The Political Food Fight at LAX

Hosted by

Los Angeles is known for its world-class diversity of good restaurants, but you'd never know it at LAX, even though it's called the "international" airport. Today, some of the city's best-known chefs staged what they call an "Eat-In," to demonstrate what would be offered by new concessions airport officials want to install.  But, with $600 million at stake, the old concessionaires aren't quitting without a fight. We hear from travelers, chefs and a City Councilman who complains about lobbyists "all over the place." On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Arizona has appealed yesterday's federal court ruling that the toughest provisions of a new immigration law are unconstitutional. Demonstrators were arrested today in Phoenix.
