Book Blog Tour: Bethany Actually

Bethany Actually asked-

You clearly are uneasy about the celebrity culture of our society (intensified by reality-tv shows like "The Real World" and "Jon and Kate plus 8"). I know there is much more to Los Angelest than the television industry, but you can't deny that the country's spiritual center of the Church of Easy Fame in Hollywood. You grew up in L.A. Consort is from New York. How do you feel about raising your daughter in L.A.? Have you ever considered moving elsewhere? Why or why not?

I mock Los Angeles because, come on, it's LOS ANGELES. Shallow, complacently incurious, the home of the formal Ugg. And yet, it's not a bad place to raise a kid if you use it fully. We've got nature, we've got some terrific programs through the museums. We've got a ton of underemployed artistic types with time to volunteer, which leads to things like 826la.org. Most relevent, we continue to stay in Los Angeles because all of our daughter's extended family is here, including her grandparents. I'd love to have a place where she walked out back and fed her pony, but the reality is there isn't a big enough asthma inhaler for me to become a country mouse.

re: the pony,

ever thought about moving up the 210 a few exits to Tujunga? I've got a friend with a gorgeous mid-century place and horses all around.
