Sometimes It Gets Worse

In a heartbreaking counterpoint to the end of DADT, 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer, above, committed suicide on Monday:

The Rodemeyers said that Jamey's first three weeks of high school seemed to be going better and that there was "no indication that he was in pain." But upon finding him dead, they admitted that he likely just got better at hiding the abuse he faced. "He fooled everybody," said Jamey's father. "He put on a brave face and I wish he wouldn't have."

Dan is crushed.
