Los Angeles

From tomorrow's paper, a column by Mary McNamara: "Personal space in cruising cocoons."
For all its purported body worship and collective gym memberships, Los Angeles is not a physical city. People visiting here are struck by the lack of direct contact required by daily life -- unlike in New York or Paris or Tokyo or Rome, you can go about your business for days in Los Angeles without touching another soul or even bumping shoulders....

Los Angeles is all about being in a city but not of it.
