Merging Airlines, Reforming Politics and Managing Public Lands

Hosted by

Proposition 14 would take the parties out of primary elections and let voters pick any candidate they chose. Would they go for moderates instead of extremists?  We hear a debate. We also hear about the latest rent dispute on LA's Olvera Street and the possibility of giving billionaire Eli Broad 82,000 square of public land for a dollar a year. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, the merger of United and Continental will leave the US with just four major airlines.  Will the combined carriers finally start making money?  Will that mean fewer flights and higher fares?
