Vermont Civil Unions- Five Years Later, State Apparently NOT Going To Hell In A Handbasket

It's been five years since Vermont split the baby, and opted to enforce the equal rights provision of its state constitution by splitting the baby- I mean, choosing civil unions over marriage. Despite much handwringing, and a brief (and bigoted) attempt to rewrite the state constitution, Vermonters have gotten used to it. Which is what we who are not freaked out by gay people have been saying would happen.

Don't tell Dubya- he might try to invade... erm, liberate Vermont.
