Elon Musk Presents His Tunnel Vision to the People of LA

One day, if Elon Musk gets his way, the Leo Baeck Temple in Los Angeles’ tony Bel Air neighborhood will be just a hop, skip and a quick walk from the nearest Loop station.

But the goal is the same: no waiting, no gasoline, no traffic.

Today, though, getting to the temple, where Musk hosted the Boring Company’s first public informational meeting, requires crawling through miles of hideous 405 rush hour traffic.

Still, an hour and a half before the event’s scheduled start, a small crowd of people were pressing against the yellow tape holding them back from the main entrance.

The few hundred folks who managed to score a ticket fell into two camps: local residents, typically older couples living in this wealthy neighborhood, and Elon fans, most of them young men in their Boring Company hats and SpaceX hoodies.

“Highways are at the outer limit of their capacity,” he said as Gary the snail, his company's mascot, silently inched across its pineapple-shaped terrarium, sitting next to the CEO.
