Court of Appeals heard arguments yesterday in a case testing the U.S. policy on gays in the military — the so-called "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. It allows gays and lesbians to serve so long as they don't volunteer information on their sexual orientation or engage in homosexual acts. The Justice Department is appealing a ruling last year that overturned the policy based on the first and fifth amendments.
