The President Goes to The Big Easy; Bill Bratton's Leaving LA

Hosted by

The Los Angeles Police Department is leaving Parker Center, and Bill Bratton is moving on, too.  We talk with the LAPD Chief about the city's peculiar brand of politics and get some history out of the now-defunct press room at Parker Center. On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, President Obama touched down briefly in New Orleans today, and the Big Easy seemed to be saying, "it's about time."  We hear about reconstruction, flood protection, race and political partisanship.
