The 3@3: Gay marriage defense, Lance Armstrong doping and menopause

Today on the 3@3,'s Lester Munson and UIC's Veronica Arreola talk with host Steve Edwards about the topics of the day.

Which include:


Steve Edwards: Today, the Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez decided not to defend against the recent lawsuits over gay marriage. This clears the way for gay marriage advocates to take their case to the Illinois courts.

Lester Munson: Lance Armstrong is denying the new round of doping charges. What does this mean for his career, but more about the issue of performance enhancing drugs? This plus the Roger Clemens trial has brought this issue back in the news.

Veronica Arreola: Menopause has hit the headlines recently. The New York Times reports that women don’t need to take calcium during menopause as originally thought. Also, ‘brain fog’ may be for real.
