a: America ~
b: Norma Desmond


"In another respect, though, the similarities between Norma Desmond and Los Angeles indeed, between Norma Desmond and America as a whole are distinct. We twirl grandly through our fraying mansion, dreaming that the glory days aren't really over. In both cases there's massive denial of ongoing decline. Nobody wants to confront the fact that the infrastructure is crumbling."
