We'd like to think that all is happy in Los Angeles. We're having a beautiful, mostly dry winter. We've got a new mayor who's charming, handsome, and seems to be excited about his job. Sure, we might complain about traffic tickets, rude waiters, disloyal football players, and dumb questions for David Foster Wallace, but we all kinda love this place. Right. Right?

Well, maybe we do, but people reading the LA Times today — maybe not. The top e-mailed story from their site today is Seeking People to Work Down Under. Turns out Australia needs skilled workers — and LA Times readers are ready to head for the land of the Crocodile Hunter.
