The D.C. Council gives preliminary approval for mayoral control of the public school system.
L.A. Police Chief Bill Bratton formally announces he'll seek a second term. Given his success in reducing crime and his support from the mayor and several members of the Police Commission, he should become the first police chief to serve a second term since the City Charter was changed in 1992 to limit the position to two five-year appointments. Council Member Bernard Parks, Bratton's predecessor as police commissioner whose removal from office helped bring down Mayor James Hahn, is likely to make this good theater, at least.
