Due to a request from Comedy Central, which holds the copyright to "South Park" and all of its characters, Salon has removed the Big Gay Al animation that originally accompanied our special report on gays in the military. We offer our apologies to inconvenienced readers and to our kindred spirits at Comedy Central for the misunderstanding.
