My Bad


A reader points out that in a blog post yesterday, I somehow missed the fact that the New York Times did indeed identify M. John Berry, the president’s choice to head the Office of Personnel Management, as gay.  I said the Times omitted this, and even implied suppression of that fact.  I was wrong.  I apologize to the Times, and to our readers.  I still think it bears watching just what the Obama administration will do about DOMA and federal employee benefits.  But it would bear watching, given the president’s commitments, no matter what the sexual preference of his appointee to OPM.
