Re "Minn. OKs gay marriage; governor to sign" (Tribune, May 14):
Minnesota just became the 12th state to stop marriage discrimination. Last week it was Delaware. The week before that, Rhode Island. Soon Illinois. The state dominoes are falling.
In the not-too-distant future, students in civics classes will wonder what was the big deal about gay marriage. The same is true today about the time when women in America were so irrelevant that they could not own or inherit property, sign contracts, serve on juries or vote.
