Marina-Brand Optimism

New, 3 comments

Chron blog On the Block wonders aloud at the strange relationship between the likelihood of earthquake disaster in the Marina and the neighborhood's high prices, saying its "success obviously defies the impending doom of a major quake." They then compare Marina properties to Marina girls: "... despite the bitter cold and wind, Marina girls appear on the street without coats. ... indeed, the very least amount of fabric possible covers their goose-pimpled flesh. Perhaps this is a kind of optimism the Marina does best: if I ignore the elements, they don't exist, and therefore cannot hurt me." [On the Block]
