News comes out of Vermont this morning that the State's Senate and House of Delegates have successfully cast votes which override Vermont Governor Jim Douglas's (R) veto of a gay marriage bill which was voted on earlier this week. The Senate vote passed with a wide margin of 23-5 vote, and squeaked by in the House with a narrow 2/3 majority of 100-47. Us gays have yet another remote speck of rock to make our nuptial nests.

This also marks the first time a State has willingly and successfully afforded marriage rights to same-sex couples via the legislature. All prior advancements in this area have been made through the Judicial system. Way to go, democracy!
