The last thing that the home of Hollywood needs is George Lucas' treacly art collection, which is replete with more positivity than a film feature devoted to Jar Jar Binks. Los Angeles already has enough saccharine destinations: the Grove, the Dolby Theatre, every booth at Bootsy Bellows.

- That Thomas Kinkade village in Vallejo. Because all that architecture intended to take you back to a "simpler" time should tenderize your brain enough to see Lucas' collection.
- Celebration, Fla. That puny park in Anaheim is nothing compared to what the House of Mouse has come up with in Florida: a whole city, one that is probably desperately in need of a museum.
- Times Square. Let's face it, any place that is home to a Hershey's store, a
Toys R Usand a Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. deserves what it gets.
