Yo, Virginia!

Vermont's also making you look bad.

Or maybe it's just Virginia's making Virginia look bad, now that I think about it.

Gool ol' Vermont. We'll have to visit there someday.

I can make some suggestions. :D

Burlington alone can keep you busy for a few days.

I've never actually been north of Northern New York state (Albany area). I've always wanted to visit New England, just not necessarily in the deepest part of winter. ;)

unless you are into skiing, the dead of winter isn't the best time. Anytime between late spring to mid-fall is good, though. Ben & Jerry's factory tour is a fun one. There's lots of historical this n' that, like the von trapp family lodge (rebuilt after burning down once, but it's the design and location of where the original family felt most at home after fleeing the nazis)

Leaf peeping is wonderful in the fall. Beaches, sailing, fishing, etc is popular in the summer, lots of mountains to hike, parks to visit.

6_6 lots of maple syrup to bring home.

From what I remember, Vermont is the only state to ban billboards, on the grounds that they spoil the view.

I think the first state was actually Texas: the push to ban billboards did begin with President Johnson's wife, Lady-Bird.

Course... It could have also been California: This state is just so fracked up (why did I have to be born there?).

I'm not sure who was first, but it's a wonderful policy. I loved not seeing them when i lived there.

This should take the pressure off California.

Didn't this push (maybe a poor choice of wording) actually start in Massachusetts?

Virginia has one of the strongest if not the strongest constitutional bans in place. It even makes contracts between same sex couples dubious. It'll be awhile before anything is done here, unless it's done nationally.

virginia's making virginia look bad. but it looks like dc may start to show up the contrast.

if, of course, congress doesn't overrule them, as it does on every other matter of consequence and many of none.

I'm hoping for you americans that soon it will start a snowball effect and that the rest of the states will follow!

Not that we hate the gay marriage business in Canada right now ;-)
But its really unfair to you guys!


One or two other states and itll be within reach as other states won't want to look too redneck!

Except for Alaska.. Because they're just weird and pride themselves in rednevktitude or something

eventually the majority of Americans are going to realize
that all this boils down to legally is a rights issue.

Seeing as how it took the Supreme Court to step in to allow Virginia blacks to marry Virginia whites...

...I just don't see that happening soon in Virginia, unfortunately.

Unless Virginia really has shifted that much towards progress... which would be a great thing ^^
