For all of the unconventional choices that Spc. Christopher Coffland made in life, his family took comfort in the time-honored rituals surrounding his burial Tuesday at Arlington National Cemetery. The perfect rows of marble headstones stretching as far as the eye could see. The three rifle volleys followed by a somber rendition of "Taps." The flags, folded tight and handed with care to the parents and sister of Coffland, a Baltimore native killed Nov. 13 by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.

The meeting seemed innocent enough. Because they were dispersed among the brigade of midshipmen and saw little of each other, the first class of women to enter the Naval Academy had a meeting to discuss common experiences. During their first plebe summer in 1976, 55 of the 81 female students on campus met for 45 minutes in a room in Mitscher Hall and complained about being harassed, catcalls they termed "emotional rape" and men who routinely walked around naked in front of them in the dorm.

You might think of it as Bewitched meets Desperate Housewives, with dashes of The Music Man thrown in for good measure.
