      Same-Sex Marriage in the Election

      With Vice President Joe Biden’s recent statement in support of same-sex marriage, and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan’s concurrence on Monday, two top Obama administration officials have stated their support for same-sex marriage, but the White House has been mute on the subject. Pittsburgh Tribune Review political reporter Salena Zito and Brian Moulton, the Legal Director of the Human Rights Campaign, talk about how the issue of same-sex marriage stands to impact the 2012 election.

      Flight 93 Memorial

      The Flight 93 crash site in Shanksville, PA is not yet complete and the fundraising has not received as much private/public support as the World Trade Center or the Pentagon, but next week, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and House Speaker John Boehner will host a benefit to secure funding to complete the Flight 93 Memorial. Park service superintendent Jeff Reinbold talks about the current plans for the site and where things stand with the Flight 93 Memorial for the 2012 visiting season.
