Mister LA: We have a winner

I told you who I thought should win — I guess I was right. Vin Scully came out on top of Los Angeles magazine's online Mister LA contest. He's not just been the Dodgers' voice for going on 60 years, but you could argue — as I have — that he's the glue that held L.A. together as the place matured from a parochial burg into the city it is today. No word (thankfully) on how the rest of us losers fared.

In the May issue: The magazine's 101 favorite Cheap Eats (complete meal for $15 or less, plus tax and tip), Laurie Pike's profile of fashion designer Christian Audigier, a look at L.A.'s celebrity dog trainers and an Anne Taylor Fleming column on how the recession has made the city less frenetic at a high price. At Steve Erickson's review of "The Soloist" and an interview with actress Leslie Mann.
