Los Angeles is the nation's rudest city, according to Travel and Leisure magazine. The rude rankings are part of the magazine's annual survey of America's Favorite Cities.

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep, with congratulations to Los Angeles. It may be America's second largest city, but it's number one for rudeness.

RENEE MONTAGNE: What?

(Soundbite of laughter)

INSKEEP: That's, Renee's city. You're very polite. But Travel and Leisure�magazine says L.A. is even more rude than New York. Apparently, you talking to me is less rude than we simply must do lunch sometime. Washington is only the fifth most rude city in America, although it's not clear if that includes Congress.
