Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles, often called simply L.A., is the largest city in the state of California and the second-largest (only to New York City) in the United States. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Los Angeles metropolitan area has a total area of 4,850 square miles and is home to roughly 13 million people. Los Angeles was founded in 1781 by Spanish Captain Rivera y Moncada, yet it was not incorporated as a municipality until April 4, 1850—five months before California achieved statehood. It is the county seat of Los Angeles County. The Los Angeles area is one of the world's centers of culture, science, technology, international trade, and higher education, and is home to world-renowned institutions in a broad range of professional and cultural fields. The city and its immediate surrounding vicinity lead the world in producing popular entertainment—such as motion pictures, television, and recorded music—which forms the base of Los Angeles's international fame and global status.

    Linda (guest) My uncle was a paramedic in the front lines during the D-Day Invasion. After the war, he worked at Cedars of Lebanon as a surgical assistant - assisting the doctors during an operation. In fact, he assisted brother brothers of James Cagney. During the years, he also assisted the doctors in the operating room with Desi Arness, Jane Wyman, George Chakaris, just to name a few. It was great hearing what it was like to work in a huge hospital where famous people go to get well. Thanks to my uncle, I am also a regular patient at Cedars Hospital, where I always receive the best medical care. My daughters go there too! My uncle retired in 1976. He enjoyed his years at Cedars of Lebanon.
