New Health Law Has Foodies Crying 'Nanny State'

Hosted by

A new state law has some of LA's finest chefs outraged. They'll have to wear disposable gloves every time they touch ready-to-eat raw food, what one calls the 'clay of her culinary sculpture.' Bartenders complain they'll have to snap on new gloves whenever they garnish a cocktail. Drinkers and diners do face the risk of food-borne illness, but is this a case of well-intentioned over-protection? We hear a debate. Also, why is historical preservation on hold in Los Angeles?

Will that lead to fewer executions or a return to gas chambers, electric chairs and hangings?
