Four Down: Vermont OKs Gay MarriageS

Vermont just became the latest domino to fall in the gay-marriage movement, with the state's legislature and senate voting overwhelmingly to override an earlier gubernatorial veto of a bill extending marriage rights to same-sex couples.

Vermont was the first state to offer civil unions to gay couples as an alternative to marriage. Now Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Vermont let gay people marry, and Maine and New Hampshire are considering gay marriage bills, which means even more gay people will be buying B&Bs in cute little New England towns. And Iowa's Supreme Court ruled last week that a law defining marriage as a union between and man and a woman was unconstitutional. New York and California are still not ready to go there.
