East vs. West: Our Celebrities Try to Settle It

MAYBE SOMEONE WHO MOVED to Los Angeles last year can't be considered a guru on where the city splits. That's why for America's birthday I turn to America's experts: celebrities.

Here they are, VIPs and sort-of-IPs, in quotes actual and alleged, helping us build the wall:

Apart from John Cusack, I've never even heard of these people. Celebrities, you say?

For what it's worth, growing up in Brentwood and Malibu, I thought the world kinda dropped off east of Doheny.

While not a celebrity proper, Manhattan Beach proclaims it is "West of Ordinary." A strict interpretation of this statement means that everything east of Manhattan Beach's locale is plain ordinary. And since this was spoken ex cathedra, Manhattan Beach is infallible, like all other civic institutions.

The west is the best, by decree.

I knew a lot of people in high school who lived in Santa Monica, Brentwood, etc and they all said the same thing. What a shame.

OK, I was a bit generous on calling some of them "celebrities," but at least they're representative of what the common people are saying.

Scott Neeson's full comment though wasn't meant to disparage the area east of La Brea, though, but acknowledging the sheltered life he has lived in the Westside. Although, I'm a little offended that he thinks of the area as being a bad place.

That's funny. Sad commentary on an otherwise great city. There's also the Valley and LA seperated by "the hill". Then there's the other valley known better than the San Gabriel Valley that is just there hooked forever to LA but tries to muddle along as if it isn't.

I wish people would stick to what they say then.

STAY west of the 405. It would help the effen traffic, you westside pricks with your shiny bumpers and expensive schools for your precious babies. Do I sound bitter?

Westside drivers are the worst evar.
