Same sex marriage became legal in Vermont as of 12:01 this morning. To the many gay and lesbian couples who have been waiting for this day, some of whom are undoubtedly tying the knot as we speak — heartfelt congratulations. And to the multitude of friends and family who have gathered to witness these happy events — please don’t throw syrup.
And although bigotry and fear have delayed similar justice in California, I suppose if there’s any silver lining to be found, it can be said that the repeal of our all-to-brief experiment in marriage equality has also delayed the development of wacky domestic sitcoms in whichboth spouses are morons. (Although, now that I think of it, Home Improvement would have been a much more interesting show if Tim Allen had been married to Robert Verdi from Surprised by Design…)
Oh, and to Maggie Gallagher? Just breath slowly and deeply into a paper bag, and the palpitations should subside.
