    They finally put the LA in LAX.

    Five years ago, if someone had invited you to a black tie party at the Tom Bradley International Terminal, you’d think they were being ironic.  The main international terminal at the country’s third largest airport had all the sophistication and...

  • What makes Kobe so L.A.?

    By Joel Chasnoff

    May 14, 2009 | 11:06 am

    Saw this sign at Los Angeles International Airpot, and I’m still trying to figure out what it means. Just what, exactly, is “so L.A.” about Kobe Bryant? Is it his talent? His competitive drive? His being accused of a felony only to have all charges mysteriously dropped?

    Nine years ago, my wife and I returned home from lunch in a friend's sukkah on the first day of Sukkot. The phone was ringing as we walked in, and since we'd only just arrived in Los Angeles we didn't have an answering machine set up yet. Since we don't use the phone on Shabbat or...

    Last Friday was to have been one of Victoria "Vicky" Hen's happiest days. As a surprise, her boyfriend, Yaron Cohen, had planned to formally propose marriage to the 25-year-old Israeli American.

    By Yuval Rotem
