I am all for gay rights, but does this mean they are going to start getting more money for college and getting accepted into college more easily because they are a part of the sexual minority like the people of racial minorities are? Better not.

I am very happy this passed, People have the right to love and to be with whoever they want, you cannot take away people's happiness.
Riley Hanson's curator insight, May 20, 2013 3:29 PM

This will be very good for Minnesotans, people will no longer have to go to another state to get married, they can stay right here in Minnesota.  If only this passed awhile ago....

Being forced to take drugs to tell the truth? How is this Constitutional?
Jordan's curator insight, May 1, 2013 7:30 PM

This story brings up an interesting point. Is giving this man a "truth serum" constitional? I don't think it is because that violates his right to not encriminating himsef. Although if he's lying to the court thats another story.

I agree with Mason.

A defused 220-pound bomb from World War II was found and taken on Wednesday, April 3rd. The police said it was a Russian aerial bomb dropped during the war. - I personally think this is really cool! Being a person to find something like this would be amazing

I'm glad bomb didn't go off when they were trying to diffuse it. that would have been awful.
