Kitty Felde is KPCC's Washington, D.C. Correspondent.
Before moving to the nation's capital, Kitty hosted KPCC's "Talk of the City" from 1997-2006.
In addition to her work in Los Angeles, Felde has reported from Africa and The Hague on AIDS and the war crimes tribunals for Rwanda and Bosnia.
When Felde puts down her microphone, she puts on her pointed shoes in ballet class. She's also an award-winning playwright. Her work has been produced at the National Theater in Washington, D.C., and at various theaters in New York and Los Angeles. If you look very closely in Woody Allen's "Radio Days," you'll spot her playing the role of Mrs. Riley.

I reported earlier today on a letter from California's two Senators, suggesting Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood ship all that extra cash for high speed rail to us. A pair of newly elected GOP governors don't want it.
The newly-elected Republican governors of Wisconsin and Ohio say they won’t take federal dollars to help build a high speed rail line. That could mean good news for California.
Summer is really awful here in Washington. But autumn is absolutely glorious!
As Republicans prepare to become the majority in the House of Representatives, one California GOP leader is sending the message that less is more.
It’s freshman orientation — time to meet new friends, learn the rules, figure out how to get around the campus. In this case, the campus is Capitol Hill. Class begins today for the nation's newest lawmakers.
Apparently I wasn't the only one amused by "The "Washington Post" video touting their iPad version of the paper. The local alternative paper just put out this parody: Hmm...wonder what the KPCC version would look like?
The November election meant Nancy Pelosi lost her job as Speaker of the House. But when the San Francisco Democrat declined to step down from party leadership, a two-man battle for the number two position broke out on Capitol Hill. Both sides are wooing California’s Congressional Democrats.
There's an amusing ad for the new "Washington Post" app for iPads that features Bob Woodward, an IBM Selectric typewriter (just like the one Daniel Schorr used to use), and of course, the new toy, the iPad.
Next week, Republican leaders will decide who will chair the committees in the House of Representatives. Many are Californians. But one more GOP Congressman from California wants to head his committee.
Nearly two dozen GOP members of Congress met today in Washington to discuss procedures they want to follow when Republicans take over leadership in the House. A Congressman from Orange County wants Congress to stop wasting time.
A week after the election, two California Congressional races are still too close to call.
Republicans will take over as the leadership of the House of Representatives in January. This week, a GOP transition team is meeting in the Capitol to discuss rules changes and other procedures so the new leaders can hit the ground running. One Californian on the team is San Dimas Congressman David Dreier.
Pity poor Nancy Pelosi.
Don't get me wrong, DC is a fabulous place for a reporter. Particularly next year.with the changes in leadership in the House. But I really miss good Mexican food, decent summer weather, and the ocean.
American and British officials are downplaying a French official’s comment that a mail bomb was minutes away from blowing up the airliner on which it traveled. Agents last week intercepted a pair of package bombs that originated in the Middle Eastern country of Yemen. A local member of the US House Homeland Security Committee says she’s been concerned about Yemen for a long time.
