La pura vida beckons in L.A.

How an out-of-towner learned to appreciate the paradise of Los Angeles -- traffic, drought and all.

IT USED TO BE that Angelenos were much too cool to express outright pride in their city, feeling that boosterism is for yahoos from the Midwest. But when I was in L.A. last week, I got an earful about what a good place it is from friends who never said anything like that before. They had always talked about choking traffic, the unreality of real estate prices, the sprawl, blah blah blah. Now, suddenly, they couldn't live anyplace else.

If we could do two things, then L.A. would truly be a great city:

- build an expansive subway system

- deport all the Mexicans
Right on, deport all the Mexicans, but let all the Guatemalans, Hondurans, El Salvadorans, Belizians, Dominicans, Cubans, Venezuelans, Panamanians, Colombians, Chileans, Argentineans, Bolivians, Peruvians and Ecuadorians stay, even if they're illegal too. Because America welcomes all Latinos, just not the Mexicans. So deport just the Mexicans and all our problems go away. :lol:
