Law Day 2012: Richard Dreyfuss - Video
In recognition of Law Day 2012, the Library of Congress hosted actor Richard Dreyfuss for a discussion focused on the Dreyfuss Initiative, a nonprofit organization that aims to revitalize civics education in public schools. For the past seven years, Dreyfuss has been traveling the nation advocating the teaching of civics and the restoration of civil debate in America.

Speaker Biography: Richard Dreyfuss, who has starred on stage and screen for nearly five decades in works ranging from the comedic to Shakespeare, has also spent four years studying (2004- 2008) at St. Antony's College at Oxford University. His role as an aspiring actor in "The Goodbye Girl" won him the Academy award. Many of his films appear on the American Film Institute's most recent list of the greatest 100 films. They include "The Graduate," "American Graffiti," and "Jaws." An Academy Award nominee for best actor, for his role in "Mr. Holland's Opus," Dreyfuss was presented the 2000 Lifetime Achievement Award at the Hollywood Film Festival. He frequently returns to his roots in theater, with starring roles on Broadway and off Broadway in productions like "The Exonerated," a work whose theme underscores his life-long commitment to social justice.

Civil Conversations Project: The Future of Music - Video
Redefining the definition of marriage is a monumental cultural transition. But we’ve reduced our public deliberation of this matter – even inside our religious institutions – to a matter of votes and laws. The reality is, even one-third of Democrats still express opposition to gay marriage. But younger people of every political and moral persuasion are coming to a collective comfort level and consensus. Jonathan Rauch is a gay man and gay marriage advocate who respects the values and concerns of social conservatives and wants them taken seriously. David Blankenhorn is a self-identified liberal democrat and long time family and marriage advocate, who testified for gay marriage opponents during California’s Prop. 8 ballot initiative. But he has recently withdrawn his legal opposition to gay marriage, acknowledging the emerging moral consensus. They have developed a friendship that has surprised and changed them both. We’ll listen in on their common struggle to respond compassionately to both sides of our human and civilizational encounter with same sex union, and to discuss it in terms of civil society and a pro-family agenda.

Daily Show: Jon Stewart’s Introduction: A True Moment of Civility - Video
In all I’ve read and pondered these past days, nothing has galvanized me more than Jon Stewart’s introductory remarks in his show on Monday night. If anyone could have used the powerful media space at his disposal to parody vitriol and point to it as a direct cause of last weekend’s violence, it was Stewart.

He did not. He suspended humor and spoke from the heart about the seriousness of the moment. He admitted that it would be easier to point the finger and find blame, but one can’t do that with integrity in this case. And still, he noted, It would “be really nice if the ramblings of crazy people didn’t at all resemble the way people talk to each other on TV.”
