I live a few blocks from the offices of Marx Realty, which has long amused me. You know, the irony of using the name Marx for a business predicated on selling people property. It’s funny! I mean, not hilarious or anything, but worth a wry, I-still-remember-Social-Studies-class chuckle.
It took on much more significance this past weekend while I was in Orange County, though. While en route to the airport, I passed a billboard for Adam Smith Realtors.
If that doesn’t encapsulate the differences between San Francisco and Los Angeles, I don’t know what does.
