I know it’s time. You know it’s time. We all know it’s time.
Yet whenever I read this phrase, so casually and coolly dropped into news articles on the happenings at my state capitol today….
“Minnesota is expected to become the 12th state making same-sex marriage legal”
….I have to do a little:
OH MY GAWD!
IT REALLY IS TIME!
The unemotional can watch the Uptake’s live stream, but I am already a bit too verklempt, especially since the person introducing the bill in the House is Rep. Karen Clark, the longest serving openly lesbian member to serve in a state legislature in the United States. Since 1980 she has kicked all kinds of butt for equality and justice in Minnesota, and everyone exulting today (on the live stream you can hear them chanting, howling, and screaming outside the House chamber) owes her an enormous debt of gratitude.
Now I just have to break the news to Elliott that he’s probably a little too old to be a ring bearer.
