Iraq's Confusing Election; LA's Confusing DWP Rate-Hike Debate

Hosted by

Mayor Villaraigosa took another hit today from the Los Angeles City Council, but Department of Water and Power ratepayers will take a hit, too. We get reaction from downtown business interests and environmentalists.  Also, will dropping five days from the school year be a hardship on working parents? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, much-awaited parliamentary elections have divided Iraq between two strong leaders with similar goals but no desire to compromise. Can either one form a government before violence increases again? Will US troops be able to pull out on schedule?
