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."

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.
