It's amazing.
But dont you love California? Dont you love they take money directly from you in taxes, and give it to them? They dont do that in Arizona.

Yeah, thanks -- I'm interested in hearing more about it.

The homeless live where there's alot of people densely packed for a homeless person living in Glendale doesn't make alot of sense. Majority of the homeless are in small pockets of LA City. You can't compare the 2nd largest city in the country with 4 million to Glendale a small in comparison suburb essentially. I agree though Glendale is beautiful Pasadena IMO is more beautiful LA has some of the most beautiful cities in the country. LA Canada is weathier, but there's nothing out there, but good schools and nice views.
I'm often in Torrance and adjacent areas, and I'm not impressed as I was with Glendale. The downtown area of Glendale was spotless.

Do you ever walk on Wilshire? It's not exactly a third world war zone, but you do it often enough and you're going to have incidents; I've had so many I've lost count of them all -- one guy even threatened me with a metal bludgeon because I looked at him.

Do you need to cyberstalk me in every damn thread? Sheesh, dude...

I do, I love walking down willshire in Westwood, and the miracle Mile have never had an incident worth remembering. I assume you're talking about the part past the VA hospital there is alot of homeless in that area, but there are plenty of nice restaurants that make it worth it.

Torrance is so so, but the beach cities are spotless as well with beautiful downtown and streets. Even playa Vista is nice as well with very few homeless and it's in LA city limits.

They'll eventually end up out of California too, probably more likely to go to Las Vegas than Phoenix.

It's got the "cachet", the "flash", the hookers, the European cars and the cigar-smoking lifestyle they prize.

Yes, I'm talking about the area between the VA and SM.
