OVERHEARD IN OCEAN VIEW

Ocean View is a many-splendored thing. I wasn't planning on enjoying it much, but it was a very pleasant, laid-back, rough-edged place. Much more to my liking than the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. Why is everyone so intent on weeding out the seediness of places? Virginia Beach reminds me of that whatchamacallit Disney town in Florida that would drive any sentient being bonkers. And there are signs of encroaching Disneyfication in Ocean View, too, sorry to say. Is Pat Robertson behind this somehow? Instead of Pat, why couldn't we have gotten Jimmy Swaggart, whose presence would have guaranteed us at least one sleazy motel full of hookers?
