    Where is a decent, relatively safe place to live for USC students? I am hoping to find a place with a short commute time.

    South Pasadena or Culver City. If the kid is going to be going to school in the next 4 years, South Pasadena has better schools.

    You might want to check it out Skid Row. I heard places in that area are reasonably priced and actually quite nice. The commute is not so bad either.

    I actually did check out the skid row section of south central a two weeks ago. I went on a run around the downtown area and took a couple of wrong turns. Saw a lot of cop cars blocking side streets with police officers, guns drawn. I'll pass.

    So the Neo-Gothic Card Board Box Architecture isn't your Style huh??

    LA is strange that way. On one block you have the Walt Disney Concert Hall and million dollar SkyLofts. And the very next block is lined with hungry homeless people living in cardboard boxes and I literally mean cardboard boxes.

    Driving down Broadway or by Little Tokyo at night is one of the most depressing things I've seen. I think alot of the homeless are actually just schizophrenics that the system just chose to ignore. Because I saw alot of people just screaming and talking to themselves.

    It's a part of our society that people don't want to see. And I can't blame them - it's sad. When I was an undergrad I used to volunteer in alot of food drives, especially around the holidays. But now I'm scared to say I've become surprisingly indifferent.
