Are the L.A. fans good fans? How many transplanted Easterners are here because the weather is nice and there aren't any jobs back east? The next time you Easterners are at an Angels-Yankees game delighting with the fellow next to you how bad the L.A. fans are, ask each other where you're from. DAWN MARIE WHITE Canoga Park
