FROM THIS EPISODE

You may see the slogan on bumper stickers if a local politico has his way. The message is that Sam Zell should sell the Los Angeles Times and leave town. It comes after the latest round of staff cuts and the final appearance of the Opinion and Book section in yesterday's paper. Also, an update on the fire near Yosemite and ballot arguments about same-sex marriage.

Reporter's Notebook Kindergarteners Brought into Same-Sex Marriage Fight 5 MIN, 2 SEC

If same-sex marriage is not repealed in California, kindergartners will have to be taught the virtues of gay and lesbian matrimony.
