reporting live from downtown st. paul
Last Thursday the Minnesota House of Representatives voted Yes, yesterday the Minnesota Senate voted Yes, and today Governor Mark Dayton signs the bill to make gay marriage legal in Minnesota. Minnesota becomes the 12th state to allow same-sex marriage.
We of course are heading over to St. Paul this afternoon to join the throngs witnessing the signing on the steps of the State Capitol Building followed by the celebration party in downtown St. Paul.
This is a big deal, and I feel good about it. My only misgiving: I have the feeling we are going to be invited to a bunch of weddings starting August 1st, and you know how I hate weddings. The bright side: They are going to be kick-ass weddings!
