FROM William Poundstone
Here Comes the Rock A 340-ton, 21' 6" high granite boulder the size of a two-story house left the Stone Valley quarry near Riverside last Tuesday on its way to the LA County Museum of Art. At LACMA, it will be suspended over a 456-foot-long trench and, for spectators down below, the " Levitated Mass ," as it's called, will appear to be floating. Privately funded, it's still been attacked as an outrageous waste of money as well as a desecration of nature. Tonight it's in La Mirada, and later on it'll head to Lakewood, with arrival at LACMA scheduled for Saturday.

Who's to blame for the opioid crisis? Some of the lawyers who took on Big Tobacco are now going after Big Pharma. It’s all about the deadly epidemic of opioid use. Are the drug companies to blame? What about the users? Later, on today’s Talking Point: making sense of Britain’s upset election.
What is Trump's plan for Middle East peace? On his first foreign tour, President Trump has promised "peace" between Israel and the Palestinians. Are there any details for re-starting talks that have been stalled for the past three years?
Human Rights in the era of Donald Trump President Trump’s UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley, said today the US might pull out of the United Nations’ Human Rights Council. Serious violators of human rights are members of the Council itself–and a US resignation could make things worse. Later on today’s show, now that he’s into his second term, comedian turned US Senator Al Franken is telling jokes again.
