To the Editor:

I would like to say to the men and women who carry the heavy responsibility for defending our nation:

How dare you? How dare you blackmail us? How dare you attempt to destroy the ideals of an institution committed to equality? And then you try to bring an organization still committed to unfairness. Do you honestly think anyone’s going to come to your booth at the job fair with the way you forced your way in? Get real, leaders of the most powerful military in the world.

I assume that the money you so generously give to our medical school must be funding something very important for the health of our nation. Maybe even something to do with our national security. Are you really going to withhold that?

I can’t believe the men and women who defend the American ideals of equality abroad, destroy them at home.
