As some of my readers know I travel to California from time to time for reasons which are not the subject of this post. Los Angeles, this time of the year is clear and warm and dry. There must be something in the air that affects peoples finances because it seems as though everywhere you go in the city there are advertisements. Some on walls, some on large pilons, some on the backs of bus stop benches, and they are all trying to sell you something either very cheap or on favorable terms.

Here are a few examples:

LASER SURGERY, NO MONEY DOWN, FIRST PAYMENT 24 MONTHS

DIVORCE $399

TOOTH EXTRACTIONS $49 -see picture right. If you click on picture you will see there is no mention of novacaine for the extraction!

BANKRUPTCY $799 (These are all over the place)

I’m not being critical just observing, but it did occur to me if I were in the advertising business I’d combine a few of these ads, maybe:

DIVORCE AND BANKRUPTCY, TWO FOR THE PRICE OF ONE

BANKRUPTCY $499, NO COST FOR TOOTH EXTRACTION

Having said all this I must say I enjoy coming out, and as they say about NYC, nice place to visit but…..
