The Internet and Education; Legal Marijuana and Crime

Hosted by  • 

California voters will get another chance to lead the nation this coming November, for good or for ill. A measure to legalize marijuana for recreational use has qualified for the ballot. Will legal weed mean more crime or less? Also, the Getty Museum goes to the Internet for new leadership and better morale. We hear from both campaigns.  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, in the Age of the Internet, school districts are laying off librarians. Is that an appropriate way to save money, or will it deprive kids of critical skills they need to assess and evaluate a welter of information on line?
