    Prejudices are useless. Call Los Angeles any dirty name you like—Six Suburbs in Search of a City, Paradise with a Lobotomy, anything—but the fact remains that you are already living in it before you get there.

    He promised
    that life would go on as usual,
    that treaties would be signed, and everyone—

    against a world in which we had no part,
    a world of money, promise and disease.
    —James Welch (b. 1940)
