Same-Sex Marriage Public Hearing Tonight 

This image is a little love note we received on our fax machine this morning. Just in time! The House and Senate Judiciary Committees are hosting a public hearing on same-sex marriage tonight at the Statehouse in Montpelier from 6-8:30 p.m.

Seven Days Creative Director and Associate Publisher Don Eggert and I are going to be at the Statehouse, live blogging the proceedings. Don's not a reporter, but I asked him to join me in Montpelier because the two of us spoke about gay marriage for Seven Days' January 7 cover story, "A More Perfect Union."

Seven Days will host the live blog on our homepage, alongside a video stream of the proceedings, courtesy of Channel 17 Town Meeting Television. So you'll be able to follow along as we make pithy comments. And you'll be able to add your own comments as well. Please join us on the live blog tonight. The fun starts at 6, or maybe a few minutes before, depending on how easy it is for us to set up.

The address on the bottom of this flyer says it's from Utah. They want to shame us outspoken Vermont gays, but they're the ones who should be ashamed — look at this layout! It's atrocious. What's with the weird spacing and random capitalization?

Anybody else have good examples of out-of-state marriage propaganda to share?

The prizes, given annually by the Vermont Technology Alliance, BTV Ignite and Seven Days, recognize leaders in the state's tech ecosystem. The awards ceremony was the culmination of a busy day at the free career and tech expo organized by Seven Days and presented by Vermont Works. Representatives from more than 50 companies and colleges talked with hundreds of attendees who walked the expo floor. Jeff Couture, executive director of the Vermont Technology Alliance, said he talked with job seekers from across Vermont and outside the state at the event, "including someone, suitcase in hand, who visited from North Carolina."
