Southern California Gripped By Measles Outbreak

Hosted by

A San Diego urgent-care clinic closed yesterday after five people arrived with symptoms of measles. Were they at Disneyland the week before Christmas? It's safe now, but that was the scene of the latest outbreak of a disease the US eradicated 15 years ago. Measles is coming back — in part because too many people refuse vaccinations.

Also, Pasadena is admired for the Rose Parade and good government, so residents are outraged over allegations that a "trusted employee" stole $6.4 million of money.
