FROM THIS EPISODE

One hundred forty-three million pounds of beef have been recalled from a meatpacking plant in Chino where videotape showed that sick animals became part of the food supply.  Most of the meat has already been eaten. Also, the Los Angeles Times has its fourth editor in three years.  He says his first mission will be shrinking the size of the newsroom.
