Here's a shot of the House chamber. The hearing doesn't start for 45 minutes, but the room is filling up already. Lots of people here to testify.
The second shot, below, is of the signs I saw as I walked toward the Statehouse. The "Take Back Vermont" crowd have their anti-gay-marriage signs strewn all over the lawn and on both sides of the entrance I used to get into the building.
As I walked in, a man tried to hand me a sticker that said something like, "Support Marriage: A Mother and Father for Every Child." I said, "No thanks, my kids have two moms." And he said, "That's too bad."
I just love these public hearings, don't you?
