-- 1919

"Life in San Diego was sunny and quiet."
-- The 42nd Parallel

"She began to feel that there was a great throbbing arclighted world somewhere outside and that only living in Georgetown where everything was so poky and old-fashioned, and Mommer and Popper were so poky and oldfashioned, kept her from breaking into it."
