Fearing for the future

I’m traveling abroad and received news of the seal takeover at Scripps Pool. As a former LJ Cove Swim Club member and Lifeguard at La Jolla Country Club I can only say that the apathy I encountered from water sport enthusiasts on the issue will bring them their just desserts.

Beyond the expense to taxpayers, the polluted waters and the added parking mayhem, one is hard pressed to conceive of a more entirely preposterous scheme than creating a seal breeding ground amidst the most popular water sport venue on the West Coast.

As the song goes ... “I want to be around to pick up the feces when shark-eaten bodies break apart ...”

I want to be there to point out the idiots and shout “blood on your hands.”
