First legislative victory for Gay Marriage

Vermont's legislature overturned Governor Jim Douglas’ veto of a bill allowing gays and lesbians to marry. First state to (successfully) tackle the issue without the courts forcing their hands, which is good news... and it's nice to see Vermonters do the right thing. But don't think that their decision to enact equal marriage rights gives me any sympathy for their hockey team come Thursday.
