FROM THIS EPISODE
California voters are on a different page from their leaders, especially when it comes to political reform. According to the latest public-opinion poll by the Public Policy institute of California, Governor Schwarzenegger's doing all right and the legislature is somewhat improved, but the federal government is a disaster. How are the presidential candidates doing? Do voters like the idea of a February primary? What about changing the current term limits law? There's good news and bad news for California's political leaders. We hear what Californians are thinking from Mark Baldassare, president of the Public Policy Institute of California, Republican political strategist Allan Hoffenblum and Democratic activist Rick Jacobs.
A gold wreath that dates back almost to Alexander the Great has been returned to Greece by LA's Getty Museum. It has been described as one of that country's "most exquisite treasures"--realistically delicate leaves and flowers made of gold foil attached to a slender headband. It was made in the 4th Century BC. Ron Hartwig is Vice President for Communications at the Getty.
