they hate our diversity....they hate that we are different and isolated from most of the country in terms of culture

they cant imagine such a dominant force since L.A runs the west coast and the east/south/midwest all have a bunch of cities clumped together


theyve never been here

I've been to L.A.
And I can tell you, the only real reason why people don't like L.A. is ^^^ that right there.
That's the same attitude some Dallasites have... like Dallas is just the center of the universe. New York, Miami, Houston, Boston...... any major city that's been featured in a tv show several times.

But hey, I know your just trollin' so big deal.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I think Hollywood and the media create such a false, skewed perception of what life in L.A. is like, that when people finally visit, it can be a bit of a let-down, and that's putting it mildly... more like a huge disappointment! That was my experience visiting L.A. for the first time 12 years ago anyway.

Look in the mirror. Its 'tudes like that in L.A. that disgust me more than anything else. That and the brain-dead "celebrities" that call L.A. home.

Keep talking, boy.

And dont call us "pansies", how about you get out of your little palm-tree "paradise", lay down the sun-tan lotion and Prada purse, and come endure a Chicago winter. Might put a little hair on yer chest.
