Summary:
A trip to the beach these days is another opportunity to feel bad about your outfit, because nothing is scared anymore.

Representative Quote:
"it’s only in New York on the way to the sole gorgeous sand strip in the world lying beneath the J.F.K. flight path that one will encounter a pack of smartly dressed women with full-sleeve tattoos who are volubly — and with their generation’s blithe disregard for social niceties — squawking at myna-bird speed about their shopping and money and boyfriend habits, and even more intimate things."

Takeaway:
These reporters have an unreal ability to find the very worst people, and get them to say the very worst things, while posing for pictures. We are all monsters.
