It's the season for candidates

Mayor Villaraigosa was on Which Way, L.A.? tonight talking up his water restrictions to the KCRW audience, Patt Morrison continued her daily run through the challengers on KPCC with Zuma Dogg this afternoon, and Larry Mantle invited in all the candidates for City Attorney this morning on Airtalk. Audio for all is available at the links. Candidates for City Council district 5 will have a campaign forum at UCLA Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.

Good talk: Rob Long interviewed the other KCRW on-air conservative, Tony Blankley, on today's Politics of Culture about his new book, "American Grit."
