To the editor, Personally, I do not approve of same-sex marriage. However, now that gay marriage is law in Minnesota, indicating that a majority of Minnesotans believe the gay lifestyle deserves all the legitimacy, respect and approval of the heterosexual lifestyle, what remains to be done? Given the thousands of years of favoritism shown by all cultures toward heterosexuals, certainly the next step must be to institute an aggressive affirmative action program to redress past grievances.
We were happy to write this week about the success story that is Jeff Wynne. After a tough life abusing drugs and alcohol, and after spending time behind bars in Dakota County, Wynne has turned his life around. As if that weren't enough, he began a number of efforts to assist inmates at the jail. Finally, he started an organization that helps them get some solid footing when they are released from jail. That work has led to the Red Cross declaring him a hero. They will honor him in June during an awards breakfast at Target Field. Wynne deserves a big pat on the back for his efforts.
