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 just realized what was missing from my DC primary ballot: propositions! Not even a lowly bond measure.
It took utility officials nearly two hours to shut off the gas after the pipeline explosion in San Bruno last week. The area’s congresswoman is crafting legislation to address that and other safety concerns.
Pro football players are looking for help from a Southern California congresswoman in their labor talks with team owners.
It's election day here in the District of Columbia. I cast my first ballot as a DC resident. I won't tell you who I voted for, but I will tell you the difference between voting in LA County and voting in the District.
Eric Garcetti plays the Mayor on tonight's season closer of "The Closer." He's pretty stiff. He's much better when he's playing the City Council President. Oh, and former DA - and Eric's dad - Gil Garcetti plays the retiring Chief of Police.
Democrats continued their message for the midterm election: if the Republicans had been in charge, the economy would have been much worse. Key Democrats made that point at the kickoff of a national Hispanic conference.
Frank Stoltze and I were sent to cover the Metrolink crash. It was the kind of story that makes you want to turn in your press pass.
It’s been two years since a Metrolink commuter train ran a red light on the tracks in Chatsworth and slammed into a Union Pacific freight train. Twenty-five people died in the crash — and more than a hundred others were injured. The Chatsworth disaster motivated change nationwide in two key areas.
It's one of the disadvantages of working in Washington, DC. It's highly unlikely I'll have the opportunity to interview my favorite actor again.
U.S. traffic deaths have fallen to their lowest level in six decades. California’s doing slightly better than the national average.
I was in the new Department of Transportation headquarters this morning. Their security is tighter than what you'll find at the Capitol. But while you wait to sign in, get your badge, walk through the metal detector, swipe your badge, take out your laptop, and fill out paperwork with the serial number of said laptop which you will surrender before leaving the building (the paperwork, hopefully not the laptop), they have flat screen TV's to watch that list the events and seminars of the day.
Police in the nation’s capital arrested a senior aide to Democratic U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer for carrying marijuana to work.
The Architect of the Capitol says he'll move about 300 members of Congress around after the November elections. And if either the House or Senate move to GOP hands, that means all the leadership positions on all the committees switch parties.
The federal government will investigate last year’s deadly Station Fire. The audit comes at the urging of Southern California lawmakers.
The mantra “It’s the economy, stupid” helped get Bill Clinton elected to the White House. With mid-term elections less than two months away, present-day Democrats are trying to tell voters they get that message. House Democratic leaders made their pitch for legislation to create new jobs.
