So here's hoping that in the very near future, foliage will no longer be the only "-iage" product that New Yorkers borrow from Vermont.

Okay, PROUD in New York, time to get LOUD: This from April 9: NYTimes, Peters...........
“I’m going to put the bill out and just let people fight it out,” Mr. Paterson said in an appearance on the Buffalo station WGR-AM (550). “I would like to see the Legislature just debate the bills that people think are controversial.”

In an earlier appearance on WHAM-AM (1180), Mr. Paterson did not seem concerned that the bill could lose. “If it loses, it loses,” he said. “And let the parties on both sides have their say.”

Mr. Paterson added that he believed same-sex marriage would ultimately become law in New York. “Inevitably, the inertia is that the public will accept this,” he said.
