The large hearing room at LA County's Hall of Administration is generally almost empty while the five supervisors conduct public business. Last night was a different story. With almost 1000 people signed up to speak, additional rooms were needed to accommodate the audience. The Supervisors rejected a move to redraw their district boundaries so a second Latino might have a better chance to serve. We hear about voting by race, color blindness and the careers of elected officials. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Chris Christie, the man who didn't say "no."
