IT'S A MAN THING: Go the Welch comments here and watch all the guys (and Seipp) jawin' about the L.A. directions! Don't they just sound like a buncha old farts? "Well, we took the 110 to LaBrea and hung a left on Vermont down to the Quickie Mart. But I'm bettin' that if we'd'a taken the 10 to the Crenshaw cutoff we'd save at least five minutes! (NOTE: Not real directions!) Oh, and you kids get offa my lawn!" And on a linguistic note, what's this tic of adding a definite article to freeway numbers? You don't get on 5 or I-5, you get on "the 5." This just a So-Cal thing? I never heard this from any S.F.-ites who smelled good enough to go near (except in Layne's filthy novel, but that may have just been the Australian translation).
