We start today with a look at the impasse between LA teachers and the school district over salaries and class sizes. Teachers are planning to boycott faculty meetings this afternoon. Then, Angelina Jolie penned an op-ed in today’s New York Times about her decision to remove her ovaries and fallopian tubes to reduce her risk of ovarian cancer: What are the risks and benefits of this kind of preventative surgery? Next, we preview the new must-read books coming out this summer and spring. And finally, the music industry has moved record release day from Tuesday to Friday. Why, and does it mean anything for fans?
