'Meatless Mondays': LA urges residents to turn vegetarian one day a week

Los Angeles is hoping to persuade people to become vegetarian at least one day per week. Under a resolution unanimously approved by the city council this week, all future Mondays in the City of Angels have been declared "Meatless Mondays."
