    Well Maine is tucked up nice and close to Canada, the provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick especially, and I guess the folks in Maine noticed same-sex marriage didn't destroy us Canucks next door, so maybe they feel more confident about accepting the idea?

    Go Maine go!

    This is great news, thanks for posting it.
    Common sense seems to breaking out all over the country, in spite of the best efforts of hateful social conservatives.

    You are nothing if not diligent in your regular reporting on the state of gay marraige. Actually, if little spiders weave their webs regularly they can tie up a lion.
