'Chasing Aphrodite' from the Getty Museum to Italy

Hosted by

The Getty Museum's famous statue of Aphrodite has gone home from the Villa in Malibu to a small town in Sicily, and the Getty, along with other US museums, no longer buys looted antiquities from a criminal underground. A new book tells the story of beauty, corruption and the waste of millions of dollars. We talk with one of the authors, a Getty spokesman and a well-known writer and blogger about the art world. Also, the US Supreme Court says California's prison population must be reduced by thousands of inmates.  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty lead a Restive Republican field.
