Great to hear. Let's hope LA trends lower.
Yeah, I think they all left. I know there was a GM (?) Plant in Van Nuys that was a big deal when it closed.

I'm guessing your wife is in bankruptcies or foreclosures? (only kidding, but they WERE doing well in 2008). I graduated college in 2010, and the job market was utter trash. I bounced around from office to office all around Northern and Southern California trying to find work, until I found my current job in 2011 as a paralegal. Since my folks were gracious enough to let me live at home, I took advantage of that to save money on rent.

It was a great time to go back to school, and my job has been nice enough to let me come back after my first year and let me set my own schedule. It's been pretty smooth sailing since.

I'm glad things are working out for you! Everyone I know seems to be doing relatively well now, even my friends who stuck around in construction.

Yeah I heard it was very close, but no cigar. I think they should try again, at least the speed up the construction of the gold and purple lines, and do something about the LAX connection.

An era gone by. GM and Ford I think had a huge presence in Greater Los Angeles for years too.
