With each state that adds its name to the list of states to allow gay marriage my heart fills with pride. Congratulations to all the people of Minnesota that worked so hard to achieve this.

Seeing "1/4th of the lower 48" is definitely a milestone worth praising Rainbow Kid.

I can only dream of the day when I can take a stand and say "I Do!" to my partner of 32+ years. We'll never give up hope but we may have to move from the right wing South to make it happen. We have discussed doing so and our choice of new places to live just keeps growing.

I am very happy for those who have been affected by the passing of this legislation and proud of your governor for being willing to sign it into law so quickly. If only our nation's capitol could work together and so efficiently.
