Our Far-Flung Correspondents: SoCal

Continuing our series of reports from Curbed's far-flung correspondents, today we hear from a Curbed reader in Southern California?twice! A sample:

I'm addicted to Curbed. It is better than any sitcom, for no comedy writer could come up with the real life stuff you guys report. I'm glad to know that not all the wackos are here in Southern California, and that you guys have a few of them too. I'm not aware of anyone here paying $75 million for a penthouse, but if you guys start it there, it will soon be out here.
After the jump, two complete far-flung emails, including a Christo conspiracy theory that implicates Bloomberg.

A Curbed reader emails:

Curbed:

Here I am in southern California, you know, "la la land" with palm trees and wackos that should be
climbing them. I'm reading about the Gates, Christo, his wife, and am seeing Central Park on the nightly news. So, here's my take on the situation from my perch 3,000 miles away.

The Gates are a conspiracy between the Cristos and the Mayor to distract New Yorkers from whatever it is they do not want people to focus on. Take your pick of ills. Please send a blogger into the trenches to get to the bottom of this nonsense.

In any event, I continue to visit your site whenever possible and think you guys (and gals) are awesome. Or, maybe, as you might say, fucking awesome.

Be good. Enjoy the circus. Enjoy the ride.

This same correspondent had emailed us in January:
Curbed:

I'm 3,000 miles away in sunny southern California, yes, you know, la-la land, filled with palm trees and fruits of every variety (not necessarily fruit that grows on trees but rather the fruits that inhabit them).

I'm addicted to Curbed. It is better than any sitcom, for no comedy writer could come up with the real life stuff you guys report. I'm glad to know that not all the wackos are here in so Cal, and that you guys have a few of them too. I'm not aware of anyone here paying $75 million for a penthouse, but if you guys start it there, it will soon be out here.

I still suspect we have a lot more wackos here than you guys do there.
A scary thought indeed.
