Credibility in Afghanistan and Homeless in LA

Hosted by

A new census shows LA County has 38% fewer homeless people than it did two years ago, still more than any place else in America. Is the count really accurate? Will ethics investigations mean political trouble for two local members of Congress or their party?  Plus, what's the meaning of The Day of the Dead? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Abdullah Abdullah has dropped out, so there won't be a run-off, and Hamid Karzai will get a second term as President of Afghanistan. Will he be "credible" to his own people or to President Obama as he decides whether to send more American soldiers?
