The best posts usually originate in our comments. To give appreciation to our amazing (and sometimes angry) commenters we feature their broad strokes of wisdom in a tidy comment roundup.
1) SF Fashion Sucks: "Conde Nast Traveler has always hated L.A., hasn't it? Though I have to say if the question is which is the better city to visit I wouldn't say you were wrong to pick San Francisco. It is comforting that there is at least one style vs. substance argument where L.A. represents substance. I mean, I don't anticipate we're ever going to match New York, but at least in anything that matters we beat San Francisco all to hell."
2) Mounting the Offensive, Part 2: Inside Orsini II's Apartments: "Fork, meet eyeballs. If I wanted to live in a suburb of Phoenix, I'd live in a motherfucking suburb of Phoenix."
3) Tale of Two Cities: Gentrification Bingo: "let me add restaurants where the waiter begins by saying 'Let me explain the menu concept to you..."'
4) Downtown's Nokia Theater: A Booking Success, But Now What?: "#4, I don't know why you're talking about schools, and crumbling whatevers, and the sky falling down. Try to focus, eh Grandpa? Architects, Planners and developers are increasingly not designing the built environment to accommodate your fucked-up paradigm. Downtown is not an amusement park where you can be assured of easy access from your parking spot, it is a city. And it is increasingly becoming a city for people, not cars."
