Living Room – Cali budget; Labor Fest; Dave Zirin

Crisis is opportunity, they say, and California's budget crisis has the S.F. city assessor actually doing something about Prop. 13.  We get the details.  One of the largest celebrations of labor in America starts today in SF.  PLUS: the inimitable sportswriter Dave Zirin, in SF for "Socialism 2009".  Say what?  With host Kris Welch.
