Now, I have never been to Los Angeles so I can't really comment. The only local connection around here in South London with Los Angeles is a little chap who was born not far away from where I live, who carried a cane, wore a bowler hat, sported a Hitler style moustache and had a funny walk.
But lets not talk about him.
Here are a few quotations about Los Angeles I came across today.
"Los Angeles is the second-largest Mexican, Armenian, Korean, Filipino, Salvadorean and Guatemalan city in the world."
And this quote from that erudite film actor,Russell Crowe:
"I'd move to Los Angeles if New Zealand and Australia were swallowed up by a tidal wave, if there was a bubonic plague in England and if the continent of Africa disappeared from some Martian attack."RUSSELL CROWE
