Could a Constitutional Convention Fix California Government?

Hosted by

Another day with no state budget brings California another day closer to a credit crisis that could damage business and create unemployment. Would re-writing the Constitution make things better or worse? Also, Bill Bratton's LAPD gets out from under the federal consent decree. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, 40 years ago today, Buzz Aldrin became the second man to walk on the Moon. Was that the outer limit of human capacity? Should robots take it from there or should we humans try to reach Mars?  We'll talk with Aldrin and others.
