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.

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.
Two California Congressional races are still too close to call. But come January, California’s congressional delegation will be full of familiar faces.
Nancy Pelosi is out as U.S. House speaker; John Boehner is in. When the new Congress begins in January, Democrats will be the minority party again. Some veteran Democrats who’ve been through this before.
I'm trying to wake up after a late, late night/morning at Barbara Boxer's election night party. As I stumble down to the lobby area, I spot the two guys who've been working at one particular table on their twin laptops every time I walk past.
It was billed as the fight of her political life and Barbara Boxer’s campaign for a fourth term in the Senate lived up to the hype.
Attorneys argued a First Amendment case involving a California law this morning before the U.S. Supreme Court. Two lower courts have already declared the state’s ban on the sale or rental of violent video games to children unconstitutional. Several justices on the nation’s highest court appear to agree.
I admit it's an odd dream to have on the eve of the mid-term elections. It would have been far more appropriate to imagine I'd been elected to Congress or - on the night the San Francisco Giants won the World Series - that I'd finally fulfilled my dream of becomming a play-by-play announcer.
It’s down to the wire. Candidates are trying to keep volunteers motivated to knock on doors and phone people urging them to vote tomorrow. Republican gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman made a few of those calls at a Woodland Hills campaign office.
Who knew the lowly San Francisco Giants had it in them to beat everybody else and become World Series champs for the first time since they left NYC. And on the eve of election day.
Candidates are crisscrossing the state today, looking for undecided voters. On Sunday, GOP senatorial candidate Carly Fiorina campaigned in Palm Desert and Fresno. Democrat Barbara Boxer dropped by a phone bank at a firefighters union hall in Rosemead to juice up the volunteers.
I covered the Carly Fiorina speech at Seal Beach's Leisure World Saturday morning. It was a bit lonesome.
On the last weekend before Tuesday’s election, candidates are trying to get as many voters to the polls as possible. Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer visited a Los Angeles phone bank on Saturday. Her Republican opponent Carly Fiorina stopped by Leisure World in Seal Beach to deliver her message to a roomful of seniors.
This election year is scary enough for politicians in Washington. But at least Halloween allows DC types to express their fears and get a laugh.
