Tale of two cities: The bright side of living in L.A.

There are 4 comments on the LA Daily News story from Apr 25, 2009, titled Tale of two cities: The bright side of living in L.A.. In it, LA Daily News reports that:

The Lakers are still the hottest ticket in town, but they may be the only show in L.A. that's recession-proof. And that's the silver lining in the bad economy for Angelenos, who can now find deeply discounted tickets at big-name theaters, shorter waits at top restaurants and great deals on meals and sporting events.

If you have $75 to spend on a "cheap" ticket to see the Lakers, you have too much disposable income and are in no way hurting, becuase if you were, you'd watch it at home on TV for free.

And it isn't just the price of the ticket. Chances are you'd buy two. Who goes to a game alone unless you're meeting someone there? Then there's parking and food, which is probably sold at a 500 percent mark up.

I was born and raised here in LA and cannot wait to retire and get the hell out of this hole!!! LA is not what it used to be. Of course the Daily News always likes to sugarcoat what really happens in LA. Unless you want to be an actor, singer or are an illegal immigrant or any other form of a criminal then LA is not for you. This place caters to the bad element!!!

Let's see, the best part of living in L.A. is...um...that we can get Steak Dinner's for $40 a plate.

This speaks volumes in terms of what is not said.
