Today on the Signorile Show

Guest / 2:30pm EST - Yesterday, we spoke to Kurt Opsahl, senior staff attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, who is bringing a lawsuit against Righthaven, a group that has been trolling the blogosphere and suing blogs for copyright infringement when using photo's and articles first published by Stephens Media. EFF had found that the agreement allowing Righthaven to sue these sites on behalf of Stephens Media was bogus. Pam Spaulding of Pam's House Blend returns to the show today to share her own experiences in dealing with Righthaven.

Guest / 3:30pm EST - Tomorrow, Spelman College in Atlanta, GA will be holding a summit, Facilitating Campus Climates of Pluralism, Inclusivity, and Progressive Change at HBCU's. The summit will examine strategies and best practices that can be adopted at the schools to build bridges with the LGBT community. Dr. Jacqui Alexander, a moderator for the event, joins us today to talk about it.

Guest / 4:30pm EST - Everyone can run, but why would someone decide to want to run a marathon... or beyond? Robin Harvie, author of The Lure Of Long Distances: Why We Run, has been running marathons since 2000, but after not being able to beat his personal best, he wondered how far could he run before he couldn't anymore. He joins us this afternoon.
