The Fresno Bee's Bill McEwen joins Valley Public Radio's Joe Moore to talk about the controversy over the Summerset Village apartments, where over 1,000 people are without heat due to a gas leak. Will the situation make dealing with blighted and substandard housing a major city priority? And why is the Fresno County Board of Supervisors balking at releasing an internal report into the death of Seth Ireland? We talk about those issues and also the candidates aiming to be the next mayor of Fresno, and high-speed rail's budget crunch.
