Can LA Cyclists Be Counted? Recently, the City of Los Angeles has failed to count bicycles during morning and evening commuting hours as required by the LA Bike Master Plan . But tomorrow, a count is finally scheduled to get under way. Dorothy Le is Director of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition.
Cycling in Los Angeles The LAPD says a Brentwood doctor has been involved in two incidents of “road rage” with cyclists on Mandeville Canyon Road. That’s a regular uphill challenge for recreational cyclists who like to coast back down when they’re done. Dr. Christopher Thompson is accused of slamming his car brakes on in front of two cyclists July 4th, causing one to go through his car window while the other crashed to the ground. The police say Thompson was involved in a similar crash in March.
Trump's 'America First' goes missing abroad In the Middle East, President Trump is changing some policies of the Obama Administration—and reversing his own campaign attacks on Islam as a religion that "hates us." We hear about his visit to Saudi Arabia and what's at stake for the rest of his foreign excursion.
Is the threat from Russia missing from the Russia meddling probe? There's much being made about the Trump administration's possible ties with Russia. But the bottom line is Russia's effort to influence American democracy. Do the President and his aides care enough to take action before voters go back to the polls?
The Trump agenda: where's the beef? President Trump says big things are happening. After celebrating a House bill on health care, he doesn’t yet have Senate agreement. With James Comey’s public testimony scheduled tomorrow, the President today tweeted his selection of a new FBI Director. Is the Chief Executive all style and no substance? Later, terror attacks in Iran and conflicting claims about who’s behind them.
What happens when America retreats from the world? Is President Trump taking his "America First" agenda to extremes, withdrawing the country from the international stage on trade and climate change, distancing America from its traditional allies across the Atlantic and even threatening to physically isolate the country through the building of a wall along its southern border?
