    In the great department store of life, baseball is the toy department.
    Los Angeles Sportscaster. quoted in Independent Magazine (London, Sept. 28, 1991)

    Prejudices are useless. Call Los Angeles any dirty name you like—Six Suburbs in Search of a City, Paradise with a Lobotomy, anything—but the fact remains that you are already living in it before you get there.
    Clive James (b. 1939)

    The freeway experience ... is the only secular communion Los Angeles has.... Actual participation requires a total surrender, a concentration so intense as to seem a kind of narcosis, a rapture-of-the-freeway. The mind goes clean. The rhythm takes over.
    Joan Didion (b. 1935)
