LAist has spent most of the day battling trackback spam and other evil creatures so we haven't really had time to comment on the stories of interest to us today like the arrival of Democrats in Santa Monica, the life of a job almost exclusive to the San Fernando Valley - The Suitcase Pimp or the grounding of a 'banner' airline but we were annoyed enough by a commentary in The Cornell Daily Sun to come out of our de-spam cubby hole and vent.

Now, We're not thin-skinned about the rep our city has for being shallow, vain, blah blah blah. Really, we're not. We're just hopeful for more creative criticism. Its 2005, hasn't our supposed obsession with diets and healthy living, the entertainment industry and traffic been well-documented? Writing about those things is like going to the south and complaining about humidity or going to New York and noticing that there are lots of cabs.

Yeah, we know.

What a burn.

If you're going to bring it, Cornell, really bring it!
