Jonah Goldberg...

...at the beach:
I am at the beach for much of August...The Delmarva coast has a lot going for it (Delmarva is not only a fitting name for a transvestite born with the name Del, it's also an abbreviation for the intersection of Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia, in case you didn't know). It's quaint. The people are nice. It's family oriented. What it doesn't have going for it is climate. In California, New England, etc., you go to the ocean and you cool off. But this is figurative. You can sit outside and have a sandwich without looking and feeling like the Wicked Witch of the East after Dorothy threw water on her ("Helios! Look what you've done to me, I'm melting!"). In Delmarva, or so it seems during this heat wave, you have to be physically in the ocean to cool off. Step out of the ocean and within seconds you feel like a forgotten order of fries under a Denny's heat lamp.
Goldberg said it far more colorfully than I did. But then a hot day at the beach is better than...
