Count on the New Yorker to really class up the Los Angeles stereotyping game: Today Meghan O'Rourke writes that Angelenos are all laconic drivers (except in the Hills!), vegans, potheads, and people who say things like "consciously conscious." But also that given the strange and traumatic disasters that have befallen East Coast cities lately (Sandy, the Boston bombings), "L.A.'s soot raining down from a sky of sun seems relatively normal: a kind of pathetic fallacy for our climate-changing, end-days era."
