The "Fabulous Forum" isn't so fabulous any more. The Kings and Lakers moved downtown to the Staples Center in 1999, along with the kind of big-name entertainment acts that used to draw big crowds to Inglewood. Now that may be about to change. MSG, owners of Madison Square Garden, have acquired the Forum, and that's renewed plans for a developer who wants to turn the Hollywood Park racetrack into a planned community. James Butts is a former Inglewood policeman and former police chief in Santa Monica. Now the Mayor of Inglewood, he joins us in the studio.
