Oracles











Any town in which one of the world's wealthiest men chooses to abide in a relatively modest suburban house has a good thing going. I was struck by the positive, unpretentious outlook exhibited by the residents of Omaha during my brief visit to the Nebraska town earlier this week. Even at Slowdown, a music venue with as "cool" a pedigree as any establishment in the Midwest, the club's owners, staff and patrons were refreshingly modest. Given a choice between living in Omaha or Los Angeles, I'd select the former.

    Never been to LA, but never wanted to live there either... don't think I even want to visit all that much either.

    I spend a few days a year in L.A., Logtar. I love the action and the energy but I despise the attitude and the hassle.

    LA and the surrounding area was fun to visit, but live there? I gripe about commuting 30-45 minutes each way now. I couldn't hack being on those 24 lane monstrosities a couple of hours a day.... On the first day, God rented a car in LA and he thought it would be good. On the second day he created Prozac.
