Ahh, it’s that final rush before Christmas day and everyone is squeezing out every last drop of 2012 so that they can take the next week or two just to relax and prepare for 2013. Some of us are going to have to prepare for even more: visitors. Be it family or old friends, you may be readying for an onslaught of out-of-towners, many of whom have never been to Los Angeles.

This meant some community-on-community hate and lots of division between the old, the new, the confused, the over intelligent, and everyone in the gaps. We have forgotten most of the dramas of this year but these few stuck out to us like square tumors. Glad most of them have subsided!

New York Times Los Angeles Risk Of Decline

Here is some New York City sensationalism: the New York Times published and article titled “Report Finds Los Angeles at Risk of Decline.” Okay, dudes. But, truth telling: most of the article is bogus but our “expanding” so quickly from outsider money is something to be concerned about. Who is really in control of LA? Do those people actually care about the city? That’s where we see the imminent decline coming from…
