Yesterday, the AFL-CIO kicked off a four day convention here in Los Angeles. The tag line for the event was Dream, Innovate, Act, and many say that the nation's biggest labor organization desperately needs to do all three. And a six-month investigation by the San Diego Union Tribune and the California Health CareFoundation has pieced together some sobering information about the care of senior citizens. State regulatory records indicate that hundreds of seniors in San Diego County have suffered injuries, illness and in some cases death due to poor care at assisted living facilities. Plus, we'll talk to a fire forensics specialist who's investigated the causes of wildfires and speak to a mother who's made extremely tough choices regarding raising her son - who seems far more comfortable wearing girl's clothing. She wrote a book about her experiences, "Raising my Rainbow."
