NYT observes Huell, Kobe, Glorya Kaufman

huell-rabe.jpgBig weekend for Angelenos in the New York Times. The paper publishes an obituary of Huell Howser, saying the public television host's "homespun ebullience resonated with viewers and interviewees." The story recounts the episode when Huell reunited an 80-year-old retired elephant trainer with his former animal friend, and notes the homage on "The Simpson's" to Howell Huser. The NYT also discusses that Kobe Bryant is facing only his second losing season on the Lakers. And the arts section Q&A's Los Angeles philanthropist Glorya Kaufman about her funding of a new dance school at USC.
