Funny LA Stereotypes in the NY Times

This years LA Weekly Best of LA features a listing of kooky Los Angeles stereotypes proffered by the New York Times:
Few are things more amusing than the pouty generalizations about Los Angeles written by East Coast ironists — or, worse (that is, better), by a local desperately currying favor with a New York editor. From their keyboards spring a reassuringly familiar town that never wakes, an L.A. obsessed with cars and cosmetic surgery and that hates films with subtitles
Other than this, there are some great articles about LA in this issue, divided into the categories of: Memory, Terrain, Mirrors, Destinations and Encounters.
