We are continuing our week-long coverage of the debate over same-sex marriage. Today the Supreme Court heard a challenge against the Defense of Marriage Act which passed in 1996. The law defined marriage as only being between a man and a woman affecting 1,100 statutes covering everything from taxes to federal benefits. Like the state of California in the case of Proposition 8 heard yesterday, the Obama Administration has elected not to defend the law against court challenge. As a result, members of Congress formed the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group to take up defense of DOMA, opening a challenge to their very defense because they may lack standing. The Court also must decide whether same-sex couples are a protected class in the way interracial couples were determined to be in Loving v. Virginia which overturned laws outlawing interracial marriage.
A little later, I will have in-studio, Fred Karger, a long-time Republican campaign consultant and now director of Rights Equal Rights, a pro-same sex marriage advocacy group. Before that we’ll get into the case itself with some legal insight from William Duncan of the Marriage Law Foundation who wrote an amicus brief for the Court in support of BLAG and those calling DOMA constitutional. But first we’ll talk to David McKean, legal director for OutServe-SLDN who wrote a brief on in support of plaintiffs challenging DOMA.
Andy McKean is the President & Founder of Liberty Day. His organization is striving to create a curriculum for all 5th graders to learn and talk about the constitution and our founding documents through the words of those that wrote them.

Attending the recent Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition at the Dallas Museum of Fine Arts, I was undoubtedly seduced back into the world of Vintage and well of course, Couture. Seeing Gaultier as the true Artist that he really is invigorated me with this sense of truly understanding the though processes which occurs with designers in their motivation in each new design. Why do we create each new design with specific colors, shapes, textures, styles? When we’re looking at vintage for example, what is about the elegance of these designs which will never fade? I spoke with Erin McKean of A Dress A Day recently about some of these concepts and how she sees the world of Vintage designs evolving. Take a look at our interview.

Unplugged: My Journey into the Dark World
of Video Game Addiction is the book. Reviews of this book:
"Video game addiction is a topic that merits more serious consideration than it's currently receiving. Van Cleave is on the right track here."
--Senator Ernest Hollings (SC)
"Technology has overrun us in the era of the video game. Parents must circle quickly to prevent their children from disappearing into virtual worlds from which many will not return. Unplugged is an important warning about the treacherous nature of any kind of addiction and about the possibilities that are inherent when one is absent from one's own life."
--Alice Walker, author of The Color Purple
"Video game addiction is a real and growing problem that few seem willing to address. I'm glad Ryan Van Cleave has been willing to tell his story and hope it helps many young men avoid similar patterns."
--Kurt Bruner, co-author of Playstation Nation
