    Keep driving those cars and those diesel trucks; keep growing in population and this is not far away for us.

    Hello San Francisco Citizen,

    That is a great photo of LA. In fact, if you are kind enough to grant permission to use it in a physical geography textbook that would be greatly appreciated. Of course, I was brought up to think of Los Angeles as a place where anyone would be crazy to live there.

    Ah, The City, I do miss it and the days when it was a generally affordable place to live, and you could find a place to park, and Playland at the Beach, and Mel’s Drive inn/Doggie Diner, and ice skating at Sutro’s, and being the only one there on Baker Beach on beautiful foggy days other than surfcasters, and foghorns, and riding a cable car because you had to get some where and that was the only line to get you there, and the Committee, and Beatniks/etc..

    Best wishes to you,

    Jim Petersen,

    I think the Mel’s on Geary is going to be condos soon, oh well.

    The person who took that photo was The View from 6A – a well-traveled person. Check on the link to see if they’ll let you. thx!
