Defending L.A.

I realize it's not subtle, or even particularly funny, but I still enjoyed this Steve Lopez column where he goes looking for seething racial tension a la "Crash."

Also, enjoy this takedown of out-of-town journalists regurgitating off-the-shelf cliches when they come here. Think Christopher Hitchens, it makes it more fun. Or Maureen Dowd; a fat family of four in their Big Ten T-shirts gawking at Grauman's Chinese has seen more of L.A. than Maureen Dowd does -- judging by her columns, at least. At least (to steal a line from Steve Lopez) go east of Robertson, for crissake!
