Vermont could be next to legalize same-sex marriage  

Vermont is on its way to approving same-sex marriage. The state currently allows civil unions, but the Vermont Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved a bill Friday that would allow same-sex marriage instead. The bill will now move to the state Senate, but supporters are concerned that the bill could be veoted by Republican Governor Jim Douglas. A spokesperson told the New York Times:

"Governor Douglas believes that this legislation is a distraction from the important work the legislature should be doing to get our economy back on track."

That sounds like a load of crap to me. Besides, same-sex marriage can only help the economy! Let's keep our fingers crossed.

What next?
