In Los Angeles, the magazine

CoverThe September issue has a long story by Jesse Katz on the scuffle at Royce Hall between a freelance writer (Rachel Neuwirth) and an anti-war UCLA Hillel rabbi (Chaim Seidler-Feller) after an Alan Dershowitz appearance in 2003. Seidler-Feller apologized formally in February, but the case still splits local Jews. Also: Joe Domanick dissects the myth of Anthony Pellicano, John Powers defends liberal Hollywood, Margot Dougherty has the cover piece on Terrence Howard, I have a story on the politics of the Antonio Villaraigosa and Mirthala Salinas affair and there's a piece on Mercedes Lambert and a new travel column. It's the dating issue, so there's a sex survey. It's on the street, but not yet online.

In other magazines: Radar's September issue has details on Laurie David's affair with a Martha's Vineyard real estate developer and her efforts to be made a producer on An Inconvenient Truth. The Queen of Green, they call it.
