Clifford May out at LR&C *

After last week's tension, Clifford May is not on today's "Left, Right and Center" on KCRW, and no explanation was given on the air. The show website mentions that regular Arianna Huffington is absent today, but doesn't mention May's whereabouts. John Fund of the Wall Street Journal is on the phone as the guest conservative.

* I've confirmed that May won't be returning to the show. A new conservative regular is being sought. The blog Martini Republic has more.
