Well, here we are in that great normality rehab of the West -- Los Angeles. It's the Nissan Open at lovely Riviera Country Club, just off the Sunset Strip, between Beverly Hills and Malibu, teetering on the crusty spine of the San Andreas fault. This place always reminds me of an old Warren Zevon song:
- "And if California slides into the ocean,
as the mystics and statistics say it will,
I believe this motel will be standing,
until I've paid my bill."
