FROM THIS EPISODE

The Army Corps of Engineers runs the Los Angeles River as a flood control channel. But speculators are buying up 11 miles of frontage between Griffith Park and downtown LA. As river restoration proceeds, Mayor Garcetti envisions a balance between upscale development and affordable housing. But environmentalists say they're losing their voice, and low-income residents fear losing their homes to gentrification. Also, what's in store for California Republicans in next week's election, and what about all those aspiring judges?

Image-for-WWLA.jpgLater on To the Point, five years after President Obama ordered the closing of Guantánamo Bay, even former supporters call it a "recruiting poster for terrorists." We hear about prisoners held for 12 years without trial, videotapes of force-feedings—and the President's latest promise to veto any defense bill that doesn't allow Guantánamo to be closed.
