FROM THE HEADLINES:THE MARRIAGE AMMENDMENT
When it comes to marriage, Virginians have a choice to make on election day. Do we need an amendment to the state Constitution that would define it as a union between a man and a woman? Virginia is already one of 43 states that ban the recognition of same-sex marriages, but proponents say a constitutional amendment is necessary to protect existing state law from court challenges. We'll discuss the issue on today's HearSay with state Delegate Bob Marshall, Victoria Cobb, Executive Director of The Family Foundation of Virginia, and Bob MacIver and Claire Gastanaga of The Commonwealth Coalition.

LIVING CULTURE: APOCALYPSE NOW?
Is this the end of the world as we know it? Some believe we are living in the times prophesized in the Book of Revelation.

YOU HAVE THE RIGHT
Some feel our nation's First Amendment is a casualty of war. Despite the fear of future terrorist attacks, a recent study shows the majority of Americans are unwilling to give up civil liberties in exchange for national security. What do you think? We'll talk about the First Amendment on today's HearSay with Tom Palumbo, member of Veterans for Peace and Professor Geoffrey Stone of the University of Chicago School of Law. His book, "Perilous Times", investigates how the First Amendment and other civil liberties have been compromised in America during wartime.
