THE BAY AREA'S GAIN, OUR LOSS
About 13 years ago, I discovered the L.A. Weekly. A fellow high school sophomore brought the paper onto campus to show his friends all the kinky personal ads in the back. After a couple of weeks, I noticed there were articles in the front. I have been hooked ever since.
I could make this a long, drawn-out letter, elaborating on the eye-opening stories, my favorite writers, the coolest features . . . but I just want to say goodbye. I'm moving to the Bay Area this weekend, and while I've heard wonderful things about the Guardian and other papers up there, they will never hold the same place in my heart that the Weekly has.
So thank you, Weekly, for giving me plenty of reasons to love and detest L.A. I will miss this city - and you - terribly.
