Update: Dan Choi gets to DADT signing, and gets his West Point ring back
In a vivid moment of political theater at a conference last summer, Lt. Dan Choi -- a combat vet discharged from the Army after acknowledging he's gay -- handed his West Point ring to Sen. Harry Reid. The majority leader promised to return it when "don't ask, don't tell" was repealed. After dropping a Twitter hint this week, Choi scored an invitation to President Obama's bill-signing Wednesday... then closed the loop that afternoon in a meeting at Reid's office, where the senator gladly handed him his ring. Story over? Not for Choi: "The next time I get a ring from a man," he tweeted later, "I expect it to be for full, equal, American marriage."
