So I was reading this piece by Joan Walsh (on the Frost bit, of course), and I decided to see if this is Joan Walsh who occasionally appears on hardball and other shows. So, I clicked on the about Joan tab:
I’ve written for everyone from the Los Angeles Times and Washington Post to Vogue and the Nation. I love baseball, Bruce Springsteen, Stephen Colbert and long walks on the beach. I live in San Francisco with my daughter, Nora, the best teenager ever.
Am I the only person who couldn’t care less for long walks on the beach? Sand in my toes, the option of either grit in my shoes or flip-flops or having to carry them, etc. Screw that. I would rather be in the damned water. Am I alone in that I would rather be drinking fruity drinks or nursing the inevitable beach vacation hangover before eating lots of seafood at the raw bar?
In fairness, she may just be joking as that is such a cliche.
