    Forum Steven Pinker We are probably living in the most peaceful era in the history of our species, author Steven Pinker says. That may be hard to believe for regular viewers of the evening news. But the Harvard psychologist's research finds that when it comes to war, genocide, capital punishment, rape, hate crimes and slavery, things are definitely looking up. Pinker joins us to discuss his latest book "The Better Angels of Our Nature." Do you think global violence is on the decline?

    Rural Maine Gay Marriage -- Maine could be the first state in the nation to pass a same-sex marriage law by popular referendum this November. The state's voters overturned a gay marriage law in 2009, but polls show a close race this time. To pass it, supporters will have to win over independent voters in the state's most rural areas. Michael May tags along with canvassers as they talk to a rural population that's found itself on the front lines of the gay-rights movement.

    All Things Considered Michigan Labor Ballot Measures In Michigan, unions have bet big on ballot proposals to stem a tide of Republican legislation curtailing organized labor's ability to bargain contracts, collect dues and raise money for political races. Their top goal is to make sure the state Legislature cannot pass a so-called right-to-work law that outlaws compulsory union membership. They also want to reverse a law that allows the state to temporarily take over financially struggling local governments and scrap public employee contracts.
