After passing through the state Senate today, a bill legalizing gay marriage will be signed by Minnesota’s governor in a ceremony tomorrow, making the state the twelfth in the country (along with D.C.) to allow same-sex marriages, and the third state, along with Delaware and Rhode Island, to join the list since just the beginning of May. That’s not a pace that will continue, but still, it’s been a good two weeks.
