Carlo Rota: (On the pros/cons of life in L.A) I won't bore you with the pros. Here are the cons: Not enough cloudy days! I can never stay home with a good book and a nice cup of tea because I feel guilty. Also, whilst jogging from Santa Monica to Venice Beach, I have noticed how tiny some of the beach wear is! There are cold snaps in January. I get worried that some of those people will get chilly. My Mexican neighbours are too lovely and friendly. I'm suspicious.
