After 40 years, KCET is abandoning leadership of public television in Southern California, cutting ties with the Public Broadcasting System. Sesame Street, Nova, Masterpiece Theater and The NewsHour might — or might not -- be available some place else.

We also hear about the race for Lieutenant Governor, a boring job with two interesting candidates. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, what's now called "Obama's War" features three allies with different objectives. We hear about the conflicting interests of the US, Afghanistan and Pakistan in the conflict with the Taliban.
