I HEART LAGlad to see Andrew Sullivan took a weekend off, headed to the West Coast and stopped being a total anti-Los Angeles snob for a few days.

He describes that great area called "walk Temple" in the LA Classified ads -- Fairfax near the Farmer's Market -- which I love too. Miss Dupar's for sure.
