Census Figures Indicate Shift in the Political Landscape

Hosted by

The City of Bell threw all the bums out in yesterday's city council election, but in Los Angeles -- to steal a headline from LA Observed — voters cancelled the revolution.  We hear the results. We also look at the latest census data, which shows that California is changing before our eyes in racial and ethnic demography, shifting centers of population and political power. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, candidate Barack Obama said there was a better way to treat suspected terrorists than indefinite detention at Guantanamo Bay.  Now a long-time Guantanamo detainee will face a military tribunal there under his administration.  We'll hear the pros and cons.
