Doesn't Know Us From Adam
Adam Nagourney in The New York Times starts a recent piece thus:
LOS ANGELES — When Stephen Turner pulled his silver Mercedes into the Mobil station on a gritty stretch of Hollywood near Vine Street and Santa Monica Boulevard, he did not immediately recognize the gigantic man with Windex who ambled over and offered to wash his windows for a tip.
Hey, this is where I live. That's my Mobil station. So Nagourney thinks it's gritty? It may not be Brentwood, but gritty? I wouldn't say that.
If Adam wants me to drive him around Los Angeles a little, I'll show him gritty.
PS. The caption to the main photo reads "Lewis Brown spends much of his days at a Mobil station, washing drivers' windows." Perhaps, but the photo shows him in front of the local 7-Eleven.
