Probably Bolinas... or some other beach town where dogs wander around off-leash, chase tennis balls in the water, and pee on people's beach-gear bags, and where the streets are filled with 60-year-old hippies in tie-dyed shirts with long white beards and glazed expressions.

I am convinced that the beards are fake, and that the hippies are senior partners at San Francisco law firms. Who else can afford to live in West Marin these days?

People who bought their little hippie shacks 30 years ago, I'm guessing. Either that or the houses I've been in in Bolinas were an extremely convincing front.

Anyone who'd accept the money would be run out of town.

Speaking of which, the Bolinas Border Patrol changed its name to Bolinas Community, so as to no longer offend Bolinas' whopping Latino population.

I hope that Lobofilho and Catherine are happy together, but mostly I want to see Tim, Ogged, and FL confronted with the horrible emptiness of their own lives.

I do confess that, while I don't think that it will actually play out that way, I would indeed be willing to sacrifice Lobofilho and Catherine in the pursuit of that goal. Omelettes, you know.
