And… We’re Officially Last.

New Hampshire just approved gay marriage, which means that same-sex couples in the Granit State can now live free and/or die without having to concern themselves with crap like hospital visitation rights and separate state income tax returns.

That means that we are now the only state in New England where same-sex couples can’t get hitched.  And, probably, it’s going to stay that way for a while, despite the abundance of openly gay people here.  Admittedly, I don’t think gay marriage is the most important issue in the world, but I also think it’s kind of a slap in the face that Rhode Island–the only state in New England founded on ideals of religious freedom–would be the last one to carry on without equal rights for its (many, many) gays and lesbians.
