Vermont is for lovers!

Vermont just became the 4th state to legalize gay marriage, after the legislature voted to override the governor's veto. The vote was 23-5 to override in the state Senate and 100-49 in the House. This vote came nine years after Vermont adopted the first civil unions law in the nation. Vermont now joins Iowa, Massachusetts, and Connecticut as one of the few states in the union with equal marriage laws. Vermont is now the first state to legislate gay marriage into existence.

Now 2/25ths of the country has equal marriage laws! 4 down, 46 to go. Way to go, Vermont state legislature. You rock my socks.
