Morning Links: Rhode Island, Colorado, And Vandalism At Law School

-- The New York Times takes a look at the marriage fight in Rhode Island, the only state in New England that has not legalized gay marriage. As per usual, NOM is leading the opposition on the ground. The Times quotes the local leader:

"We belong to the United States of America, not to the United States of New England," said Christopher Plante, the executive director. "Rhode Island stands with the vast majority of Americans in understanding that marriage is the union of one man and one woman." Thirty states have constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriage.

-- Meanwhile, yesterday in Colorado, the Senate's Judiciary Committee advanced legislation to allow civil unions on a 3-2 vote. The Denver Post has the story.

-- The offices of the Lambda Law Students Association at Boston College Law School were vandalized over Martin Luther King weekend. The school is investigation the case.
