* And to Larchmont: Channel 4's website this afternoon posted a photo of Villaraigosa and Channel 5 anchor Lu Parker — a former Miss USA — at Chevalier's bookstore over the weekend.

Ordinarily the Channel 4 website is not to be confused with KNBC News, but the photo appears to have come from KNBC assignment editor David Reese.
