FROM THIS EPISODE

Today's rain has already led to evacuations, and this is just the beginning. We get the latest forecast and update preparations for what could be a very wet week. On Martin Luther King Day, is "yesterday’s dream today’s reality?" We hear different opinions. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, President Obama has made a desperate effort to save one vote in the Senate, which could mean life or death for healthcare reform and the rest of his agenda.  We hear about tomorrow’s special election to replace the late Ted Kennedy.

Making News LA Braces for Major Rain Storm 10 MIN, 33 SEC

Caltrans closed portions of the Angeles Crest Highway and Big Tujunga Canyon Road last night to prepare for today's rainstorm and what's expected later this week. Sure enough, the National Weather Service issued flash flood warnings just after noon. The LA County Fire Department has been preparing for months for this kind of assault by nature.  Early this afternoon, evacuations began in La Canada.

Main Topic Martin Luther King Day, 'Yesterday's Dream Is Today's Reality' 15 MIN, 22 SEC

Los Angeles' 25th annual Kingdom Day Parade braved the rain today, complete with marching bands, floats and politicians. The theme was, “Yesterday's Dream is Today's Reality.” In a famous visit to LA in 1961, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called for segregation to end in seven to 10 years and for “a completely integrated society.”
