Car-Culture Snippet

i find it hard to believe that the car’s american birthplace is detroit. it should be l.a., where a pedestrian is an anomaly. people walk only to get to their cars, so they can drive the six-lane-wide, strip-mall-looking streets. i got the sense that everything happened indoors, at individual destinations that the peroxide heads and fake-tanned torsos shuttle to, one by one.

    A new town, a city of Angels. Wide streets (in contrast to that scruffy, dirty New York), blue skys, no winter: perfect for that new fangled car contraption.

    Interesting how the good things we create through optimism come back to make us mad.
