Meantime, On the Left Coast

While you're hunkering down this weekend on the East Coast, eating a can of beans by flashlight, you may think, "Geez, wish I lived in Los Angeles. Sure they get earthquakes, and I discovered what that's like this week. Whatever. At least they don't get hurricanes."

True.

But before you pack your bags to go west, watch the hilarious montage of LA promotions from the last century. Los Angeles is "home of the beautiful people," says a tanned and fit George Hamilton.

"This is what I love about LA," says the Hoff, and he gestures to a coast skyline you can't really see because of the smog.

Irene will pass. Cheesy Hollywood promotions never go away.
