Does anyone want to make a plane trip to the L.A. area to do this (not
in time for the Tufte reading, but in general)?  Typically Southwest
is now charging $39 each way to LAX if you book far enough in advance.
So it looks like a roundtrip would be about $80.

I was just thinking about how little tourism I've done around L.A.
