  • The country continues to battle the surge of omicron cases as the Biden Administration is taking steps to increase the availability of test kits and N95 masks. Plus, mental fatigue is on the rise and is less avoidable as the pandemic enters its third year with the omicron variant. Next, we remember Tijuana photojournalist Margarito Martinez Esquivel who was killed Monday. Later, Microenterprise Home Kitchen Operations or MEHKOs could soon become legal in San Diego County. After, KPBS Race and Equity reporter Cristina Kim reports on the community revitalization of the secret stairs near Valencia Park. Finally, KPBS revisits an interview about a book that explores the power of memory and desire.
