Oregon Court Nullifies Gay Marriages

The Oregon Supreme Court on Thursday nullified nearly 3,000 marriage licenses issued to gay couples last year by Multnomah County, saying a county cannot go against state matrimonial law. Oregon Public Radio's Colin Fogarty reports.

Colin Fogarty fell in love with public radio as a 19–year–old student at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. He launched his life in radio as a board operator at WMUB, where he spun records for "Mama Jazz." He was always a news junky, but he got hooked on reporting when he covered a 1992 campaign rally. Colin ran across the quad, stuck a microphone in then-Senator Al Gore's face and asked a question. When Gore actually answered, Colin knew he had found his calling.
