it's true. i don't really agree with reasoning the repeal of don't ask don't tell with needing homosexual geniuses in the army, because i don't believe in the army. but allan turing is an incredible historical figure and really, really interesting. if you don't know much (or anything) about allan turing you should read "turing and the universal machine: the making of the modern computer" by jon agar. allan turing was not only a genius, he was basically a human time machine.
