Prop. 8 Ruling/Os Guinness/Cyberterrorism/Sound Advice


Prop. 8 Ruling A federal judge struck down Proposition 8 yesterday. Judge Vaughn Walker ruled that California's ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional. He found that Prop. 8 violates the rights of same-sex couples, and that supporters of the ban had not proven same-sex marriages harm society. The case will likely go to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and perhaps end up at the U.S. Supreme Court. In the meantime, the judge will soon hear arguments on whether same-sex marriages should be allowed to resume during any appeals. Today on Insight, we'll talk with various people about it.

Os Guinness Author and social critic Os Guiness is coming to town. He'll speak in Roseville this weekend at a conference on religion and society. His latest book is "The Case for Civility." Guiness says our society's future depends on creating a civil public square where different religious and social values can interact without falling into a culture war.

Cyberterrorism in Hospitals Hospital leaders are in town today to learn about the threat they face from so-called "cyberterrorism" and to hear how hospitals can better protect themselves and their patients. The Northern California Hospital Cyberterrorism Seminar happens all day today at UC Davis. We'll talk with two of the seminar's panelists today.
