Lang:

In celebration of Twin Cities Pride weekend the Minnesota Department of Transportation programed the LED lights on the I-35W bridge over the Mississippi river to bathe the bridge in a beautiful rainbow color. This is a time-lapse film showing the transformation of the Mill Ruins Park, the Stone Arch bridge and the I-35W bridge as dusk fell into night in downtown Minneapolis on June 24, 2011.

    Exactly how much of our tax money was spent “celebrating” aberrant social pathologies?

    @Neal – Probably less than is spent defending your right to be publicly intolerant.

    Although I am curious as to the cost.

    Tax money financing the lighting of a bridge for a socio-political agenda costs more than defending my right of conscience.

    The projection of intolerance is noted as well.
