A key FDA committee meets tomorrow to debate the need for COVID vaccine boosters. But there still seems to be no scientific consensus if they are needed by most people now. We'll go In-Depth on that. We'll talk with an LA County supervisor who thinks more thinking is needed before a new county-wide mandatory vaccine policy for certain indoor businesses goes into effect.

    LA County---getting incrementally tougher when it comes to mandatory Covid vaccines. If you want to go inside a bar, winery, nightclub or lounge, you will need proof of vaccination soon. For outdoor events with more than 10 thousand, proof of vaccination or a recent negative test. BUT.....what about restaurants? What about gyms? What about movie theatres? No to all. And so we will go In Depth to find out if that makes sense? California's recall effort ended with a whimper, not a bang: we'll go In Depth on why the effort to kick Gavin Newsom out of his job as governor never ended up being close--and what it will take for Republicans to be competitive in this state again. We'll also take a closer look at some calls to reform California's recall process. One big takeaway from the blowout recall result: Californians seemingly endorsed the state's more aggressive approach to controlling the spread of the coronavirus. FDA staff members give what looks like a cold shoulder to the proposal of COVID vaccine boosters.

    On the morning of 9/11, In Depth co-host Charles Feldman: "I was driving to work. Early call. I doubt the sun was even up yet in L.A. My pager -- remember those? -- frantically tried to jump off my belt at about the same time the news came on the radio. A plane apparently had struck one of the two World Trade Center towers.  And that is how it began.  At least for me. No doubt differently for you. I had lived across the broad street from the towers for years and, as a correspondent, covered the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center. Although I had since left New York for Los Angeles, 9/11 , for a short while, brought me back to help cover the day that changed the world. Mike Simpson, In Depth co-host: "I was heading to school. At home, it was just a fire. By the time I was on the bus, the radio said it was worse. Another explosion. Then there was someone saying that one of the towers had collapsed. Which I didn't believe. Because it was the music station. Not the news. So I assumed they *had* to have gotten it wrong.  Once on campus. It was on the TV. And that's where we all sat. For most of the day. Watching the coverage. Nobody was quite sure what to say. So they sent us home early. And we walked back to our houses ... quiet .... because nobody was quite sure what to say." Some say America was united that day as it has not been since. Others have a different view. That's fine.
