The Feel Of L.a.

October 18, 1992

I am not a writer, but I can appreciate a beautifully written piece ("Coming Into the City," by Richard Rodriguez, Sept. 13). Unlike Rodriguez, I was born and raised in Los Angeles, and I used to love it.

Rodriguez's words have helped me define my jumbled thoughts and unclog my feelings about the city and the way it has changed since 1979. I guess I must have been in a state of denial until I read the article.

I'm curious, though: If Rodriguez does not like Los Angeles, what prompted him to write the article. It certainly was not an offensive piece, but I wonder why he'd even care.
