Thank you, is what I have to say to all those legislators in Vermont who have seen the light and understood how little effort it takes to do so much good for so many people. May the gay couples who wed in that state know many years of happy union and the legal protections, rights, and duties of wedlock.

I am very pleased to be in a country where civil unions are nationally recognized and administered by the same state offices which oversee marriages. There is still a ways to go to make all the rights and duties equal to those of married couples, though the most important are already in place.

Giving people their rights costs no one else anything. Rights are something you can give without giving up your own! That's one of the great things about human rights - for all, everywhere, now!
