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.

Stories by Kitty Felde
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.
If you were planning to vote absentee in Tuesday’s election — sorry, it’s too late. The deadline to apply for a vote-by-mail ballot passed yesterday. Record numbers of Californians are voting by mail — including University of California students spending this fall in the nation’s capital.
Whether the issue was stimulus spending, health care or financial regulation, Democrats courted senators Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe. They’re moderate Republicans willing to cross party lines. Former White House chief of staff Rahm Emmanuel called them “focused negotiators” that use their votes to bargain for the best interests of their state. Would a Republican – say, Carly Fiorina – help California cut better deals in the Senate?
Nice to know the site where Marian Anderson sang and Martin Luther King preached and anti-war demonstrators gathered has now become a backdrop for AMC to plug its zombie series. Early this morning, a gaggle of the undead arrived on the national Mall - only to be turned away by the brave US Park Police.
California’s high-speed rail project just got a jolt of federal investment money.
I spotted lawn signs all over south Jersey for next week's election...most of them for very odd political offices we just don't have in southern California. What the heck is a "Freeholder" or a "Surrogate" anyway?
I've been watching the Giant/Phillies playoff games in the heart of south Jersey, the communities around Atlantic City. I had no idea this was the heart of Phillies country.
Good for the Texas Rangers. It'll be so nice to see someone besides the New York Yankees in the World Series.
I don't know why they sing "God Bless America" in the middle of a ballgame. I know it's a holdover from after 9/11. I think "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" is pretty darn patriotic.
When you picture a child of the 1960's from California, you picture tie die and the faint scent of marijuana and lots of quinoa.
I was signing the paperwork, turning over my collection of ephemera from my days covering the Simpson/Goldman murder trial to the Newseum. It was nice to have someone else store my collection of cartoons, press pass, media party passes, pictures, etc.
There are two measures on the November ballot dealing with gerrymandering.
Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was in London today where he told British Prime Minister David Cameron “not to be an economic girlie-man.” The Governor also found time to Twitter his way into California’s political fray.
