The surprising demise of Cirque du Soleil's "Iris" at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood has disappointed local cultural and business leaders who had hoped the production would become a long-running presence in the city. Despite promises that "Iris" would run for 10 years, the consensus is that the show never captured the public's imagination, confounded by a low level of excitement in Los Angeles and high ticket prices, which rose to as much as $253 for certain VIP packages. "It didn't capture the fancy of Angelenos like 'Wicked' or 'The Lion King,' which became must-see events," said Leron Gubler, president of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.

I often lament have left Los Angeles, my hometown, to live in San Francisco, especially now that I have a son.

Yearning for somewhere fabulous to stop so we could cuddle him without the stench of manure and diesel, we vowed to start taking the nice way. Three years later (after chalking up more than 100,000 miles)
