Economy Riding High on Unmanned Aircraft Manufacturing

Hosted by

Southern California's manufacturing economy was born when millions arrived to build airplanes during World War II. When the Cold War ended, those days were over. But Pentagon demand for a new weapons system is becoming a boon to the Southland and it has multiple private applications as well. What will unmanned drones mean to the local economy? What about increased employment? Will Hollywood celebrities be safe from robotic paparazzi? Also, that mysterious "missile launch" off Southern California? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, when three Supreme Court justices were rejected last week, the decision of Iowa voters was celebrated as a rebuke of judicial overreach and decried as a threat to judicial independence. We hear about same-sex marriage and judicial selection.
