President Obama took a swipe at the humanities during a speech about job creation yesterday. We get reaction from the chair of USC’s art history department. Plus, why are politicians always touting manufacturing jobs? Are they all they’re cracked-up to be? We also visit L.A.’s first cat art show, and we get prepped for this weekend’s Super Bowl.
