air Force style for the past 8 1/2 years. It gets much better in the real world outside of Basic Training, and AIT.

Krystal - I served for over 5 years and you will not be cut off from the world. In fact, I got even gayer IN the military.

This ain't even a thing. Don't get overly dramatic about it.

I think she's saying that DADT needs to be repealed so that she won't get kicked out for receiving YDLM. They snoop.
