I love Los Angeles.
People in the UK love to hate Los Angeles without ever having set foot there, projecting their own ugly insides onto this other place. Those who love it have given up trying to explain why it’s so great, tired of the looks implying that your judgement is questionable.LA doesn’t need your love, and doesn’t care about your disapproval. It doesn’t try to win you over. You either accept it on its terms, [or] you can move on to San Francisco, a city ready and anxious for your love.
