Reporters discuss post-9/11 San Diego and governor’s race

Monday marks the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the United States. Today, the county is considered one of the busiest domestic locations for counterterrorism activity despite being bumped off the list of urban areas eligible to receive homeland security grants. KPBS News Director talks with local reporters about whether San Diego is prepared to face a disaster of 9/11's magnitude, and how 9/11 affected the local Muslim community.

Also, our guests discuss how the governor's race is shaping up.
Gov. Schwarzenegger’s approval ratings are up just in time for his re-election bid. Many Democrats are worried that he’s hijacked their key issues – from raising the minimum wage to a landmark global warming plan. Democratic challenger Phil Angelides trails Schwarzenegger in the polls.
