Los Angeles

    The view most runners have of LA comes straight out of the trids. Beautiful beaches, cleaming arcologies, bleeding-edge cars, and beautiful people as far as the eye can see. That's the truth - well, minus the beaches - for a few hundred high-paid executives and nova-hot simstars. For the other 99.99 percent of Angelinos, LA is a simmering cauldron of tensions and underlying hatreds waiting to errupt, and no ammount of media saturation can stop it.
