Vt Marriage Hearings--Comprehensive Links

Major Kudos to the Burlington Free Press for liveblogging and livestreaming last night's hearings. BFP reports 1,000 people showed up about evenly divided pro and con. The wingnuts were out in full force--and they're their own worst enemy. As of right now, BFP's liveblog from last night is still readable here, along with this morning's article covering the hearing.
