The heart of what’s left of the West Bank in Minneapolis; Cedar&Riverside. I’ve been coming down here since I was 16 or so. As Bob Wills said; “Time Changes Everything”.

New York City Subway Stairs by Dean Peterson

New Yorker Dean Peterson noticed a small but important detail about his subway station — a single stair that’s a fraction of an inch higher than the others, causing many transit riders to trip.

What makes this story even better is that the MTA caught wind of this video and is taking, um, steps to fix the stairway. We love happy endings!

My friends Meg Liffick and Joe Ball got married yesterday.
When it came time for the couple’s traditional first dance, Joe read prepared remarks explaining that instead of dancing together, they wanted to open the dance floor to their gay and lesbian friends who are still legally denied the right to marry. 
This was a large and very diverse wedding in a state that doesn’t even recognize same-sex civil unions, let alone marriage. And yet the ovation that these people received while dancing to The Beach Boys’ “Wouldn’t It Be Nice” was like nothing I’ve ever heard at any wedding. If there were dry eyes, I didn’t see any. 
Change is coming.
