Last night was one of those nights when one might wish Cmdr. Chris Hadfield was still in orbit aboard the International Space Station because his pictures of the Twin Cities clearly showed the blue-bathed I35W bridge in Minneapolis.
He wouldn’t have seen blue last night, though. It was lit in a rainbow following the Minnesota Senate’s passage of the same-sex marriage bill. Similar to the way it was lit here in 2011.

About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
