quote [ BREAKING: After about 4 hours of debate, the Minnesota Senate has voted 37-30 to approve a bill legalizing same-sex marriage in the state. ]
Governor Mark Dayton has already said he'll sign this legislation tomorrow, Tuesday May 14. When he does, Minnesota will become the twelfth state in the US to legally recognize same-sex civil marriage. Followup to my post of Thursday May 9 2013.

quote [ Minnesota House approves gay marriage bill after two-hour debate ]
Minnesota DFL (Democrat Farmer Labor) controls the state Senate, and will vote on this measure next week. If it passes, Governor Mark Dayton has vowed to sign it. I'm stunned; just a year ago we were fighting to defeat an amendment to the state Constitution that would have outlawed same-sex unions.

I did not always agree with his analysis, but I always respected his opinions. He'll be missed.

Is it a kindness that he did not live to see the Tim Burton - Johnny Depp version of his character? (Followup to sua_sponte's post 66310, 'Return to Collinwood'.)

Educating the public by any means possible. Just in case.

Finally, a bailout proposal we can all get behind.
