    I've heard whispers on the ground here in Rhode Island that the House actually has enough votes to pass marriage equality. It's the Senate which is the big problem (namely because Senate President Paiva-Weed, whose ass sorely needs a primary but probably won't get it, is showing her conservadem stripes). And Rep. Art Handy is trying to attach an amendment to the civil unions bill which would turn it into marriage again. So we'll see. Marriage isn't dead in Rhode Island just yet. We gays aren't that easy to shut up :)
