Awesome, we can now bury our partners in Rhode Island with less hassle. Jealous, heteros?
Good news for those who support protections so basic that it's unbelievable we're even having to discuss them in 2010: By sweeping margins, the Rhode Island legislature has overridden Gov. Carcieri's veto of the same-sex partner funeral/burial bill:
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - On their first day back at work, Rhode Island lawmakers overrode Governor Carcieri's vetoes of bills to grant funeral decision-making rights to same-sex couples, strip the governor of his power to fill U.S. Senate vacancies, institute a new $7 recreational saltwater fishing license -- and many more.

Let the bereavement planning fun begin, gay Rhode Islanders! You'll find the planning instructions on page 932 of the Homosexual Agenda Handbook (before the part on how to properly entertain at a wake/shiva call, yet after the part on how to hide your militancy while grieving at a bedside).
As for Carcieri: He's said to already be studying ways that he can f*** with us in the afterlife instead.
I can only hope that this is the first step in many that will go towards burying the 'sanctified' hatred of Maggie 'the pig' Shrivstav and her fellow sty dwellers.

SUCK IT MAGGIE! All you did was give us more ammo for the next time you try to claim that you only want to "protect" marriage.
