In Inglewood and South LA It's Goodbye Trees, Hello Pocket Parks

Hosted by

The California Science Center fought hard for the chance to turn the now-grounded Space Shuttle Endeavour into a massive exhibit of American history. In parts of LA and Inglewood, hundreds of old, tall and beloved trees are already being cut down to make way for the spacecraft to travel next month from LAX to Exposition Park. Is the museum piece worth the sacrifice in neighborhoods that are so far from Nature? Even LA's Tree People see benefits. We find out why.  Also, how foreclosed properties are being turned into parks in LA's inner city.  On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, will the courts decide another presidential election?
