This is for all you Los Angeles haters. If L.A. is so bad then why does so many people live there? I mean it's not even that terrible in L.A.. L.A. is a really wounderous place to live, the traffic and gridlock is only a sign saying that a lot of people like to live there and that its a big thriving city same thing with the smog which isn't all that bad smog is just a sign of a growing city. Just think of it this way, if L.A. was half bad as ya'll make it then why is hollywood still there, and why do people countinusly tend to live there. Sure L.A. has its ugly side but what city dosen't, I can name five cities off my head that are not that glamourus like San diego, New York City, Chicago, Washington D.C, and Detroit (oh wait you allready know that...LoL) any wayall iam tryin to say is don't count out L.A. just yet.

My Mom lived there. Almost got murdered twice and got terrorist bombed once. She left and never looked back. She refuses to even go over the Grapevine anymore.

As for me...I'm neutral, more or less, although LA is a little cliche for me. If I move back to CA, it'll probably either be to Paso Robles or San Diego.

L.A is a Wonderful and Exciting Place,but unfortunately their are people who focus solely on the Negative Points and lump all of L.A into that category.

For those of you who live in L.A and hate it,well move out,and for those of you who never lived in L.A,but hate it,well don't visit the place.

L.A will continue to Thrive and Prosper whether people like it or not.

Terrorist Bombed? That's a very funny joke. Over the Grapevine? I don't remember much congestion or crime right over the Grapevine. Hey, I wish you and your mom the best where life finds you.

L.A. is our favorite city and we've been all over. Sure many big cities have different things to offer, but L.A. has it ALL + some. Every city has crime and we all know cities like St. Louis, Detroit, Chicago all have higher crime index than L.A. so for all those who hate the city of angels, go hang out and try to find decent nightlife in Detroit... withOUT getting stabbed for your shoes.
