What did San Diego ever do for me? Isn’t it just one big military base, surrounded by hundreds of square miles of plastic suburbs? Isn’t it LA without what passes for culture up there? Isn’t the cool part of San Diego really Tijuana, now behind a new Berlin Wall?
Early spring days at the beach are a decent selling point, I admit it. The nice flowers aren’t too bad, either. OK, San Diego isn’t perfect, but it’s got its share of nice qualities.
