In the second segment (minute 36:47), UCI Law School professor Alex Camacho takes up the potential for the case of coastal property owner, Vinod Khosla, to challenge the California Coastal Act in a fundamental way. With the owners legal representation’s sights set on the US Supreme Court, the case could have far reaching consequences for California’s entire coast line. Mr. Khosla’s property is at Martins Beach at Half Moon Bay, in San Mateo County. With the owner’s legal representation’s sights set on the U.S. Supreme Court, the case could have far reaching consequences for the entire state with respect to public access to the coastal zone. Surf’s up! Stakes are higher!
Peggy Maradudin returns to the show with her inestimably hefty insight about Russia; a week after their elections, and generations into the gulag, now a forced memory camp. The whole hour is hers to ponder the nature of what Vladimir Putin, and his inner sanctum and what they inflict upon his society and beyond.
