Over-rated in Beverly Hills
Aaaah, Beverly Hills - Los Angeles' beacon of wealth and privilege. I don't think I've been there in over ten years. But on Tuesday I had an entire day to just wander the streets. Normally, I don't trust popular opinion. Maybe it's because I grew up in the 80s, when popular opinion gave us big shoulder pads, bigger hair, the Star-Wars defense system, Hall and Oats and Chubacca-like eyebrows. But that mistrust caused me to deny myself Nirvana, Anne Rice, and Krispy Kreme donuts for many years. So maybe I should just give some popular spots a chance. I decided to spend the day checking out the places everyone loves, and everyone else loves to hate.
