Welcome to what we are hoping will be the first of many, many weekly news wrap ups (WNWU) for the Center For Progressive Urban Politics.   Today we discussed a range of international, national, state and local issues that included, the Mexican farm workers strike, Ukraine, e-mailgate, Israeli prime minister elections as well as local Los Angeles and Pasadena elections and then finally the Los Angeles Marathon.

The WNWU is an attempt to capture a typical discussion Steve and I have when we get together once a week for breakfast. Our hope is that we can keep alive the spontaneity without coming of rambling or appearing less than well informed.

Again, this is our first WNWU. So, please watch, comment and share with your friends. We are really eager to get your feedback as we look to continually improve the WNWU and provide you the information you want and need.
