    Not only is it the right thing to do, I have to imagine that Hawaii may see an increase in tourism to the state as a result.  A win on all fronts.

      I believe that everywhere in the country (except possibly Alaska) has a Marriage Equality state that is cheaper to get to. (haven't looked at prices for  Anchorage-Seattle vs Anchorage-Hawaii flights in a while).

      (Not sure what the point is in the lower 48 farthest from a Marriage Equality state, either Brownsville, TX or Key West, FL, I guess)

      •  yeah, but Hawaii is a honeymoon (0+ / 0-)

        as to Alaska, Hawaii has long been an easy slide downhill ...

      •  There is a weird science fiction story (0+ / 0-)

        The Hemingway Hoax, by Joe Haldeman, involving a lost Hemingway short story, time travel, and alternate realities, in which one of the characters turns up to seduce the main character wearing a t-shirt that says

      California and Hawaii on who can do equal marriages right. Beaches, check. Mountains, even volcanoes, check, although California's Mt. Shasta is not active, and its mountains are a lot further from the beaches. Palm trees, check. Amazing food, check. Surfers, check. Cultural diversity, check. Amazing dancers and musicians, check. Am I missing anything?
