Do kids really need a dad AND a mom? Why not two dads or two moms?

Last week, on my “Open Line” radio show (Thursdays, 3-5 ET), I took a call from a listener who wanted some advice on how to talk to a “gay marriage” proponent about why it's better to have a mom and a dad versus some other combination. I tried to offer a few points for consideration. Please click the image to launch the audio clip, or click

Meet Rory

I admit, when I first saw this satirical GOP-sponsored commercial, I thought it was pure satire. In other words, I thought there was no way that Harry Reid's son, Rory Reid, the Democrat candidate for governor of Nevada, was really dropping his last name from much of his public campaign outreach. But then I checked out his official campaign website and was . . . not really surprised, actually . . . to see that that's pretty much what he's doing — campaigning mainly as "Rory."

True, that move has worked in the past for well-known and widely admired political icons like Teddy (Roosevelt), Ike and, more recently, Hillary. But Rory? Mmm, not so much.
