Why you should care
Because in the Pacific Ocean, no one can hear you scream.
California, the Beach Boys, surfer girls, endless summers and each and every other cliché you can throw a non-clichéd stick at all seem to crumble like so much wet sand when anyone has the temerity to actually venture out to one of those beaches. Especially the Northern California variety. So what gives? And why the hell do people come to a place for swimming and not swim?
Put a better way: What do they know that our intrepid beach correspondent Eugene S. Robinson doesn’t know? Outside of just about everything?
Oh, you know … possibly, probably that secrets lurk out on those sandy shores. But which secrets? And what do they portend for suit-wearing beachgoers? Watch as OZY goes long and deep.
