Insulting SF in one breath then suggesting peace in another is somewhat passive-aggressive. You should have said, "You are your own city and you seem to be doing just fine as is. Let Los Angeles be Los Angeles. Try celebrating diversity by permitting variety, yes?" and left it at that.

But, you do have a point. What I want from Angelenos, and I've asked of Angelenos before, is to tell me what they love about their city. Not statistics - this city vs. that city, and bashing NYC, Chicago or SF, but what they love about it.

I said it yesterday, and I'll say it again, maybe I missed something? Maybe LA is just not for me, but maybe I missed something or many things. I'd love to hear a whole list of what people who love LA love about it. It will be nice, the next time I go, to maybe go into it with a different perspective and a different set of expectations.

Oh, Gucci! That's where Jerry Garcia bought all his handbags! I'm sorry, but the shopping/tourist parts of SF are not where its "character" lies. Nieman Marcus does not strike me as liberal, progressive or multicultural. There may be more foot traffic than Rodeo, but neither really holds the essence of their respective cities/regions. This is a dumb argument.

I know. It's like watching kid's fight over the shiniest toy.
L.A. is nice, San Francisco is nice, in the end WE ALL live in the SAME country and life goes on.

So San Francisco is a giant shopping mall but a way better one than the big one, New York? It looks like the Galleria but inside out.

Where do people work? San José? The Apple, Intel, Sun, etc. offices aren't in San Francisco but in the suburbs! Apple could build a skyscraper that is just like the Apple Store façade or nicer. Is the city core declining and the city is turning it into a giant shopping mall to hide the decay?

I'd only reserve that for NYC and Chicago. The way San Francisco was presented here was a nice clean shopping mall that Manhattan could envy; though the grit and grind is part of the charm of Manhattan.

I'd like to add SF also. The size of the population is irrelevant. LA is a perfect example.

What happened to the skyscrapers? There was a revolt because it would block the view? San Francisco doesn't want to enter the skyscraper race? Why? Oh well, that means more for Houston and less for San Francisco which is fine by me.
