A Farewell to "Nuts"
By The Simon Editors
Jun 29, 2007
As long-time Angelenos, explaining our hometown is always a challenge. To some, it is a place of movie studios and wannabe actors, to others it's all about the beaches and perfect weather, and yet still, it can be the noir-setting for Raymond Chandler and the Black Dahlia. Los Angeles is so many different things to so many people: It's one of the more indefinable places in the world. We suppose that's part of its charm, but also what can make it frustratingly elusive.
On Monday, we will run the final installment of L.A. Nuts. It's been a wild ride, Joe, like careening down the Arroyo Parkway at high speed. They say that Los Angeles is a transient city -- buildings never last long and people come and go quickly. We hope that you'll visit us again -- that The Simon isn't something you see just in your rearview mirror.
