The real problem with LAX

Before you

To get from one side of the airport to the other side is always a goddamned headache. You're screwed at every angle. The 405, Sepulveda, Pershing, even Vista Del Mar's a bitch because you're likely to get popped by the cops. Man, what gives?

To make things even more lame, if you DO wind up on Sepulveda, and are forced to go under that tunnel, you lose all decent radio reception. As though it weren't bad enough that the jerk in the blue Mazda Miata wants to race me (all of a sudden), I miss the potentially one funny thing that Adam Carrola said all morning because all i could hear was static.

Did I mention that almost all cab drivers are asshole drivers? If you're reading this, and you're the lone kind-hearted cab driver, I apologize. But these mustache-wearing, dirty-look giving, receding hair-line having sons of bitches need to stop imitating my speed-up/slow-down patterns so that I can MERGE out of this crap lane already, or I'm going to go mental.

I don't get it, they say that airlines are going out of business... And yet LAX is as crowded with sad sorry sacks of cant-drive-for-shits as it ever was.

And because LAist knows that Mayor Villaraigosa is an everyday reader: the carpool lane on the 405 by the airport was a horrible idea. Fix it.
