Coyotes, traffic, non moving traffic, mudslides, earthquakes, Santa Anna Winds, jail shortage, over regulation, Gangs, drought, Liberals, MexicoI can't really argue with your list, Steve. But as a New Yorker who spent most of his young adult life in Boston, LA just fits me better than Florida. And as a far left radical (liberal has lost its meaning in recent years), I couldn't be happy in central Florida even if they levelled it and and built 'an incredible simulation' of a real city.While I'll never get used to the endless distances, all that dang sunlight and the hours people spend in their cars, I feel reasonably at home wandering the streets of Hollywood. Put me in a suburb of Orlando (can a suburb have suburbs?) and I can't breathe, I get hives, and I get the strange urge to shop for white shoes. LA might never become an actual city, but I can take the subway to my office downtown, I can get a great meal at 3am, and I can live in a neighborhood where every home has a Prius and the neighbors watch MSNBC, listen to NPR and the BBC and there isn't a WalMart within 40 miles. (I actually saw my very first WalMart on my drive down to Disney last week! I made it to 50 without seeing a Walmart except in photos or on TV; I've never lived anywhere that allowed them.) Crossing into Orange County from LA should require a visa; you might as well be entering a different country.Now that I've come out as a raging lefty, I'm sure you all wish that I had left my membership lapse. But what fun would it be if we all agreed on everything? And even godless commies need to prepare for retirement.
