L.A.'s the place for a Big Mac


Roger L. Simon is linking on his blog to the good news -- outside of Switzerland, the best place to be a worker with a Big Mac craving is here in Los Angeles. In L.A. the average worker only needs to toil for 10 minutes to pay for the soppy, underwhelming burger. In Nairobi it would cost three hours' work. Roger recommends In 'n Out anyway, and I'm with him.

And in this other post, he apologizes for scooping Tim Rutten's Saturday column in the L.A. Times, apparently about Hollywood and the recall. It's also a subject Nikki Finke writes about in the current LA Weekly.
