« Best Bites: Rozzi's Lakeshore Tavern | Main | Gov. Douglas Says He'll Veto Same-Sex Marriage Bill »

March 24, 2009

James Neiley, Superstar

James Neiley, a 17-year-old Outright Vermont youth and Board Representative, testified in front of the Vermont Senate on Friday. He spoke eloquently in favor of the same-sex marriage bill.

This video of his testimony is popping up all over the web. Someone just sent me a link to it on Andrew Sullivan's blog. Nice work, James. 

The House is holding hearings on the bill this week, and will take public testimony on Thursday. WPTZ will be streaming the hearings on its website. Shay Totten will be Twittering the House public hearing on Thursday. More details as it approaches.

This would be incredibly moving and well-prepared testimony even if it was delivered by a forty-year-old.
