Today on the Signorile Show

3:35pm ET - Every Friday, Noah Michelson, Executive Editor of Huffington Posts Gay Voices, helps us close out the week in stories making headlines over at Gay Voices.

4:35pm ET - The Declaration of Independence altered the course of history; it is the most profound document in the history of government since the Magna Carta.  Yet, despite its paramount importance, the Declaration is rarely read from start to finish, much less understood.  Troubled by the fact that so few Americans actually know what it says, Danielle Allen, a political philosopher and professor of social science, set out to explore the arguments of the Declaration.  In her new book, Our Declaration: A Reading of the Declaration of Independence in Defense of Equality, she affirms the continuing relevance of America's founding text and reveals what democracy actually means and what it asks of us, while making the case that we cannot have freedom as individuals without equality among us as a people and she joins us today to explain.
