Observing Los Angeles

Arianna on living in L.A.

It must be let's talk about L.A. month at the blog of the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan. Last week Sydney Pollack answered questions from Andrew Krucoff, now it's Arianna Huffington's turn. She loves us, she really loves us. Sample:

Since no one actually lives ďinĒ L.A., how would you describe your geographical relationship with the area?
We have an open marriage. The love is there, and Iíll always come back to her, but sometimes I just need to be with other cities to spice things up.

Whatís your best (or worst) freeway story?
Itís always a good story when I get where Iím going alive and on time.


With a nod to Randy Newman, how much do you really love L.A.?
A lot. Especially when Iím on a hike in the hills, walking down the beach, or sitting around my dining room table talking politics and trading laughs with a great group of LA friends.

What does the premise of that first question actually mean?
