Medical Treatment for Desperate Californians On Monday thousands waited in line for hours just to get plastic wristbands, their tickets to a four-day free medical clinic at the Sports Arena in downtown Los Angeles. Today, the first wave showed up for the clinic itself, organized by CareNow , based here in LA, and staffed by volunteers and medical professionals, including cardiologists, dentists podiatrists, chiropractors, acupuncturists and others. (In addition to the guests listed below, we also hear the voices of patients Patricia Hopkins, Kevin Singleton, Eva, and Tim Green.)
Mixed Messages from US diplomats on the new hard line on Syria Since President Trump's surprise retaliation against Syria's use of chemical weapons, Bashar al-Assad has used the same airport to launch conventional attacks on his own people.

Other conflicts are already obvious from his appointments. And he's being sued for using his job to increase his profits.
