If I'd set up a moment later this morning, I would have missed DFL Senator, Jim Metzen, the Senate President, dancing for lobbyists at the top of the Senate stairs. Things must be going well.
Later, a school group made their way by (maybe third graders), and one boy asked, not accusatory but inquisitively, "Are you gay?" I said, "Yup." Another boy said, "You are?!" "Yes," I said. Then a few of them started running down the stairs. After while, some from the group came back to politely ask if they could take my picture. "Sure," I said. Then, their teacher shagged them back down the stairs, but not before they got their pictures.
