FROM THIS EPISODE

Summer’s here, and that means the dreaded journey to Los Angeles International Airport. Choose between crowded freeways, pricey parking … or a wallet-busting taxi ride. But today, Metro officials agreed to consider another option: A so-called “people mover” that runs from a new light-rail station to LAX.

Also, we get a taste of the melting pot that is LA’s World Cup watching parties. And there’s some unusual in-fighting among California judges about whether they should cut all ties with the Boy Scouts.

Judge May Cut All Ties to Boy Scouts 5 MIN, 55 SEC

Now, a state ethics panel is weighing a proposal that would forbid California judges from associating with the Boy Scouts in any official capacity. As reporter Emily Green tells us, there are strong feelings on both sides.
