Breathing right...

It's always struck me as funny, the emphasis on health in Los Angeles as compared to the toxicity of the air. People are generally in denial about this, and it makes one suspect that the health regimens are meant to make us "look good naked" as Kevin Spacey famously put it in American Beauty. I think of all the thousands of yoga classes that teach deep kundalini breathing as a means of getting oxygen to the brain. That's sort of like eating rat poison to get calcium to the bones. You've got to be near the water to get clean air here. People say you'll sacrifice culture West of La Cienega. What about creating your own culture and breathing clean, he posits after ten gagging years in toxic Hollywood.
