Los Angeles is a long way from Plastic Valley...

So far in fact that in one round trip airline flight you can rack up enough frequent flyer miles that they just give you your own plane and say to hell with it. Consequently, ticket cost for this sort of thing can require you to default on the national debt or may involve selling mass quantities of refined plutonium to any underdeveloped country that is willing to default on THEIR national debt to buy it from you. Since Andrah and myself have no unrefined plutonium laying around that we don't use for our OWN kitchen appliances, we loaded up the hovervan and headed for the land of floods, fires and fun, blissfully unaware of the fiscal fiasco we were about to experience.
