Omelettes all round in Boston!

A South Boston veterans council, facing withering criticism, reversed course on Friday and extended an unconditional invitation to the group of gay veterans it had barred from marching in Boston’s St. Patrick’s Day parade.

OUTVETS, a group of LGBT veterans, will now march in the March 19 parade with its rainbow banner and logo, a point of contention that the Allied War Veterans Council had cited when it voted on Tuesday to reject the organization.

The war veterans council on Friday night agreed unanimously to invite OUTVETS to the parade with no restrictions on the display of the rainbow flag.

And they have enough egg on their faces to provide plenty of free omelettes.
