    I love all these questions. Do you have a list that we can answer in a survey? I think it would be cool to do a scatterplot of people's answers.

        1. I'm in Los Angeles because I was born here and never found myself wanting to leave for any particular opportunity.

        2. I love that my city is artistic, diverse, and I can eat any type of food around here.

        3. The best thing happening in my city today: downtown LA is becoming a hotbed for the startup scene and it's leading to some interesting businesses and culture popping up around there.

        4. City's biggest challenges: public transportation/walkable and bikeable streets

        5. My city is not serving the homeless well.

        6. The worst thing that could happen in LA would be if air pollution took over as it has in China. I mean - it basically already has- but I can only see it getting worse.

        7. Solutions to implement: No car days. Better public transport. Bike rentals - a citibike across the city- not just in Santa Monica.

        8. How are people changing the future of LA: I see a lot of urban farms cropping up, working with schools. Love that- Enrich LA is really inspiring. So is Mud Baron. Also, they're revitalizing the LA River with LA River Corps.

        9. Hope for the city in the next 20 years: Back to streetcars and bike lanes!

        10. A question for LA: How can we serve underserved populations in LA- not just the homeless but also low-income?
