Rick Tuttle nuptials

Congrats to former City Controller Rick Tuttle, who was married tonight to Rebecca Rona. I'm told the festivities at UCLA's Faculty Center attracted, among others, Reps. Howard Berman and Brad Sherman, Supervisor-elect Mark Ridley-Thomas, Assemblyman Mike Feuer, Los Angeles City Council members Wendy Greuel and Bill Rosendahl, former council member Rita Walters, former Assembly members Wally Knox and Barbara Friedman and Judge Terry Friedman.

Also tonight: KCRW got a packed house for the live special broadcast of "Left, Right and Center" at the Eli and Edythe Broad Auditorium in Santa Monica. The show, produced by Sarah Spitz, has been on since April 1996 with the same left and center core — Robert Scheer, Arianna Huffington and Matt Miller — and a roster of conservatives. Scheer tried to buck up the spirits of Tony Blankley, the current Right, who came out from Washington for the broadcast: "You now know how we felt when Ronald Reagan became president."
