The M WORD: The battle over same sex marriages

The debate over same sex unions once again is headed to the floor of the Virginia General Assembly.   Lawmakers discuss again this year whether a ban on gay marriages should become part of the Commonwealth's constitution.  On today's edition of HearSay, we'll talk about the definition of marriage, discuss whether "civil unions" are the answer and find out why some Christian leaders are backing gay matrimony.

CAPITAL GAMES: 2006 General Assembly Preview

Last year they debated everything from abortion bills and a gay marriage ammendment to "droopy drawers".   As lawmakers reconvene in Richmond for the 2006 General Assembly, we'll preview this year's session with reporters Margaret Edds of the Virginian Piliot and Hugh Lessig from The Daily Press.  Will transportation take top priority?  Or will hot button issues get the most attention?  Let us know what you think on Tuesday's HearSay.

ALTERED STATES: Near Death Experiences
On today's HearSay we look to "the other side" and examine the white lights and dark tunnels experienced by one third of adults who have died and lived to tell about it.  We'll talk to some survivors about what is a "typical" experience, what are the aftereffects, and what the medical community says about these experiences.

MEDICARE, PART D - PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND POLICY

Medicare’s Prescription Drug Plan, called Part D, went into effect January 1st of this year, but millions of senior citizens are still trying to decipher and choose from a dizzying array of plans, including more than 40 in the state of Virginia.  How did Part D come about, what were the intended effects, and what are the unintended implications of the policy behind it?  Join us in the first of a two part series with House Calls, as we examine the broader consequences of Medicare Part D.
