Oil Crisis in the Gulf of Mexico; Medical Crisis in LA

Hosted by

A man who delivered medical supplies to victims of Haiti's earthquake is now delivering supplies and care to people here in LA. We talk with Stan Brock of Remote Area Medical and local medical leaders. We also hear about Proposition 16, which would make it harder for cities and counties to get into the electricity business. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, BP says it's responsible for whatever cleanup the Gulf oil spill requires.  As the slick moves closer to shore, we hear what could be in store for wildlife, economic interests and America's continuing appetite for energy.
