Checking in on L&T

The same night that Bill Clinton guests on "The Daily Show," his favorite fiction author is being featured on "Life and Times" on KCET. Walter Mosley's latest Easy Rawlins mystery is Little Scarlet, based on his own experiences in South L.A. after the Watts riot in 1965. Also on tonight's show, Jeffrey Kaye reports on the seaweed that is invading land in L.A. Tomorrow, Charles Phoenix brings on his slides of SoCal life in the '50. "Life and Times" now airs at 6:30 p.m.
