Some See the Glass Half Empty, Others See the Glass Half Full

“Marry Me In Minneapolis”. This is the ad campaign Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak has recently started using.

As of last summer, Minnesota passed a same-sex marriage law permitting gay marriage.

While Illinois lawmakers have failed to pass a same-sex marriage law, Mayor Rybak is taking advantage of the opportunity. While Illinois has yet to jump on board, Minneapolis is making money off of the opportunity. In a sense, Minnesota is being opportunistic and taking a not so ideal situation and making it a beneficial one.

Thoughts?
