TOMORROW: Rhode Island Will (Almost Certainly) Punt on Same-Sex Marriage


Tomorrow, Rhode Island will attempt — for the twelfth straight year — to legalize gay marriage. And just like years past, things are not looking good. And what if, by some miracle, the majority of legislators voted for the bill? Catholic Republican Gov. Don Carcieri would almost certainly veto it.
