Jodi Krakower L&A B-20 – Cities TF: Gareth Doherty, Tu 12:00 4/10/07 Section Response Paper – Week of 4/2/07 1) “Holy Land” – DJ Waldie DJ Waldie’s “Holy Land” focuses on the city of Lakewood, CA. Lakewood was called the “Holy Land” because it was built around the idea of being a sort of Promised Land. The title “Holy Land” was earned because many of the people living in the area were devout Catholics. There was an idea of equality, because all the houses in Lakewood came readily equipped with a full kitchen and appliances, and everyone had a large yard. Waldie noted that the title given to the community is somewhat ironic because suburban life was really not all that perfect. There is a general theme of artificiality here, because there were strict regulations on the plot layouts. Also, the large scale and speed at which the town was built is almost unbelievable. Lastly, Waldie says that the city was really just built on such a large scale for cost benefits rather than as a Promised Land for the people.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
