    This is actually quite significant. To an outside observer, the deep-blue Rhode Island may appear to be a Vermont-by-the-sea. But these staunch Democrats were never "socially liberal". The loyal Kennedy troops? Absolutely. But also sharing most every prejudice with certain blue-color neighborhoods of Boston.

    It is no surprise that all Republicans in the state legislature had supported gay marriage (they are New England Republicans - and so was Gov. Chafee, before going indie - a breed apart). But the fact that their Dems had managed to overcome the fear of losing the vote of your friendly neighborhood union thug...Anyone who lived in the area for a quarter of century, as I did, knows how remarkable this is.

    It is not often that I am ready to stick a gold star onto the narrow Democratic forehead. But there, General Assembly of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, you deserve it.

    I know what you're saying. RI is hardly a hotbed of liberalism, but Providence is amazingly up to date.......................

    You mean like Elton John's adopted kids growing up with a penchant for platform shoes and weird eyeglass wear ? I can see that as a realistic threat, And maybe your point about viewing genitals may have some validity----------Perhaps we need to outlaw public urinals and gym showers too ?................................
