    Los Angeles - Famous for hot, sunny weather. Traffic. Hollywood. Fake boobs. But what makes it unique is that the city is so diverse through the sprawl that you can drive 15-20 minutes and feel like you're in a totally different world.

    My hometown: Windsor Locks, CT - The only thing I can think of is that it is halfway between New York City and Boston. There's a road called Halfway House Road which used to have a station or something that was where people would stop. Besides that, Windsor Locks was hope to the busiest commercial airport in Connecticut. It was beat up by a tornado in 1975. People still talk about it.

    I live in the future birthplace of Captain Kathryn Janeway of the intrepid class starship USS Voyager (you know... from Star Trek). The 1979 film Breaking Away was also filmed in and about an anual bike race in Bloomington.

    Kerouac did some firewatching in the mountains near here. There is the Ski to Sea race every spring. It's the hip place to retire. (Go**amn old people) A little south there's a tulip festival. BTW Free2, I used to live in So. Oregon. Went to the Shakespearean theaters in Ashland all the time. Mom used to work for H&D.
