Eric Massa

...needs help on many levels.

He apparently has cancer and will hopefully beat it.

He apparently has homosexual boundary issues, and will hopefully get rid of them.

It is clear he has big problems when he challenges the media to ask people who know him about his sexuality, and numerous sources detail his odd behavior. Did he want this to emerge this way, or did he really think there was nothing to see?
This should give pause to the people who want to get rid of Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT) in the military. In fact, we should be going the other way. People who demonstrate gay behavior should not be allowed in the military. If it's clear that it is possible, we shouldn't wait for it to happen.

I realize there's a fine line between this and a witch-hunt, so we should have clear standards about behavior-including speech in the military.
