FROM THIS EPISODE

The LAPD's new headquarters has been formally dedicated. Does it represent a new way of doing police business? Is it really "transparent?" How does it function as a public space in downtown Los Angeles? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, traders and brokers who almost wrecked the economy got bonuses anyway, even as their companies were being saved by taxpayer bailouts. Will pay cuts by the Obama Administration punish the right people? Will new rules protect against another recession?
