We tried something new this week.

For the first half of the program, we offered rapid-fire takes on a slew of stories that came out this week.

Tune in to hear what Scott Lewis and I had to say about:

• A court ruling against the San Diego region’s 40-year plan for highways, local roads and transit projects, which said the plan was too dependent on car-based travel;

• U-T San Diego’s look at whether cyclists or drivers are more often at fault when cyclists get hurt or injured;

• How the local newspaper reacted when Todd Bosnich, before he publicly alleged Carl DeMaio sexually harassed him, had submitted a letter to the editor vouching for DeMaio;

• Why the operator of Belmont Park said the city really needed to hurry up and approve a new 55-year lease;

• What the county’s pension board did this week to rein in its investment manager;

• And the insane, repulsive behavior that two fraternities allegedly displayed toward a Take Back the Night walk at San Diego State.

Stick around after the break in the show to hear our reaction to an event Ira Glass, of “This American Life,” held last weekend in San Diego, and what the success of his show and others like it might mean for the future of public media, plus a short riff on the reorganization of VOSD.
