I had to chuckle when I read Peter King’s column on May 29 about his friends who were leaving Los Angeles to move to Austin, Texas.
We left Los Angeles to move there, back in 1991. It was a bitter disappointment. The “lower cost of living” was an illusion. Being trapped indoors by the climate was awful. Realizing that my 12-mile commute there took just as long as it did here was the final straw. We moved back last year.
