Food Access in Los Angeles: A Tale of Two Cities
Listen to/Watch entire show:
On this day before Thanksgiving, we compare the quality of what people eat in different parts of the Los Angeles region. How can more people get better food? Also, California's next Attorney General will be an African-American woman, the current Democratic District Attorney of San Francisco, whose campaign made history in more ways than one, and the LA Auto Show isn't all about concept cars, electrics and hybrids. We hear how low riders fit in. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, yesterday's North Korean attack on South Korea was one of the most provocative since the Korean War. Does it leave the US with any good options?

Steve Cooley Concedes to Kamala Harris ()
California's next Attorney General will be San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris, giving the Democrats a sweep of all statewide offices in this month's elections.

Food Access in Los Angeles: A Tale of Two Cities ()
In parts of the Los Angeles region tomorrow, a lot of people will be chowing down on good, healthy food that's plentiful in neighborhood supermarkets. In other parts, it'll be very different.
The Latest Crisis with North Korea ()
North Korea has seized the world's attention with a new reactor, a new plant for enriching uranium and an artillery attack killing two South Korean civilians. In response, the US will hold joint military exercises with South Korea, including a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier strike group. North Korea's provocations could constitute a demand for renewed diplomacy or a show of power by an untested new leader. What about China? What are the implications for American policy?
