Aug 3rd 2010 8:17PM I know exactly what you mean. The LA Live was pretty much built because LA was lacking 5 star hotels and nightlife for business men on the go. The truth to the matter is that LA 'is' what it used to be; a city with great events but no spontaneous street vibe. The LA Live has many events that I'm not really interested in going to; they are mainly invitation-only events that everyone wishes they could be part of even more if it's VIP (gag) and in other days they close early. Downtown is still trying to get stores out of Broadway St and other dark areas to replace them with a more upbeat crowd but end up being clubs or VIP events like LA Live that the regular group of friends or couple doesn't want to be part of. If you want to see decent night life the choice appears in pocket areas with one or two blocks of down to earth interaction and these places could be miles apart from each other.
Jul 14th 2010 4:32PM Well... In my experience not only Turkey busses. I can't say I have been in a bus where there's service like in the photo but I can say that growing up in Argentina I have taken bus trips for 6 - 8 hrs and the comfort is pretty much like that of a plane sans the peanut/soda. Brand new double-decker Scania busses all around and that was 15 yrs ago; I heard that some have WIFI today. I think there's a misconception in the US that if you travel by bus it's ok to get 'a seat on 4 wheels'. Busses are a great alternative to planes for trips of 400 miles where it could end up being faster avoiding all airport headaches. Greyhound today is far from being on my list of alternatives to flying.
Mar 29th 2010 4:01PM I never risk it too much. I pretty much carry with me what I can't afford to lose. Thieves look for money or jewelry anyway. I'd say if I have to leave a computer or money at a hotel I would never leave money behind.
Jan 29th 2010 1:23AM If I were Adobe I'd hide my head under the ground. How can they come out and talk so freely about this when their product is not even a web standard. Adobe is not following a standard protocol that makes the web work.
Dec 20th 2009 3:17AM Amtrak should announce on the PA that 'there is a gun in this train which belongs to John Doe sitting in xx seat'. I would want to know and decide if I want to go on that train. I would also charge 3 times for the ticket for passengers bringing a gun for the inconvinience of those that deside to change the ticket because of it.
Sep 12th 2009 5:51PM I just think that if a passenger doesn't fit securely in a seat he/she would not fit securely with two tickets either. It must've been pretty embarrassing. I think it would be easier if passengers made sure they fit before boarding planes.
