The Ugly American

  The people that live in this town!
I read a letter in the editorial section of the Virginian Pilot today from Vicktoria Mudd of Virginia Beach, complaining about teens hanging out on street corners down at the beach. She says, "Sadly, I am reminded why the locals do not venture to the Oceanfront during tourist season." Sadly, I am reminded of the grouchy old people that lived around me when I lived in between two retirement communities in AZ. Anything a child or a teen did out there was guaranteed to be wrong!

As it stands now, you can’t drive on Atlantic Ave (cruising law), you can’t curse anywhere at the beach(signs that read NO #%&*), if you park slightly wrong anywhere around the ocean front for more than 2 minutes your car will be towed. You can’t drink a beer on the beach. Make a misstep at 2AM and you’ll be arrested for drunk in public. I’ve even heard stories of someone sitting in the back of a car, being ordered out by VB police and then arrested for drunk in public! We have garbage music piped in at 2:15AM for who knows what reason other than to annoy people. Let's not forget the glaring spot lights they use to light up Atlantic AVe at 2AM!

So what’s next? What about all those teenagers loitering on the beach itself? Why not just turn the ocean front into a New Jersey type beach, PRIVATE! Then people like Ms. Mudd can have what they want, the beach all to themselves! Of course, it’ll come with a membership fee. I guess Ms. Mudd and her friends can make sure they set the fee high enough to make sure these obnoxious teens can’t afford it!

Ms. Mudd says these teens are intimidating! Someone intimidated by kids obviously has never had any!

Refreshing. I worry about degenerating into an old fart ... moaning about the young, who, after all, are the future of this strange little planet.

Belittling teens and kids is a pet peeve of mine. I for one, believe respect is EARNED not by an age but by an attitude.
