The latest milestone is encouraging but there’s a growing concern in California as hospitalizations are rising in regions with low vaccination rates. Plus, the fallout against San Diego Unified’s proposal for a “mental health” day off after Veterans Day has some parents questioning whether the district is telling the truth about school staffing issues. Also, the federal government’s ban on non-essential cross-border travel was the enemy that San Diego’s political establishment needed to find its voice on border advocacy. And, from the archive, an interview with Sara Clarke Kaplan, the author of "The Black Reproductive: Unfree Labor and Insurgent Motherhood," which looks at Black freedom and the dismantling of oppressive systems through the lens of Black reproduction and Black feminist theory. Finally, KPBS film critic Beth Accomando discusses a documentary on controversial author Saul Bellow with filmmaker Asaf Galay. The film screens tonight at the San Diego Jewish Film Festival.
