There was a busload of high school kids from Lake of the Woods at the Capitol today. That's a long haul. Anyway, they were having a group picture taken on the lower part of the Senate stairs when a number of girls from the group came up to the top where I was protesting and asked if they could have their picture taken with me. Delighted, I said yes and asked them if they would like to hold the banner. They did, and were all standing behind the banner with me posing for pictures being taken by a couple of boys with several cameras. I only wish I had asked them to take one with my camera so I could post it here. Afterwords, one of the Capitol security guys came up and said, "You've become quite a celebrity." I sure felt like one. They were great. I gave them all Marriage Equality stickers as a souvenir.
